FB Ratification votes to be held June 20 to July 4

June 14, 2024

Ratification votes for PSAC-CIU members working at the Canada Border Services Agency will begin June 20 and end July 4 at 12 p.m. ET.

In order for FB members to receive their new rates of pay, retroactive pay, and lump sum payment, the new agreement must first be ratified. To ensure this ratification process is done as quickly as possible, PSAC will be conducting an online ratification process.

The ratification vote will be conducted using the same online voting platform used for strike votes earlier this year.

How to vote

PSAC will be holding mandatory virtual information sessions, and you can vote at any time after attending a session up until the voting deadline July 4 at 12 p.m. ET.

Ensure you are a Member in Good Standing. If you are on an extended leave (parental, disability, etc.), you can request to maintain good status while on leave prior to the vote.

Check your email: All FB group members will have received an email from communications@psac-afpc.vote on June 14 with the link to PSAC’s voting platform and the credentials needed to log in. If we only have your home address on file, your voting credentials will have been mailed to you.

If you did not receive an email on June 14, check your junk mail or other folders in your personal email account. If you’ve checked those folders and still don’t have the email, or if we don’t have your personal email on file, you can fill out a PSAC membership form to update your contact information.

Once you submit the online membership form, PSAC will issue your voting credentials to you as soon as possible.

Participate in a mandatory information session: Upon receipt of your login credentials, please proceed to register for voting sessions using the online voting platform link.

Submit your vote: Once you attend a mandatory information session, you will then be provided with a link to vote. Following the information session, you can vote immediately or stay on to participate in a live Q&A session with members of the FB bargaining team.
