Why the Purple Ribbon?

Wear a purple ribbon to demonstrate that we are all affected by the cuts, and we oppose them. 

It’s an expression of solidarity with affected PSAC members and with all Canadians affected by the cuts to services and programs.


BECAUSE thousands of PSAC members employed by the federal government are affected by the cuts to federal jobs and services;


BECAUSE the cuts are putting services, security and the economy of our country at risk;


BECAUSE members of the PSAC are willing to stand up and fight back against the federal government’s attacks;


The PSAC is asking our members to wear the purple ribbon to denounce the cuts and the way in which they are being implemented.  


We deserve better!  Let’s show it!


Ribbons are available at the PSAC Ottawa & Gatineau regional offices.
