Let's make 2013 Victoria Pride Parade the biggest PSAC participation that the island has ever seen!

The Vancouver Island Human Rights Committee would like to invite all Locals and PSAC members on Vancouver Island to march together as a PSAC convoy in the upcoming Victoria Pride Parade July 7, 2013. In the past years, we have marched behind multi-union convoys but we would like to encourage more PSAC locals and committees to come out, show support and march together.

PSAC/UPCE Local 20095 members are holding their second round of bargaining with Purolator Inc. this week, beginning June 24th.

This time, members are showing their solidarity and support by wearing "I support my bargaining team" stickers and temporary tattoos all week.
