The next federal election is scheduled for October 19, 2015. This will be a monumental election for PSAC members, the entire labour movement and all Canadians. The outcome will have a lasting impact on this country, especially if the blatantly anti-worker, anti-labour Conservative government is re-elected. To act as a reminder of this, we are calling on members to mark the 19th of each month with actions in their workplaces and locals.
March 19 will be a major, cross-country event, with many of the National Joint Council unions committing to participate and stand together for healthy workplaces. We’re taking a stand against a government and employer that has contributed to our toxic workplaces and, to make matters worse, is now proposing a “go to work sick” plan.
Together, our unions are proposing measures to fix the toxic workplaces that contribute to illness and mental health issues. We are also identifying the gaps where public service employees no longer have the tools and resources they need to serve Canadians. Let’s demonstrate the solidarity and strength of PSAC.
