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.

The recommendation addresses a number of key issues that we raised in bargaining, issues that the employer has yet to adequately address, if at all.

On wages, the Commission's recommendation is the following (replication of increases provided to RCMP constables and also contained in the Correctional Services agreement):
