Bargaining Team continues to demand parity with other federal enforcement workers.

Our FB bargaining team met with Treasury Board and CBSA representatives in Ottawa the week of October 3rd to continue negotiations for a new contract. Talks over the course of the four days focussed on our proposals concerning pension reform, VSSA and non-VSSA scheduling, seniority rights and severance.

Join PSAC and other Union members at the Vancouver Art Gallery at 12:00PM, Saturday, October 15, in solidarity with the Occupy Wall Street movement’s call for good jobs, fair taxes and strong public services.

PSAC's bargaining team used the opening session with Parks Canada, Sept. 20-22 to emphasize members concerns over contracting out, the use of contractors and volunteers and the student issue.

The PSAC won an important fight to protect union members' rights in the workplace with the Public Service Labour Relations Board's decision that the Treasury Board contravened the collective agreement, including the “No Discrimination” clause, when it prohibited members from posting campaign materials to protect their pensions.

The second full session of TC bargaining, held September 21-23, got off to a rocky start.  During this session, the TC bargaining team sent a clear message to the employer: find ways to address our legitimate proposals.
