For the first time in PSAC’s history, representatives of every bargaining unit of university workers were invited to take part in a university roundtable, which took place in Ottawa from March 25 to 27. The university sector membership of the union has been growing in recent years, and now includes over 23,000 members in 57 bargaining units across Canada.
