VANCOUVER, March 27, 2012 /CNW/ - The Public Service Alliance of Canada, in conjunction with the Canadian Labour Congress, will host a Budget Watch when the federal budget comes down at 1PM on March 29th.
In conjunction with the Canadian Labour Congress, PSAC is calling on members to contact their Member of Parliament concerning Bill C-377. In its current form, Bill C-377 would be the most costly and discriminatory Bill faced by the labour movement across Canada in memory.
We ask that all members contact their local Member of Parliament - especially if the local MP is a Conservative - and voice opposition to the Bill C-377. For more information see below.
Every year on March 21st, the world commemorates the anniversary of the 1960 Sharpville massacre, which saw dozens of peaceful demonstrators shot by police in apartheid South Africa for protesting racially discriminatory laws. March 21 is a time to remember those who fought against racism and for equality and human rights.
TC Group members are in bargaining with Treasury Board now and we have an opportunity to make our concerns heard.
If you believe in strong health and safety protections for Canadians, send this letter to Tony Clement, President of the Treasury Board, to demonstrate that you value the workers providing these protections, and demand that your government value them too.
