Unionization

April 17, 2018
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.
