Our democracy deserves a fair voting system. Every vote must count. The current “winner-take-all” voting system contradicts the fundamental democratic rights of being fairly represented in federal and provincial/territorial legislatures.

  For almost two years PSAC members have been struggling with pay issues under the Phoenix pay system such as: no pay, incorrect pay, late pay as well as delays in providing emergency pay.  This has created financial and emotional hardships for many of our members. PSAC members across the country will be taking action to highlight the ongoing pay issues and pressure the federal government to address PSAC’s demands.
