One year after its launch, the Phoenix pay system is still not working.
Thousands of public service workers have been paid incorrectly or not at all. Many more worry every pay day if they will be the next victim of the Phoenix debacle. It is also putting excessive stress on the employees who process pay under the new system.
The federal government is responsible for making sure that public service workers’ pay is accurate, and arrives on time.
We encourage our members and all public service workers to take action by sending a letter to the Prime Minister urgently calling for the Phoenix pay system to be fixed.
