Sisters and Brothers,
National Public Service Week (NPSW) will be held June 11-17, 2017. The event marks the importance of federal public service employees and to recognizes their service to Canadians. Because the employer cannot pay its employees on time and accurately, we are asking our members to boycott NPSW.
PSAC members proudly serve Canadians on a daily basis. Our members deserve more than a piece of cake - if the employer wants to show their recognition for our members' valuable work; they should do that by paying them in full and on time.
Sisters and Brothers,
Please find below a template letter that was sent to all 32 Liberal MPs in the Atlantic Region in regards to the Phoenix Pay System.

Establishment of Asian Heritage Month
Asian Heritage Month was first officially recognized in December 2001, when the Canadian Senate adopted the month of May as Asian Heritage Month. This is an opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate the long and diverse history of Asian Canadians and their contributions to Canada, as well as the many struggles they face.
