The Local 20500 bargaining team, representing 400 PSAC members employed by the Commissionaires Victoria, the Islands and Yukon, met with the employer the week of August 25 and again the week of September 2 in Victoria.

On June 12, the payday during National Public Service Week, PSAC members at worksites across BC took action to let the government know we want a fair deal at the bargaining table and we deserve a fair Phoenix settlement. Lots more photos here at Facebook. PSAC has been committed to achieving a new contract for our members in the PA, SV, TC, and EB groups that ensures fair economic increases, improves work-life balance, strengthens job security, and closes wage gaps with the private sector.
