Public Service Week 2013 runs from June 9-15. Doug Marshall, President of the Union of National Employees (our component) wrote this message:
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
As you may have read on the PSAC website, PSAC President Robyn Benson has invited us to boycott Public Service Week – and with good reason!
We’ve seen our brothers and sisters in tears after getting surplus letters. We’ve seen entire programs – programs that are important to Canadians – shut down. We’ve had our hard work called “redundant”.
I think we speak for most public service employees when we say: Thanks, but no thanks. We’re in no mood to celebrate!
This National Public Service Week, ditch the employer barbecue and join PSAC in protest of the government’s actions.
As a Local, there are many things you can do to take part in this event. Some events being organized include: solidarity gatherings, meetings, barbecues and letter-writing campaigns.
Be sure to check your regional PSAC website for more information on what’s happening in your region!
