The Public Service Alliance of Canada represents 123,856 federal public service workers under the Treasury Board of Canada in every province and territory in the country. Our hard-working members provide the backbone of Canada's public services – protecting our borders, providing vital social services and ensuring our vast lands and oceans are safe and sustainable.
Collective bargaining is how the union (the bargaining agent) and management come up with the terms and conditions of employment for the workers involved (the bargaining unit). Provincial or federal labour legislation sets out rules for how these negotiations take place and how disputes are handled.
Each bargaining agent also has rules about how they negotiate on behalf of their members:
- how the member input is gathered,
- how decisions are made about bargaining proposals,
- who does the bargaining.
PSAC's rules are set out in Regulation 15 of our Constitution.
