PSAC has negotiated a settlement with Statistical Survey Operations (SSO) that will put outstanding pay equity money into the hands of our members.

The settlement will apply to thousands of eligible current and former Interviewers and Senior Interviewers who worked at Statistics Canada between March 8, 1985 and November 5, 1987 and for SSO between November 6, 1987 and November 30, 2013.

"This a huge victory for thousands of our members," said Robyn Benson, PSAC National President. "PSAC has fought to reach a pay equity settlement with Statistical Survey Operations for years."

In light of the slow pace of negotiations with the new Liberal government, the PSAC is calling on members to boycott the government’s National Public Service Week to be held June 12-18 this year.

The Liberal government has yet to deliver on their stated commitment to repair their relationship with the public service and restore respect for public service workers.

That is why we strongly encourage our members to boycott National Public Service Week and to urge their co-workers to do the same.

We need to show this new government that we are united in our demands at the table. 

PSAC President Robyn Benson conveyed our union’s serious concerns about the implementation of the final phase of the Phoenix pay system in a recent meeting with Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) on April 25. PSAC has been sounding the alarm on this pay system for months now.

Benson shared her concerns that our members are still not getting paid properly. And the stress continues to mount for the employees in Miramichi who are working on the new system.
