Public Service Week does not make up for years of service and job cuts

After years of service cuts, job cuts and disrespect for hard working public servants, the federal government will hold National Public Service Week from June 15 to 21, 2014, to mark the importance of federal public service employees and to recognize their service to Canadian society.
It is an insult to our members that the government of Canada, as the employer, celebrates this event while it continues its assault on federal public services and public service workers.  It continues to cut services to the Canadian public, slash public-service jobs and attack collective bargaining rights, health and safety protections and retirement security.
PSAC boycotts Public Service Week; holds events defending public services instead
The PSAC is boycotting National Public Service Week and will be organizing events across the country to celebrate the work our members do to serve Canadians. We will use these opportunities to raise awareness about how the cuts by this government are affecting all Canadians.  
We urge all our members to check with their regional office or Component for information on activities during that week.
