We are pleased to announce that Sharon Barbour is the successful candidate in the Indeterminate Regional Representative Health and Safety position in Vancouver. Sharon joined the PSAC BC Team on July 3, 2018.

Sharon is an experienced Health and Safety advocate and has been a National Union Representative with the Canada Employment and Immigration Union for several years. Prior to that, Sharon worked as a Transportation Security Advisor.

PSAC will be offering webinars for members who volunteered to be Pay Advocates on how to address common problems with Phoenix.

Participants will explore the steps to take when handling pay problems that occur due to transfer of positions or overtime. They will also explore the claims process when employees are seeking reimbursements for costs incurred due to Phoenix errors, such as paying interest on loans.

We have just received the arbitration award from Arbitrator Judi Korbin. While we are very disappointed that many of our main issues were not addressed in this award, there were some important gains. We also want to point out that not a single one of the IMP’s concessions were granted!

Collective bargaining with Treasury Board resumed this week and PSAC put forward its common proposals for all Treasury Board groups, which cover about 90,000 workers in the federal public service. The proposals focus on addressing the ongoing Phoenix fiasco, pushing back against precarious work, protecting the job security of our members and supporting women and families.

On National Indigenous Peoples Day, June 21, PSAC is distributing Red Dress Pins to raise awareness on the national issue of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls in Canada, and to urge the government to bolster the efforts of the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls (MMIWG).
