Updates

PSAC is very pleased to announce that it has reached an agreement with Treasury Board on the establishment of a joint task force on mental health.

PSAC tabled the proposal in January to ensure a more proactive approach to improving mental health. Following negotiations this week with Treasury Board, the parties agreed on the makeup, responsibilities and timelines for the task force on mental health.

One of the hallmarks of a healthy democracy is the ability of citizens to participate freely and actively in determining who they elect to govern and make decisions on their behalf.

PSAC members are encouraged to take an active role in exercising their democratic political rights by:

By Jennifer Chieh Ho, BC Regional Council Coordinator for Racially Visible Members, Public Service Alliance of Canada

Many thanks to Jennifer for writing this timely March 21st message! Jennifer will be at the 8th Annual Community March Against Racism in Vancouver on March 21, and encourages all PSAC members to join her. For more info, email chiehhj@psac-afpc.com

What you need to know about Treasury Board’s new process

The Treasury Board’s new performance management policy went into effect on April 1, 2014. There is now a detailed process in place to conduct performance assessments.

These assessments can have a significant impact on your employment and you need to know your rights and obligations during each stage of the process. 

Join us Wednesday March 18th in showing support for our Bargaining Team. Join us in calling on the government and CRA to negotiate with our union. 

On March 9th, just over 1,300 PSAC members in our Treasury Board units in BC participated in a live telephone town hall meeting with Robyn Benson, PSAC National President, Bob Jackson, PSAC BC's Regional Executive Vice-President, and Seth Sazant, Lead Negotiator at the TC Table. Robyn, Bob and Seth provided an update on bargaining with our Treasury Board units, talked about solidarity events, political action and the upcoming election, and took questions from PSAC members.
