Stepping Up to a Larger Union Stage, 2010-19
From: Leading Progess
In this chapter, Russell explores how PIPSC dealt with issues and opportunities as it approached its hundred-year aniversary. PIPSC members confronted the Harper government’s muzzling of public servants, the lingering impact of the Great Recession of 2008, the disasterous Pheonix payroll system, and structural changes to the national job market.
