The Canadian Association of Professional Employees (CAPE) expresses its full solidarity with Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) members who have overwhelmingly voted to strike. This includes the earlier vote of 35,000 CRA members, and today’s announcement of the 120,000 members in the Treasury Board group that PSAC represents. CAPE recognizes that PSAC members have been working faithfully without a contract since 2021 and that their proposals around key issues, including fair cost of living adjustments and flexibility regarding telework, have not been satisfactorily addressed through the collective bargaining process.
In solidarity, CAPE leadership, including Local leaders, would suspend participation in labour management consultation committees (LMCC) for the duration of the PSAC strike to avoid crossing picket lines, including virtual ones.

No CAPE bargaining units are in a legal strike position and members will continue to serve Canadians through any strike action.
CAPE members who have questions or concerns about the PSAC strike can consult the CAPE website for more information about their rights and responsibilities.
