PSAC Policies

The Public Service Alliance of Canada has developed numerous policy statements on issues of concern to our members. These policies provide direction to our union in bargaining, in our internal operation and in matters relating to our role in the Canadian labour movement. 

In 1980, fifty thousand federal clerks took their demand for fair wages into the streets. This was one of the largest strike actions ever launched in Canada. What was perhaps more remarkable at the time was that fully three quarters of the clerks were women. We came from every Component of the Alliance. We were older women, younger women, francophones, anglophones, lesbians, women with disabilities, aboriginal women and women of colour. Women of all races and backgrounds struggling collectively for the first time for recognition of the worth of our work.
