Media Advisory: PSAC Members Raise Awareness About Phoenix Pay System

SUMMERSIDE, PEI – Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) members in PEI will be gathering to send a message to the Prime Minister and his government that federal public service workers deserve to be paid correctly and on time, every time. PSAC members are taking advantage of the summer to meet with their local MPs and discuss the plagued pay system. This is another initiative organized in order to raise awareness on the problems that federal public-sector workers are facing every pay day.

PSAC demands that Prime Minister Trudeau do the following:

  1. Stop asking our members to pay back the ‘gross amount’ on overpayments;
  2. Pay the damages owed to our members for all their hardships;
  3. Take all measures necessary until federal public service workers get paid correctly and on time, every time; and
  4. Launch a national public inquiry into the Phoenix debacle in order to prevent this from ever happening again.
