WINNIPEG – The union representing Port of Churchill workers is increasingly frustrated with inaction from provincial and federal governments following the Port’s seasonal closure, and is calling for the immediate creation of a federal Employment Insurance zone.

The following is a joint-press release issued by the Public Service Alliance of Canada-Prairie Region and the Union of Canadian Transportation Employees (UCTE) on July 26, 2016.

***Rescheduled to August 23, 2016***
**Agenda Amended August 15, 2016**
The Edmonton Area Council would like to invite all PSAC members to join them at their next meeting

We are deeply concerned by the ongoing forest fire in Fort McMurray, Alberta. There are no reported deaths or major injuries as of this moment. We have communicated with elected PSAC union representatives in the region to check on the safety of our members in the area.

A new report released today details the significant impacts the Harper Conservatives inflicted on the prairies while in power.
