March 19th Day of Action: AJC Joins other Federal Public Sector Unions to Promote Healthy Workplaces

This event is led by PSAC and we encourage AJC members to join any local rally or event in their respective regions.

The AJC has joined other federal public sector unions for 'Together for Healthy Workplaces' event, a Day of Action to be held on Wednesday, March 19th.

This event is led by PSAC and we encourage AJC members to join any local rally or event in their respective regions.  

As bargaining agents negotiate with Treasury Board, the goal of this action is to promote healthy workplaces and to show your support for federal public service employees and the unions that represent them.

We face a tough bargaining landscape, as you probably know.  Bill C-4 has brought drastic changes to the Public Service Labour Relations Act.   The AJC has lost its right to arbitration, forcing us to consider strike action in the event of an impasse.  On top of all this, the government has lost sight of what truly is workplace wellness and intends to cut sick leave to the bone rather than focus on prevention and support.
 
The public service bargaining agents are proposing proactive measures that promote health and wellness in the workplace with a greater focus on prevention and support.  There is sufficient data and evidence to support the bargaining agents' proposals, contrary to the government's sick leave initiatives which are not backed by science or reliable evidence.  

AJC members who are interested can download the following material: flyer promoting the event, a flyer to distribute and a poster/picket sign.

Please get involved in support of your fellow employees and a healthier and more proactive workplace.

We will share more details about rallies and other events to be held in different regions on March 19th as they become available.
