How to Join PSAC

  • Contact us. We’ll discuss starting a union at your workplace and the improvements having a union can bring you and your coworkers.

  • Once all your questions are answered and you’ve decided to pursue joining the PSAC you will work with a PSAC Organizer to develop a plan - including getting others involved and having them sign union membership cards.

  • Once a majority of your co-workers have signed membership cards, PSAC will ask the appropriate labour board - federal or provincial - for right to represent you - to be your the bargaining agent for you and your coworkers.

  • Once certified, we will work with you to set up a local. This means adopting bylaws that say how decisions are made, choosing a team who will negotiate a collective agreement with your employer then we will start bargaining a first agreement. For the first time you will have a role to play in determining your pay and benefits and working conditions.
