PSAC Statement on Harassment:
Our union is made strong by working together to improve our working lives and to preserve the rights that we have struggled to achieve.  Mutual respect is the cornerstone of this cooperation.  The PSAC Constitution states that every member is entitled to be free from discrimination and harassment, both in the union and at the workplace, on the basis of age, sex, colour, national or ethnic origin, race, religion, marital status, family status, criminal record, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, language, social and economic class or political belief.  Members are also entitled to be free from personal harassment.

If you experience harassment at this event contact, Tracy Thor PSAC Regional Representative to the WRWC, to discuss the situation and possible responses.  Our initial approach is to encourage early and informal resolution and to facilitate our members speaking directly with one another to resolve the matter.  If this is not successful or possible, the Constitutional and policy mandates on the issue of harassment will be fully and quickly enforced.

Harassment in all its forms, detracts from our common purpose and weakens our union.  Let each one of us, as we work together on the important task at hand, treat each other with dignity and respect.
