May 1: Standing Together For Public Services, Standing Together For Fairness

Apr 9, 2014 •

On May 1st PSAC members across BC will congregate outside of their worksites and hold signs that say "Standing Together for Public Services, Standing Together for Fairness”.

It’s time to send a message to the government: We are united, ready and committed to defending our collective agreements, public services, and our working conditions.

Why? Because we know this government is determined to try to take away as many of our negotiated benefits as possible.  That’s the example they’re setting.
