PSAC-UCTE members who work for Transport Canada have critical responsibilities to ensure the safety of Canadians as people and goods move across the country, on land, at sea, and in the air.  Our members take pride in their work, making sure that transportation safety standards are met. We are therefore very concerned that Transport Canada plans on contracting out some of this important work. This will include privatizing the testing required to license commercial pilots and aircraft maintenance engineers.
