OTTAWA, Nov. 4, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - PSAC congratulates Scott Brison on his appointment as President of the Treasury Board Secretariat and looks forward to working with him to restore public services.
"The integrity of and respect for the public service was a central issue during the election campaign for our members and for Canadians who rely on the vital services our members provide," said Robyn Benson, National President of PSAC. "It is time to turn the page and rebuild trust."
"There is much work to be done in rebuilding labour-relations and we look forward to resuming free collective bargaining with the federal government, in the spirit of collaboration and mutual respect," added Benson.
PSAC was pleased to see that the new cabinet reflects gender parity for the first time in Canadian history. The union hopes to see the Liberal government move quickly to undo the damage done to human rights, including the unfair changes to federal pay equity legislation.
"We and all Canadians are looking to the Liberal government to fulfil its promises for greater social and economic equality and this includes moving fast to expand the Canada Pension Plan, restore Old Age Security, and put in place a national childcare program for all families."
"Canadians voted for change and we look forward to working with the new government to make that happen for all," concluded Benson.
