PSAC’s Treasury Board Bargaining conference closed on a determined note Sunday, as more than 300 union members committed to defending workplace rights and benefits in the next round of bargaining. Only days after the government introduced a federal budget calling for even more cuts to crucial programs, participants pledged to stand up for public sector workers and the services they provide.

Due to unforeseen circumstance, the BC Mainland Young Workers Caucus AGM scheduled for tomorrow Wednesday, Feb. 19th will be rescheduled to Wednesday, March 26th, at 5:30pm. Location is still at the PSAC Vancouver Regional Office. More details to follow.

This year’s federal budget is yet another missed opportunity for Canadians. After several years of eviscerating the public services that Canadians count on, this government continues to promote shortsighted policies that further erode public services and scapegoat federal government workers and retirees.

After more than 27 months at the bargaining table, a tentative agreement has finally been reached with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.

The deal came after two days of hard bargaining, during which PSAC’s CFIA members joined demonstrations at workplaces across the country in a massive show of support for their bargaining team.

"Our members have been amazing, both in terms of their ongoing support, and the feedback they have provided to the team," said Bob Kingston, President of Agriculture Union.

Canadians need this year’s federal budget to plan for the future and reinvest in services people need.

“For years now this government’s cuts have undermined our members’ ability to do their jobs and that’s meant fewer services for people like veterans, seniors and the unemployed,” said PSAC national president Robyn Benson.

Benson says the cuts have also undermined federal government workers’ ability to do important work like regulating and enforcing environmental protection, protecting food safety and keeping roads, railways and air travel safe.
