To keep up to date on the latest bargaining news check out the PS Let's Talk Blog, the link is at the top of this page. The regional and provincial bargaining conferences have taken place, check out the FAQ/Info section to become familiar with the team who will be representing you at the bargaining table! This group of dedicated union members from across the province have a difficult task ahead of them as they fight to keep our public services. The Region 4 representatives are Daryl O'Grady, Local 456 and Cam Jay, Local 468. As we move through the negotiation process it will be imperative that all of our members become informed and engaged in the process to show our support to the bargaining team.
