Canadians voted for change, PSAC calls on new Parliament to restore public services and repair relations with federal public service employees

OTTAWA –Canadians rejected the Harper Conservatives and voted for change on October 19 and that is good news for Canada, says the Public Service Alliance of Canada.

The Federal Government is in the process of drafting legislation representing an unprecedented attack on the retirement security of all Canadians.

The UPCE National Executive is concerned over an article that was released by the Council of Canadians, this past July 30, 2015.  The subject of the article is privatization. The article seems to openly contradict Canada Post’s previous and multiple statements that there are no plans to privatize Canada Post.

The PSAC-UPCE’s primary focus was to ensure that Canada Post continued to make its pay equity adjustments for discriminatory wages paid from August 24, 1982 to June 2, 2002. The Pay Equity Project on the Canada Post side is now winding down and we started an internal project to review our members’ eligibility to a pay equity adjustment from the Union.

Canada Post says 10,000 have received pay equity cheques.

The post office is set to place ads to find others who could be eligible for compensation in a case that has spanned more than 30 years.

December and all the activity that surrounds this month is upon us.  As 2014 draws to a close, we hope that you will have an opportunity to reflect upon the year that has passed, and find quality time to spend with your loved ones, your family, and your friends.

UPCE Collective Agreement books will be distributed to UPCE members this week.
