Fighting for change in my workplace and my community


We all have a role to play in ensuring our workplaces are supportive of everyone. Many people who are trans (have a gender identity that differs from the sex they were assigned at birth) and/or non-binary (do not identify with a binary gender of man or woman) experience harassment, discrimination and exclusion in the workplace.

Please see our guide and tips for trans-inclusive workplaces.

Members Weigh in on PSAC’s Proposal to Treasury Board for a 3.75% Wage Increase


Greg McGillis, REVP for the PSAC-NCR:

"This is a reasonable demand for public servants who have waited too long, suffered courageously and still face uncertainty. No amount could make up for the negligence of the employer in implementing Phoenix. But a fair wage package is a start toward healing and the acknowledgement.”


What a 3.75% wage increase would mean to me…

2019 is around the corner...
