Public Service Alliance of Canada members across Canada are taking action February 28 to mark the second anniversary of the disastrous Phoenix pay system.

The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) is encouraged by the funding commitment for Phoenix in this budget. However, the budget does not include an exemption from paying back the gross amount for overpayments in 2017. Our members complied with this government’s instructions to report overpayments by January 19 and yet thousands of members will still need to pay back the gross because of the government’s inability to process their reports.
