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. 

How the Conservatives expanded the temporary worker pipeline

Mar 28, 2014 •

For decades, Canada has relied on migrant workers to help develop the economy. Many come through the government’s Temporary Foreign Worker Program (TFWP). This program was intended to fill very specific jobs on a short term basis—jobs that required workers and skills that did not exist in the country.  But since 2006, the Harper government has made it much easier for employers of all kinds to use migrant workers. It’s like they’ve built a pipeline that can be easily tapped into.
