The Saskatchewan provincial election is scheduled for April 4, 2016 and the Manitoba provincial election is scheduled for April 19, 2016.
PSAC Area Councils have already begun planning mobilization efforts and actions around provincial elections. To get involved, please contact the PSAC regional office closest to you to be added to the e-mail list and find out about upcoming meetings.
As important as the federal election was to our members who work for the federal government and agencies, we have many members in both provinces under provincial jurisdiction and there is a definite threat to these members from right wing governments.
We need to coordinate activities to ensure that our members are aware of the issues, the impact of the various parties on our members, the impact to ALL members who reside in both provinces and to ensure that our members get out to vote.
We will also be participating in the Federation of Labour campaigns in both provinces, including the Own It! Campaign from the Saskatchewan Federation of Labour and the Working Families Manitoba Campaign from the Manitoba Federation of Labour. Visit their websites for more information on these important campaigns.
