The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) holds a strike mandate for 120,000 government workers that includes about 3,000 employees working in agriculture-related positions. Negotiations are continuing and PSAC representatives will update the bargaining process on Monday. Other PSAC members in a strike position include programs and administrative services, operational services, technical services and education and library science. Most vessel inspection services are deemed essential and fall in other bargaining units that may in the near future hold their own strike vote. Minimal disruption is anticipated should picket lines go up.
