Now that this epic election campaign is over and we have a new government – and for many of us a new employer, I would like to take a moment to thank PSAC members in BC for your work and support over the past months and look forward to the next few years. I’m confident that all of you voted and for that I say – THANK YOU!

A message from Bob Jackson Sisters and Brothers, This October, we have an opportunity to make Canada a better place. We can elect a government that respects our collective agreements and our right to a healthy and safe workplace. We can elect a government that will bargain in good faith. One that respects the collective bargaining process, and respects public services and the workers that deliver them.

I’ve just read to the end of National Post View: The unions’ blame-Harper strategy hoping desperately that the editorialist would give me a way out of our current conundrum. I left the page disappointed and confused. Because frankly I’m not sure what the National Post wants us to do.

VICTORIA – A group of Canadian veterans and advocates will gather in Victoria on August 25th, to demand that federal election candidates re-open Veterans Affairs offices and restore funding to important veterans’ services. Veterans say they feel abandoned by the Conservative government since it closed nine Veterans Affairs offices across Canada in 2013 and 2014. This spring, the Public Service Alliance of Canada released a series of video testimonials documenting the impact of the office closures on the lives of veterans with complex medical needs.
