PSAC 'to use more measures' than just strike negotiations
The Public Service Alliance of Canada will look to use a better public relations campaign.
The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) has said it may consider industrial action if the government tries to restrict labour rights.
John Gordon, national president of the PSAC, told Bloomberg his group will try to be more "strategic" in the measures it adopts.
"We have to focus much more attention on the politics of it rather than action and the traditional labour way," he added.
Instead of getting workers to go to the picket line every time there is a dispute, union bargaining and a better public relations campaign will be used, Mr Gordon stated.
The specialist - whose organisation represents 18,000 workers - said prime minister Stephen Harper has made it clear he plans to introduce cuts to the federal budget.
It comes after PASC observed the recent sale of Atomic Energy of Canada will lead to further job losses, with some 800 to 900 high-paying roles to disappear.
