Report of the Regional Executive Vice-President, Prairies to the National Board of Directors, submitted for the October 17-20, 2017 meeting. This report covers the period from the last NBOD meeting.

PSAC is calling on the federal government to address organizational and workload issues resulting from the influx of asylum seekers from the United States. Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale and Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Minister Ahmed Hussen must take responsibility for fixing these persistent problems.

A newly released consultant’s report validates concerns that were raised by PSAC in the lead up to the launch of the Phoenix pay system.

PSAC representatives met with Treasury Board to discuss the differences in the RCMP Superannuation Act and the Public Service Superannuation Act. Treasury Board officials assure PSAC – and by extension civilian members (CM) – that this will be a seamless transition.

As we commemorate Women’s history month this October, PSAC remembers the women of the labour movement who have fought tirelessly to improve the lives of women and all workers.
