PSAC 2024 budget submission highlights improvements to public services, increased supports for all Canadians

PSAC’s submission to the Minister of Finance in advance of the 2024 Federal Budget outlines several recommendations, including providing funding to resolve the Phoenix pay disaster, pausing proposed cuts to public services until a full analysis can be performed, modernizing the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations and Employment Act, and settling the Black Class Action lawsuit.

The submission also urges the government to reform pension legislation to eradicate the existing two-tier system within the federal government, and to ensure that public safety workers in the federal government have access to the same pension benefits as other public safety employees.

PSAC's submission also calls for enhanced support for all Canadians through measures such as increasing Employment Insurance benefits, the establishment of a national housing plan, and enhancing funding for post-secondary education.
