The CLC Convention is being held from May 5-9, 2014 at the Palais des congrès in Montréal. As in previous years, the PSAC will be fully funding up to ten delegates to represent PSAC’s five equity groups: women, Aboriginal peoples, racially visible peoples, persons with disabilities and members of the LGBT communities.
The PSAC recognizes and celebrates the past and present contributions of Black people and people of African descent. We also acknowledge the discrimination, barriers and challenges that remain prevalent in Canada.
Despite centuries of positive contributions to Canada’s history, people of African descent are still absent in our history books and under-represented in our political and economic institutions and in union leadership.
To: PSAC members who have self-ID as being in an equity-seeking group, PSAC members thirty years of age and younger.
Per section 9 of the PSAC BC Regional Bylaws, we will be holding an election for delegates to represent equity-seeking groups (Members with a Disability, Aboriginal, Racially Visible, and GLBT) and Young Workers at the upcoming PSAC BC Regional Convention.
This is a call out to PSAC equity activists (Aboriginal Peoples, Racialized Workers, Gay/Lesbian/Bisexual/Trans Members, and Members with Disabilities), Regional Women's Committee members, and Young worker activists (30 or younger) to participate in the upcoming Treasury Board units and Parks National Bargaining Conferences
Members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada’s Victoria Regional Womens’ Committee have been working on a plan to erect a memorial to the victims of the École Polytechnique Massacre.
The Montreal Massacre, as it is also known, resulted in the deaths of 14 women on Dec. 6,1989. The anniversary of this tragic event is commemorated every year in Canada as the National Day of Remembrance and Action on Violence Against Women.
