February 28, 2013 is the 14th International RSI Awareness Day – a day set aside each year to focus attention on repetitive strain injuries.

This year we are looking at progress made to regulate working conditions that lead to repetitive strain injury.

PSAC has been pushing for the federal program responsible for labour to establish an ergonomic regulation since 1995 to help reduce the incidence of repetitive strain injuries in federally-regulated workplaces.

The PSAC is calling on the government to suspend HRSDC’s Integrity Branch house calls and reverse harmful changes made to the Employment Insurance system.

PSAC members at Parks Canada have voted in favour of the tentative agreement reached Nov. 26, 2012.
