Canada’s unions are welcoming the federal government’s announcement that it will appoint an ombudsperson to ensure Canadian corporations respect their human rights obligations abroad. 
 
The new position, formally titled the Canadian Ombudsperson for Responsible Enterprise (CORE), was announced today by François-Philippe Champagne, Minister of International Trade. The ombudsperson will be mandated to investigate allegations of wrongdoing by Canadian mining, energy, and textile companies operating abroad. Their mandate will expand to include other industries over time.

The Public Service Alliance of Canada will be holding an electronic vote for members of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to ratify the tentative agreement between PSAC and CFIA.

The voting period will open on January 22 and close February 22, 2018 at 12 p.m.

Meetings will be held by webinar for all members, in addition to face-to-face meetings organized in some regions.

More information about meeting dates and locations in your area will be posted shortly. As per Regulation 15 of the PSAC Constitution, all members must attend a meeting – either by webinar or in-person – in order to cast a vote.

The Public Service Alliance of Canada is asking the Federal Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board to declare that the federal government has failed to meet the implementation deadline for the PA, SV, TC and EB collective agreements and has violated its obligations under the law and the collective agreements.

Recovery of net pay vs gross pay

PSAC has demanded the government only recover net pay from employees who have received overpayments because of Phoenix, instead of requiring the reimbursement of gross pay.

The employer’s response, however, falls disappointingly short of the union’s demand. 

Overpayments must be reported by January 19, 2018
