How to Join PSAC

Contact us. We’ll discuss starting a union at your workplace and the improvements having a union can bring you and your coworkers.

Once all your questions are answered and you’ve decided to pursue joining the PSAC you will work with a PSAC Organizer to develop a plan – including getting others involved and having them sign union membership cards.

Once a majority of your co-workers have signed membership cards, PSAC will ask the appropriate labour board – federal or provincial – for right to represent you – to be your the bargaining agent for you and your coworkers.

Once certified, we will work with you to set up a local. This means adopting bylaws that say how decisions are made, choosing a team who will negotiate a collective agreement with your employer then we will start bargaining a first agreement. For the first time you will have a role to play in determining your pay and benefits and working conditions.
