Talking Union Basics

The Talking Union Basics provides answers to these questions and much more. You will learn more about your collective agreement, your employee rights and your rights as a member of the PSAC. You will explore the many opportunities to be active in the union and how to help build strong locals in the Prairie region. It is recommended that members take Talking Union Basics or the “Our Communities, Our Union, Our Rights (for Aboriginal, Inuit and Metis members) course as they provide a solid foundation for other PSAC courses.
