RCMP mechanics

The deeming of RCMP civilian members (CMs) has been delayed, but PSAC and USJE are still working hard to ensure CMs receive the full benefits of union membership until they officially join the federal public service.

RCMP Civilian Members (CMs), Union of Safety and Justice Employees (USJE) member champions and union representatives began mapping the way forward for integrating CMs into their future union at a training seminar in Ottawa January 9-10, 2018.

Acting Commissioner of the RCMP Daniel Dubeau announced on November 27 that the deeming of RCMP civilian members into the federal public service and the transfer to the Phoenix pay system has been put on hold until further notice.

RCMP civilian members should not be transferred to the federal payroll when they join the public service until the Phoenix pay system is fixed.

RCMP CM survey

We have created a 15-minute anonymous online survey for RCMP Civilian Members who are pay-matched in the PA, TC, EB and SV classifications. The survey will give you the opportunity to let us know what you would like to see brought forward in the next round of PSAC’s collective bargaining with Treasury Board.

A recent letter from the president of the Treasury Board to PSAC helps to clarify many of the outstanding issues related to the deeming of Civilian Members in the RCMP into the federal public service.

Pension plan

PSAC representatives met with Treasury Board to discuss the differences in the RCMP Superannuation Act and the Public Service Superannuation Act. 

October 5, 2017


The pension plans for the RCMP and the Public Service Pension Plan (PSPP) are broadly very similar.  They are both defined benefit pension plans with benefits that are almost identical.  Members in almost every situation will see a seamless transition from one plan to the other.

Share your story

Many civilian members (CM) will become PSAC members upon deeming. For some, this will be your first membership in a union. Many of you have questions about the role of the union and how it will work for you. One of the best ways to answer these questions is to hear from existing members.

Robyn Benson, National President

To Civilian Members of the RCMP who are in the process of beginning your transition to the federal public service, I am writing to welcome and introduce you to the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC).
