The webinars will take place on July 17, 2018, in French and July 18 in English and will cover two topics:

Many Canadians are not fully aware of the terrible impact Phoenix has had on the lives of federal public service workers, but more importantly, the importance of the work they continue to do in the face of missed paycheques, fending off debt collectors, and endless stress.

Please submit your proposals for changes to Andrea Dean by no later than Friday, November 16, 2018, attached is an Input Call Form. We will also post a short notice of the input call on the PSAC’s website along with the Form.

The proposed changes will be compiled and vetted by the Ad hoc NJC Committee to the NBoD as well as the PSAC Representative on the NJC Government Travel Committee prior to being consolidated with the proposals from other bargaining agents.

PSAC is calling on the government to focus on the following key considerations to ensure the success of the MMIWG Inquiry:

  • There needs to be informative, transparent and accountable communications throughout the MMIWG Inquiry.
  • Priority must be given to listening to the families of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls, including First Nations, Inuit and Métis women. Their needs must be placed at the forefront of the investigation, which includes culturally-based counselling and trauma support for witnesses.
  • The Inquiry must include the development of a national action plan to end violence against Indigenous women.
  • The Government of Canada must fully implement all recommendations made in the Inquiry.

Last week, the Quebec Superior Court struck down section 113(b) of the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations Act (FPSLRA), which prohibited federal public service bargaining agents from negotiating pension plans and staffing. The court confirmed that the section was unconstitutional and infringed on the rights of Canadians to free collective bargaining under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
