BARGAINING UPDATES

There are no changes to report and the most current information for members can be found on the PSAC website.

RAND MEMBERS

There is approximately 12% of our membership who have not signed union cards. Please self-identify yourself to one of the executive members and we can provide you with a union card or if you know of a new employee who has not signed a card, please reach out to them and make them aware. The Executive plans to identify and reach out members so that we can reduce the number of RAND members significantly.

PHOENIX PAY SYSTEM

It is important for all the membership to complete the Phoenix training to understand the system’s impact and what will be required of them. Upon completion of the training, it is recommended to print the last page of the course and evaluation to have proof of completion. Many people are having issues with the course correctly identifying them as having completed the training.

Once the system is online, we would like any members who have a problem with their pay to advise someone in the Executive of the problem. Please provide your name, type of issue and date(s) of occurrence.

LABOUR DAY EVENT

The Renfrew District Labour Council is organizing the event for Monday, September 5 at the Pembroke Marina. All in the membership and their families are invited to attend.

NATIONAL DAY OF MOURNING

UNDE 629 will lay a wreath at the Monument of Fallen Workers near the outside chapel at the Pembroke Marina on Thursday, April 28 at 6:15pm. All members are encouraged to attend.
