Ottawa - The Public Service Alliance of Canada has confirmed that 598 of its members are among the 1,072 Department of Fisheries and Oceans workers being told today that they could lose their jobs. It isn't known yet how many of these workers will be laid off or how many positions will be cut.

PSAC statement

May 17 is the International Day Against Homophobia. The Public Service Alliance of Canada stands in solidarity with lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans communities in opposition to homophobia and transphobia.

Bargaining continues to be difficult for the Technical Services (TC), Border Services (FB), Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) and Parks Canada units of the federal government. The climate has worsened considerably since the federal budget, which slashes the size of the public service. Parks and CFIA in particular have been heavily targeted for job reductions.

Here is all the convention-related information posted at the national website, all in one place.

Convention delegates and observers merged with a thousand other demonstrators, including PSAC members in the NCR, in front of the Prime Minister's Office Tuesday, chanting “Hey, Hey, Ho, Ho, Stephen Harper's got to go,” and stood together to denounce the cuts to public services.

PSAC will be holding information webinars on Work Force Adjustment. The webinar will provide you with an overview of your rights under the Work Force Adjustment Appendix.
