PSAC will hold multi-local meetings at regional offices throughout May and June to provide information on collective bargaining and strategies, which include:
- Defend collective agreements – say no to contract concessions and win decent working conditions for members
- Defend public services.
- Build opposition to the Harper Conservative government and work towards its defeat in the next federal election
These member meetings will be an opportunity to speak up and get involved in protecting what you have. During the meetings we will be asking for feedback on how members can participate in the fight back and what they need to do.
All members from all employers are invited to attend and provide feedback in the ongoing fight back and share ideas for what we can do together to combat concessions and cuts to public services.
For members outside of the regional office areas, we will host an online webinar to deliver the same messaging and allow for a two-way conversation.
We will also be using the webinar format to reach members across the region on an ongoing basis. These webinars will provide educational opportunities on important issues and ensure we maintain the momentum from our meetings throughout bargaining and into the 2015 federal election.
Members tell us they are interested in engaging with their union, but need it to be accessible and convenient. Webinars and telephone town halls suit these needs and allow us to reach more members throughout the Prairies.
