The government has announced that Royal Canadian Mounted Police Civilian Members will join the federal public service on May 21, 2020. The ‘deeming’ of RCMP CMs was initially scheduled for April, 2018 but was delayed because of ongoing problems with the Phoenix pay system. Acting RCMP Commissioner Daniel Dubeau believes the new deeming date will allow the government to stabilize Phoenix before RCMP CMs join the federal public service.

A Quebec judge has ruled that the grievance process available to unionized employees in the federal public service is well equipped to deal with the fallout of Phoenix pay problems. The judge certified a class action lawsuit against the Government of Canada for two groups of employees that don’t have access to the existing process: casuals and students.

As many as one in three PSAC members affected by Phoenix have incurred out-of-pocket expenses. When the Phoenix nightmare began, one of the first things PSAC did was secure a claims process for expenses incurred because of inaccurate pay. We encourage our members to claim these expenses. There is no deadline for submitting these claims. If you incurred expenses due to a pay problem in 2016 or 2017, you are still eligible to file. What is covered?

PSAC members from across Canada joined their Brothers and Sisters from CUPE Local 2424 on the picket line as staff at Carleton University fight to protect their retirement security.  PSAC raised more than $15,000 to support CUPE members and help them last one day longer than the employer.  More than 800 of Carleton’s administrative, technical and library staff have been on strike since March 5.  Sign CUPE 2424's petition letter today and help defend hard-working university staff at Carleton.

After two years of Phoenix pay problems, PSAC members continue to show up to work and deliver the services Canadians depend on. The least they deserve is a fair collective agreement that recognizes the value of their work and the importance of the services they provide to Canadians.

Young workers across Canada are turning controversy into opportunity by donating free Loblaw gift cards to charity. Loblaw recently admitted to fixing the price of bread at stores across the country for more than a decade, and the company announced it would offer $25 gift cards to all customers as an apology. PSAC’s Regional Young Worker Committees are shifting the price-fixing scandal into a way to help Canadians in need.
