08 June 2016 – Day of Action

Dear Colleagues 🙂
On June 8, PSAC members across Canada, including Local 613, will hold a day of action to show our support for the bargaining unit.

The course of collective bargaining for the entire federal public sector will be set when our Treasury Board bargaining teams are back at the bargaining table on June 18.

The new Liberal government has so far refused to move away from the previous Conservative government’s proposals to replace our negotiated sick leave with a short-term disability plan. The Treasury Board’s negotiators are sticking with the 0.5% per-year wage increase proposal tabled by the Conservative government.

To make matters worse, the Liberal government has failed to restore fair collective bargaining by refusing to repeal the unfair labour laws passed by the Conservatives.

The Liberal government promised public service employees a new era of respect, including a new approach to collective bargaining. By joining the action of your local on June 8, you can help send the message that we expect the Liberals to honour their word.

Below are signs that you can post on your office baffold to show your support.
