PSAC-SSO joint statement on pay equity calculations

Concerns have been raised over pay equity settlement payment calculations that were based on the number of hours worked and do not include paid leave, overtime rates, and designated paid holidays.

Given that this issue affects the general implementation of the settlement between Statistical Survey Operations and the Public Service Alliance of Canada, the parties continue to work together to resolve this issue in a manner that will apply to all eligible employees.

As discussions are underway, employees do not need to raise this matter through the Dispute Resolution Process. Those who believe that there may be an error in their payment unrelated to this issue should submit an appeal in writing to Statistical Survey Operations.

In the meantime, Statistics Canada will continue to gather information and process the payments. Rest assured, once a decision has been reached, we will communicate the outcome to all those affected.

If you have any questions, or for more information, please contact SSO Pay Equity / OES Équité salariale.
