Questions and answers about the Phoenix pay system. UPDATED October 12, 2017
February 23, 2017
This is a very sad anniversary for public service workers. A year ago, the Liberal government began its rollout of Phoenix, the consolidated payroll system for the federal public service. Since then, thousands of workers have been paid incorrectly or, in some cases, not at all. This has caused financial hardship and stress for these workers. And many more worry every pay day if they will be the next victim of the Phoenix debacle.

As a result of legal action from PSAC and 12 other unions representing federal government employees, the Liberal government must work with the unions to resolve the Phoenix debacle.  The court order requiring the government to fix Phoenix, and help employees who have faced hardships because of the pay system’s failures, is now available online.

PSAC, along with 13 other bargaining agents representing federal government employees, now have an order from the Federal Court outlining obligations the employer must meet as it works towards a resolution of the Phoenix debacle.  Included in the court order is better access to help for people on disability, maternity, and parental leave. It also requires the employer, the federal government, to maintain the staffing resources necessary to resolve the on-going pay problems.

As the deadline to clear the 80,000 case backlog passes, public sector workers are left with more questions than answers about the Phoenix pay system. While the government acknowledged earlier this month that they would not meet the October 31 deadline, it is unacceptable that a clear plan to fix Phoenix has yet to be articulated.
