Thousands of PSAC members across the country send a clear message to the government: bargain fairly

Thousands of PSAC members across Canada working for Treasury Board, Parks Canada, Canada Revenue Agency and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency sent a clear message to the federal government: they expect a fair approach to contract negotiations when returning to the bargaining table this month.

Members demonstrated in front of government buildings, MPs offices and on the streets. Social media was abuzz with pictures of these actions.

“Our members came out in force across the country to support our bargaining teams and send a clear message,” said PSAC president Robyn Benson. “They deserve respect at the bargaining table.”

“I am so impressed by the diverse and creative actions our members took and want to sincerely thank them for taking time out of their busy day to take action.”

“Now is the time for the government to listen and negotiate a fair collective agreement with them,” concluded Benson.

Below are photos from the June 8 events across Canada.
