Canada’s nurses stand in solidarity with federal public service workers in their fight for a fair collective agreement.
“What federal public sector workers are asking for isn’t unreasonable: fair wages that keep pace with inflation and training to build a more inclusive public service,” said Linda Silas, President of the Canadian Federation of Nurses Unions (CFNU). “Their message to the Treasury Board and Canada Revenue Agency is simple – they won’t be taken for granted, they won’t fall further behind, and they won’t back down.”
For over two years, Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) members have been working in good faith without a contract while negotiations have been ongoing. Now, more than 155,000 Public Service Alliance of Canada members are in a strike position – setting the stage for one of the largest strikes in Canada’s history.
The CFNU urges the federal government to ensure public service workers have the fair deal they deserve.
