Political Action

Our union, along with concerned Canadians in communities across the country, has been working hard to save public services and protect jobs. We are all affected by cuts to services, and we must all take action to defend the public services PSAC members provide to Canadians.

Friends, Sisters, Brothers, Local Presidents and Executive members, I encourage you to consider affiliating your Local to the District Labour Council (DLC) in your area.

"Robyn, when I say Phoenix to you, what's the first thing that comes to mind?" "Debacle! Debacle comes to mind." Thousands of workers have experienced pay problems - under payment, late payment, and in some cases no pay at all - because of Phoenix, the new payroll system the federal government introduced in 2016. We sat down with Robyn Benson, the Public Service Alliance of Canada's National President, for a frank discussion about PSAC's response to the Phoenix debacle. Here's the video.
