Boycotting Public Service week – June 12th to 18th 2016
Although as Correctional Officers we are proud to serve Canadians as part of the Federal Public Service, we are not supporting federal public service week this year for the following reasons:
· Numerous pay issues including untimely payments for supplementary pay and no pay in some circumstances that continue to affect our members livelihood;
· The failure of Treasury Board, after 2 years, to come with a mandate to negotiate in good faith and to recognize our distinct working conditions as Federal Correctional Officers.
For these reasons we are boycotting public service week. We are hopeful the new government will give new mandates to Treasury Board negotiators to begin bargaining respectfully with Canada’s 7,000 plus front line officers and that pay issues are corrected and received in a timely manner.
