Engaging members and Health & Safety updates.

We have all been isolated for many months and this is an opportunity to connect in activism spirit and great discussions about our union, as we hopefully move out of the pandemic.

PSAC History

The Public Service Alliance of Canada has a rich history of struggles and triumphs.  Precedent setting law has emerged from PSAC activists.  Human Rights gains have been made by PSAC actions.  As one of the largest unions the PSAC has made a mark in Canadian history.  Discover the ground breakers in that history!

Mobilizing and Engaging Membership – a Discussion

A favourite topic of discussion amongst union activists is ‘engaging membership.’  What does this mean?

Who is engaging whom?  How are we reaching out to union members?  What do members want to be engaged in?  Let’s have the discussion.

Unions + Politics + Social Justice – Is there a Link?

Many members are engaged in great work in their communities, with nonprofit organizations and politically.  Much of the passion and dedication comes from the same place – a caring for people and their environments.   How do we make the link between union values, social justice goals and political engagement?

New to PSAC – Welcome to your Union

Even the name – Public Service Alliance of Canada – doesn’t encompass all that the PSAC stands for.

Did you know there are diamond miners in the North, cow herders in Ottawa, and half-way house workers in the Atlantic.  Learn about the structure of the PSAC and how you are a part of one of the largest unions in Canada.

Connecting Labour Organizations to Union Members’ Lives

There are many Labour Organizations at the national, provincial, and municipal level that work hard to improve the lives of workers and their communities.  In understanding their roles and the campaigns they are engaged in workers can engage to make their lives better.

Registration Deadline:  Nov 8, 2021

Canadian Union of Labour Employees (CULE) Unit II

I would like to begin by acknowledging that we are on the traditional lands, referred to as Treaty 6 Territory and that the City of (Saskatoon/ Prince Albert/North Battleford/Lloydminster/Meadow Lake) and all the people here are beneficiaries of these treaties of land and title.  

Treaty 6 encompasses the traditional territories of numerous First Nations, including Cree, Dene

(DEN-Ē), Nakota, Saulteaux (SO-TO), and Ojibwe (OJIB-WĒ) and the homeland of the Métis Nation.
