November 20 is the annual Trans Day of Remembrance, a day dedicated to transgender, transsexual, and two-spirit individuals who have been killed or have been victims of violent attacks based on anti-transgender hatred or prejudice.

Dear PSAC Young Workers:Do you want a forum to discuss the impact of current issues on young workers? Are you interested in getting together to build solidarity, share knowledge and develop skills? As young workers, we face the same issues other Canadian workers face, as well as some that are unique to our demographic.

Have you ever been asked, “What has the union done for us?” As union activists, we know how much we benefit from our collective agreements, but not everyone knows how much we’ve fought for and the gains we’ve made in the past.Based on feedback and suggestions from PSAC members and local leaders across the Prairies, we’re moving forward with a video project to put faces to our members and give an outlet to share our stories and successes from the past. This will be an important resource for us to help all members learn about our history and build solidarity.
