Sisters, Brothers, and Friends,

June 21 is the day set aside as the day to celebrate the Indigenous peoples of Canada. This year, 2017, marks the country’s 150th birthday. The birthday celebration conversation has non-Indigenous celebrants voicing pride in good fortune gained through hard work. This Indigenous non-celebrant voices sorrow that generations of my ancestors have been brutalized for 150 years by this country’s laws. Today. Still.

Earlier this week, delegates to the PSAC BC regional convention elected Brother Jamey Mills to serve as the new PSAC Regional Executive Vice-President for British Columbia.

Jamey is a long time union leader who began his career as an activist as the Young Workers Coordinator on the PSAC BC Regional Council and as a member of the BC Federation of Labour Young Worker Committee, where he sat on the BC Fed Executive Council.

Federal public service workers and allies, including the BC Government and Service Employees Union, the Hospital Employees Union, the BC Federation of Labour, the Vancouver and District Labour Council rallied in Vancouver on the last day of National Public Service Week to call on the government to fix the Phoenix pay system and bargain fairly with our federal government workers who don't have a contract yet.

Vancouver – On the last day of National Public Service Week, federal public service workers will gather in Vancouver to rally and call on Scott Brison, President of the Treasury Board, to make fixing the disastrous Phoenix pay system his priority.

The Phoenix payroll system used by the federal government has been riddled with problems since it was rolled out in early 2016. Tens of thousands of workers have been under-paid, paid late, or in some cases not paid at all.

Tell Scott Brison, President of the Treasury Board, to make fixing Phoenix his priority. Please send the letter below. You can also include your personal comments.
