Provincewide, , BC (Map)

On March 19, join with your colleagues to support our common campaign for healthy workplaces.

Together, members of federal public sector unions will show that we want healthier workplaces and better public service for all Canadians. Together, we’ll send a clear message to the employer and to all Canadians that we support efforts to negotiate collective agreements that will take on toxic workplaces and not implement a “go to work sick” policy. Because healthy workplaces are more productive workplaces and as federal public service workers we want to provide quality public services to all Canadians.

Here is a list of events taking place across the Province - it will be updated regularly.
