Contact us. We’ll discuss starting a union at your workplace and the improvements having a union can bring to your workplace.
- Once all your questions are answered and you’ve decided to pursue joining 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 the right to represent you — to be 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 explain how decisions are made and 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, benefits and working conditions.
Thanks for your interest in joining PSAC! Here is a step-by-step process for becoming part of our union.
