"Robyn, when I say Phoenix to you, what's the first thing that comes to mind?" "Debacle! Debacle comes to mind."

Thousands of workers have experienced pay problems - under payment, late payment, and in some cases no pay at all - because of Phoenix, the new payroll system the federal government introduced in 2016.

We sat down with Robyn Benson, the Public Service Alliance of Canada's National President, for a frank discussion about PSAC's response to the Phoenix debacle. Here's the video.

The Federal Court of Appeal has ruled in favour of the right of adjudicators to rule on cases of termination resulting from revocation of reliability status.

PSAC has filed an unfair labour practice complaint with the Public Service Labour and Employment Relations Board due to the employer’s ongoing refusal to allow the union to post bargaining updates in the workplace.

Such refusal violates our legal right to share information with our members about bargaining and interferes in the work we do to represent you, our members. We have asked the labour board to ensure SSO immediately cease and desist from preventing employees from engaging in these lawful union activities.

We want to encourage you to attend the B.C. Federation of Labour Young Workers School at Camp Jubilee. This year it will be held from September 15 – 17. 2017, with participants departing from Deep Cove on Friday afternoon and returning Sunday afternoon.

Our bargaining team met with the employer in Ottawa from June 20 to 22, 2017.

After much delay, the two parties met for three days in Ottawa and were able to sign off on a few amendments to the collective agreement including:

  • definition of the family
  • no discrimination
  • leave for family related responsibilities
  • bereavement leave

The Employer also removed their demand to roll-back sick leave provisions in the collective agreement
