Public Services International, the global alliance of public sector workers, will be holding its 27th World Congress in Canada this September.
More than 1,000 delegates from five continents will gather in Ottawa to adopt a program of action for the next five years and to launch global campaigns in support of quality public services and pay equity.
The program of action has four key themes: public sector workers and their work; winning workers’ rights; union development and international solidarity; and equality, equity and diversity.
The Congress will be held at the Ottawa Congress Centre from September 2 to 6.
Each affiliate is allowed only a limited number of delegates, but CUPE locals, divisions and councils that wish to participate as observers are welcome. To register as an observer, contact Gisl0065 Dupuis at 613 237 1590 ext. 220. Observers must cover their own costs.
PSI represents more than 20 million workers organized in 598 unions in 146 countries. The Canadian members of PSI are CUPE, NUPGE, PSAC and SEIU.
