This week is a very dark one for many PSAC members across the country. Thousands of members received notices from their departments advising them that they are "affected employees", or worse, under the WFA. In some cases members were advised that the section or organization that they are working for is shutting its doors.
The PSAC National Board of Directors is pleased to encourage and support active Regional Women’s Committees (RWC) throughout the country. As a focal point for mobilizing women members, the RWCs are essential to a strong union presence in the regions. They embody the spirit of grassroots organizing and membership participation.
The National Day of Action was a huge success with hundreds of members from worksites all over the Prairie Region standing together in solidarity over the noon hour. Check out details and photos from the various rally locations and worksite actions across Manitoba.
