Treasury Board ratification votes to be held May 24 to June 16

Ratification votes for PSAC members in the four Treasury Board groups will begin on May 24 and end on June 16 at noon ET.  

In order for PSAC members to receive their new rates of pay, retroactive pay, and lump sum payment, the new agreements must first be ratified. To ensure this ratification process is done as quickly as possible, PSAC will be conducting an expedited ratification process. 

The ratification votes will be conducted using the same online voting platform used for strike votes earlier this year. 

How to vote 

  1. Check your email: All PSAC members in the four Treasury Board groups will receive an email from on May 24 with the link to PSAC's voting platform and the credentials needed to log in. 

    If you do not receive an email on May 24, check your junk mail or promotions folders in your personal email account. If you’ve checked those folders and still don’t have the email, we may not have your personal email on file and you can fill out a PSAC membership form to update your contact information.

    Once you submit the online membership form, PSAC will issue your voting credentials to you as soon as possible.

  1. Watch the mandatory information session video: You are required to watch the mandatory information session video before voting. You can log into PSAC’s voting platform at any time during the voting period using the credentials emailed to you. The video cannot be skipped and must be played to the end before you will be permitted to vote. After you’ve watched the video, follow the on-screen instructions to vote. You can log into the voting platform to watch the information session video and cast your vote at any point between May 24 and June 16 at noon ET.
