PSAC represents about 90,000 federal public service workers who are employed by the Treasury Board of Canada. The current collective agreements for the the following bargaining units will expire within the next four months:

Figures released from the Public Service Employee Survey this past week found that 93% of those impacted by Phoenix had to spend hours of their own time to try to resolve their pay problems. Almost 50% spent days trying to get paid correctly and 14% said it has taken them 40 hours or more.

When the Phoenix nightmare began, one of the first things PSAC did was secure a claims process for expenses incurred because of inaccurate pay. We encourage our members to claim these expenses.

There is no deadline for submitting these claims. If you incurred expenses due to a pay problem in 2016 or 2017, you are still eligible to file.

As a PSAC member working for the Treasury Board - FB Group, you will be voting on a tentative agreement with your employer between April 16 and May 31, 2018.

If you wish to vote, you must ensure that you are a member in good standing and that the union has an up to date mailing address for you. If you have not done this yet, please update your information here. This vote will be conducted electronically, and we need to ensure that only those entitled receive the PIN number required to cast a vote.

Some highlights of the deal include wage increases to bring our officers on-par with other law enforcement agencies, resisting concessions on family and sick leave, fighting for fair treatment with regards to discipline, and important workforce adjustments.

PSAC and our members are frustrated with the government’s failure to follow through on its commitment to delay recoveries of overpayments and emergency pay until federal public service workers have had all their pay problems resolved.
