PSAC-Quebec represents members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada in Quebec, except those in the Outaouais region. It is also affiliated to the Fédération des travailleurs et travailleuses du Québec (FTQ), Quebec’s largest central labour body, which now counts more than 600,000 members in all economic sectors across the province.
Founded in 1995, PSAC-Quebec has adopted political positions at its Triennial Conventions. At 40,000 members strong, PSAC-Quebec plays a prominent role in the provincial political arena and focuses on networking and solidarity to promote education, mobilization and targeted political action.
The Quebec Council – PSAC-Quebec’s executive – includes the Regional Executive Vice-President, the Alternate Regional Executive Vice-President and representatives from all eight areas of Quebec. It also brings together representatives for women, equity groups, young activists, directly chartered locals and university sector locals. We are proud to be representative and inclusive!
The Public Service Alliance of Canada is one of the largest unions in the country. Most of its members are federal public service workers, but the union also represents workers in many other areas including airports, universities and Indigenous communities.
