CAUT in solidarity with striking PSAC workers

(Ottawa – April 20, 2023) The Canadian Association of University Teachers (CAUT) voted unanimously to support striking members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC). During its 94th Council meeting, CAUT member associations passed an emergency motion to stand with PSAC workers seeking fair working conditions and fair pay.

“We urge the government to negotiate a deal that addresses the concerns members have about job security, good working conditions and inclusive workplaces,” said CAUT executive director David Robinson. “These critical government workers deserve our respect.”

PSAC is Canada’s largest federal public service union, representing nearly 230,000 workers in every province and territory in Canada, including more than 120,000 federal public service workers employed by the Treasury Board, and more than 35,000 employed by the Canada Revenue Agency.
