It’s been a year. Fix Phoenix.

Tell Prime Minister Justin Trudeau to fix Phoenix and learn from the mistakes that led to this debacle

A year ago, the Liberal government began its rollout of Phoenix, the consolidated payroll system for the public service. As soon as Phoenix launched, the problems began. PSAC urged the government to delay the final rollout until these problems were resolved. Sadly, the government didn’t listen. As a result, thousands of workers have been paid incorrectly or, in some cases, not at all.

Federal public service workers deserve to paid correctly and on-time.

Subject: It’s been a year. Fix Phoenix.

Dear Prime Minister,

This is a very sad anniversary for public service workers. A year ago, your government began its rollout of the consolidated payroll system for the public service, Phoenix.

Since then, thousands of workers have been paid incorrectly or, in some cases, not at all. This has caused financial hardship and stress for these workers. And many more worry every pay day if they will be the next victim of the Phoenix debacle.    

The problems with Phoenix are also putting excessive stress on the workers at the pay centre in Miramichi and the satellite offices.

I ask you to make this important issue a personal priority and take whatever steps are required to fix Phoenix.

Also, you and your government must learn the lessons from Phoenix and never repeat the mistakes that lead to this debacle. That means listening to the people doing the work and the unions that represents them.


Your message will be automatically copied to the MP in your riding, Judy Foote, Minister of Public Services and Procurement, Scott Brison, President of the Treasury Board, Robyn Benson, PSAC National President.
