On December 19, 2017, in front of the offices of the Canada Border Services Agency, in Regina, CIU & PSAC members rallied for fairness and in solidarity with all FB members. After 3.5 years of bargaining, the employer is still pushing for concessions that devalues the work our members perform on behalf of all Canadians, and continues to refuse to provide parity with other law enforcement agencies.
The demonstrators had a clear message for Minister of Public Safety Ralph Goodale: Enough is enough – it is time to treat FB members with respect.
Present at the rally were members and representatives of CIU SK 40031, PSAC Regina Area Council Committee, DCL 40005, USGE, UNE, and CEIU, including: Brea Lewis, Branch President of CIU Saskatchewan 40031 and FB bargaining team member, Marianne Hladun, Regional Executive Vice-President of the PSAC Prairie Region, and Santa Claus.
