PSAC in the NCR, in partnership with UNE, GSU, UCTE, UJSE and AGR, are campaigning to address several urgent health and safety issues in Terrasses de la Chaudière. As part of the first phase of our campaign, we’ve notified all department management in the complex and have yet to hear a substantial response.
We are organizing to address overcrowding, air quality, physical symptoms reported by workers (headaches, dizziness, increased fatigue and more) and new reports of legionella as recently as April 8, 2019 (French only article).
What we want:
- A preliminary meeting with department deputy ministers and assistant deputy ministers in each department
- A report from each department on how these issues and other related issues are being addressed, and will be resolved
- A formal joint interdepartmental committee across the complex (representatives from each building) that would include relevant labour representatives to ensure that information sharing, actions and follow-ups are being addressed in a timely fashion.
