Boycott National Public Service Week

Boycott National Public Service Week

The National Board of Directors of the PSAC has fully endorsed the boycott of activities being put on by the employer while our sisters and brothers are suffering the very dramatic impacts of work force adjustment.

Those of us who are not directly affected by the measures the employer has set in motion, owe it to our sisters and brothers who are directly affected to stand in solidarity with them. Actions of solidarity in the workplace will send a very strong message to our employers that we are not OK with what is happening.

These actions are part of the We Are All Affected. The boycott of NPSW activities in the workplace is an excellent opportunity to demonstrate how we feel and fight back against the ongoing attacks on public services and the workers who provide them.

To add fuel to the fire, Treasury Board president Tony Clement announced plans for sweeping changes to the way federal employees earn and use sick leave. This announcement came on the first day of National Public Service Week, with a public declaration that federal employees are abusing the system. Happy NPSW, indeed
