Hello Members across Canada and Washington DC, USA....the Group is now recruiting members to start new subgroups (or other union terminology called "Locals") in your work region.
We are now getting ready to sign the Collective Bargaining Agreement in August, then in the fall, we will be focusing on regions where we do not have an official subgroup. This mobilization and visibility initiative is an opportunity to get more members involved in organized labour relations, and to have your voice heard at the national level.
We are looking to create subgroups in Regions such as Quebec City, Halifax, Windsor, Southern Ontario, Kingston, Kitchener and Waterloo, in the province of Alberta, Calgary and Edmonton and also in Regina. And any other location where we have members, such as our PG's at PSPC in Washington DC, USA.
To all members where you are not in a subgroup, you are not forgotten and are indeed represented. You have a voice and we want to support you.
