ST. JOHN’S – On August 18, the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and public service employees will rally in Public Services and Procurement Canada Minister Judy Foote’s home province to ask the government to fix the broken Phoenix pay system.

PSAC National Executive Vice-President Chris Aylward and Union of National Defence Employees (UNDE) President John MacLennan will hold a press conference prior to the rally.
