Public Service Alliance of Canada Wall Exhibit

Check out our latest permanent wall exhibit located at 233 Gilmour Street in Ottawa. This was a collaboration with the PSAC, Chapter One Studio for the design and the Workers’ History Museum.

The exhibit is made up of 100 photos showing a variety of the jobs carried out over the last 50 years by Public Service Alliance of Canada members from coast to coast to coast. Also included are photos of some major strikes that helped create the direction that the PSAC moved forward, such as the Clerk and Regulatory (CR) strike in 1980, the general strike of 1991 plus a couple of other creative strikes. Pictures of three members that took their human rights struggles to the Human Rights Tribunal or the Supreme Court of Canada and won that saw rights and benefits then given across the country are highlighted too.

Most people view PSAC members as office government workers, but the reality is vastly different as you can see by the exhibit.
