PSAC’s tentative agreements with Treasury Board covering the TC, SV, PA and EB  bargaining units will only take effect if they are ratified in a vote by our members. Voting takes place at a meeting, after a presentation and an opportunity for members to ask questions. Every member covered by these agreements has a right to vote in the ratification process, however you must be a PSAC member in good standing to cast a vote. Membership application forms will be available at the meetings.
