Bargaining Mobilization

Nationally, PSAC is currently in negotiations with CFIA, CRA, Parks CanadaSSO, and the Treasury Board: FB, EB, PA, SV and TC groups. PSAC’s bargaining teams are working hard at the table to improve collective agreements and strengthen the federal public service. They can’t do it alone, the teams need the support and the solidarity of the PSAC members they represent.

Collectively we have a lot of strength. Join with members across the country and support our teams!

Visibility in the workplace – letting the employer know that we stand behind the team – is key to showing that strength. Wearing a bracelet, a button, or a sticker, or taking any form of workplace action shows the employer and your supervisor that you’re aware of the issues, that you’re concerned about the issues, and that you are demonstrating solidarity.
