The importance of member-to-member conversations

Last month, PSAC held leadership meetings across the country, including five in the Prairie Region. The purpose was to kick off the next phase of our We are ALL Affected campaign by taking it directly to our members. The meetings were meant to inform and train local presidents to organize and recruit others to hold one-to-one conversations with all their members. These conversations are designed to connect with members, hear their concerns and talk about the issues facing them and their union today.

Moving forward, the regional offices will hold campaigner training to equip members with the  tools needed to build stronger connections between members and our union. The purpose of these workshops is to explain the overall purpose and scope of the current campaign. These sessions will review specific information about the threats facing PSAC members as a result of budget cuts, threats to collective agreement provisions, and union security.

Training & Workshops:

*Please contact your regional office for more information, or to inquire about when a workshop will be held in your area.
