Canada’s unions are welcoming the federal government’s announcement that it will appoint an ombudsperson to ensure Canadian corporations respect their human rights obligations abroad.

The Federal Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board is scheduled to meet with PSAC and the federal government on January 31, 2018.
The government has extended the deadline for reporting overpayments to January 19, 2018. PSAC remains unsatisfied with this half-measure and will continue to push for a full exemption from repaying the gross pay for all employees who received an overpayment due to Phoenix.
PSAC shares the scepticism and frustration of our members as a result of the continuous blunders on the part of this government when it comes to payroll problems. That said, PSAC encourages our members to make every effort to report any overpayments by January 19, 2018 to avoid having to repay the gross amount.
On November 10, 2017, after two years of negotiations, our bargaining team finally reached a tentative agreement with CFIA. Our bargaining team unanimously recommends ratification of our new agreement.
Our team hoped to be back at the bargaining table in December to put the MOU into effect and to reach a tentative agreement before year end. Despite their efforts, no dates were confirmed for the remaining days of 2017.
PSAC is unsatisfied with this half-measure and will continue to push for a full exemption from repaying the gross pay for all employees who received an overpayment due to Phoenix.
