Disability Rights

PSAC has fought for disability rights for many years, from the fight to bring about employment equity in the federal public sector in the 1980s and 1990s, to the struggle to advance accessibility and the duty to accommodate both within workplaces and within our union.

The struggle for a society and workplaces that recognize and encourage the full participation of all people of different abilities is far from over. Confronting discrimination and harassment at work, protecting benefits such as sick leave and disability insurance, and continuing to advance employment equity are some of the key issues that PSAC has been focusing on.
