The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) is issuing a call-out for equity group members to attend the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) National Bargaining Conference.

PSAC equity activists (Indigenous Peoples, racialized workers, LGBTQ2+ members, and members with disabilities), Regional Women's Committee (RWC) members, and young worker activists (35 years old or younger) are encouraged to apply.

The Union was scheduled to meet with Purolator July 18 to 20. It was our intention to try and reach a deal by the end of the session. Regrettably, it was a frustrating session and despite our best efforts to conclude an agreement with the Company we were unable to do so.

The BC Federation of Labour is hiring 3 Occupational Health & Safety (OHS) facilitator coordinators to work in the BCFED OHS Centre. This is a great opportunity for people who have OHS facilitating experience in subject areas, such as OHS committees, mental health, bullying and harassment, OHS supervisor training and /or building a psychologically healthy workplace. Please share the job posting with your members and networks. The posting closes 5:00 pm, August 17th.  The posting is attached. 

To PSAC Locals/Branches, Area Councils and Regional Committees in BC:

On behalf of the Mainland & Haida Gwaii Young Worker Committee, we would like to wish all PSAC members a very happy National Indigenous Peoples Day!

To mark the occasion, we are writing to share an important initiative - Soaring to Success - by a group of Indigenous workers that came out of the PSAC’s Introduction to the Union for Indigenous Members course.
