Union of Solicitor General Employees Local 20011 (RCMP) was one of the first Locals in BC to take our We Are All Affected campaigner training. The Local Executive members then decided to host a table at the new E Division Headquarters building in Surrey during National Public Services week. The Local's display and information on our PSAC member-to-member campaign appears to have been more popular than the employer's offering!
PSAC's Human Rights/Programs Section is gathering data and stories about how federal government cuts and Work Force Adjustment has impacted workers with disabilities. Impacts could include the loss of, or changes to, an existing accommodation, being declared surplus, or not being given a reasonable guaranteed job offer.
We are asking PSAC members with any knowledge - personal or otherwise - regarding workers with disabilities being affected by the cut backs and WFA notices to let us know.
May 17 is the International Day against Homophobia. The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) stands in solidarity with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans communities.
Respect in the workplace is essential. PSAC is there to support our members who face the hostility, homophobia or transphobia that can sometimes occur in the workplace. We are also engaged in bargaining collective agreements that meet the particular needs of our GLBT members. And we continue to work to better protect the human rights of transgendered people.
These conferences are an opportunity for our members to continue the important work of maintaining and improving the militancy and activism of the Union in the struggle to improve the human rights and working conditions of all PSAC members.
PSAC members are the foundation of our union. Everything our union is able to achieve depends on the strength and vitality of members and on their active participation.

PSAC is calling on the government to recognize that austerity isn't working – Canadians have lost services they need and job cuts are hurting the economy. You can't create jobs and prosperity by cutting jobs and services.
PSAC members in the Okanagan rocked on March 2, 2013 as union members from Kamloops, Kelowna, Nelson, Vernon & Westbank all came together for the day to participate in an interactive workshop on Building Communities & Workplace Bullying.
PSAC Regional Representative Regina Brennan opened the day with a welcome and introduction to the PSAC "We Are All Affected" campaign against federal cuts. Guest presenters were Dr. Gary Namie on Workplace Bullying and Deborah Littman on Building Communities.
