The Public Service Alliance of Canada is one of Canada’s largest unions representing 17 components across Canada. More commonly referred to as PSAC, our 200,000 members are employed with Federal and provincial departments, agencies, and the private sector.
Our component, the Union of Taxation Employees, is known as UTE. We are currently PSAC’s largest component with more than 27,000 members in Revenue Collections, Client Services, Appeals, and some parts of Audit. We are Local 00048, representing 700 employees of the Canada Revenue Agency at the Toronto North Tax Services Office and the Toronto East Business Enquiries Call Center.
We exist to maintain and advance the workplace rights of our members – a big task in today’s federal public service! It’s a job we take very seriously. Our Local strongly believes in fostering a constructive relationship with management, however, we’re aggressive in protecting our members’ interests – from the office floor to Parliament Hill.
Making A Difference
The CAS Can Do It Campaign is our biggest push to replace the failed Phoenix pay system. The goal is to have CRA pay its employees directly from the CAS system, rather than the failed Phoenix pay system. Our members participated in this national effort that resulted in 15,000 cards being delivered to the Prime Minister's office.
My Contract, My Voice!
Our bargaining team will resume talks with CRA’s team from December 3rd to 6th, 2018.
As you know, negotiations are not going as quickly and smoothly as we would like. In fact, negotiations are hardly making any progress! This situation is totally unacceptable! That's why we're asking all members to show support for the bargaining team by placing the "My Contract My Voice" posters in a visible place in your work area. We will communicate any new mobilization efforts to you. In the meantime please display the posters.
