Please see the attached notice from PSAC National President Robyn Benson regarding National Public Service Week activities in June. At the March 2015 meeting of the National Board of Directors, we once again called for a boycott of NPSW.

Given that, I respectfully ask that PSAC members in BC not participate in employer sponsored activities in your workplace and that you encourage other members to do the same.

What is the significance of May 1st/International Workers’ Day?

In most other parts of the world May 1st is celebrated as Labour Day and is a celebration of labourers and the working classes that is promoted by the International Labour Movement, Anarchists, Socialists and Communists. The May 1 date was chosen to commemorate the Haymarket affair in Chicago that occurred in May 4, 1886. More info wikipedia.
