The government’s National Public Service Week will be held from June 11-17, 2017. Federal public service workers are proudly committed to providing the services Canadians depend on. Yet thousands are still having financial troubles because they are not being paid correctly or on time.

This year, let’s use National Public Service Week to send a message: tell the government to FIX PHOENIX ONCE AND FOR ALL!

Are you a federal government worker affected by the Phoenix fiasco? Help us raise awareness!

We want to hear your story so we can share it with the public, politicians, and other members.
