Phoenix Pay System: Have your say
Tell Judy Foote, the Minister of Public Services and Procurement to Fix Phoenix now
Haven’t received your pay in weeks or months? Not getting paid at all? Experiencing delays in receiving your overtime pay? The federal government is responsible for paying public service workers on time for the work they do. Unfortunately, the new Phoenix pay system is not working and is hurting many public service workers. It is also putting excessive and unfair stress on our members who process pay under the new system.
It is time to ask Minister Judy Foote to fix the Phoenix pay system now. Please sign and send the letter below. You can also include your own story of problems with the Phoenix pay system.
The Honourable Judy Foote
Minister of Public Services and Procurement

Subject: Fix Phoenix pay system now
Dear Ms. Foote,
I am a public service worker in the federal government.
Your department is responsible for paying me on time for the work I do. Unfortunately, the new Phoenix pay system isn’t working and is greatly impacting public service workers. This includes those on maternity, parental or disability leave who still are not getting the record of employment needed to collect employment insurance.
It is also putting excessive and unfair stress on the employees who process pay under the new system.
I ask you to take whatever steps are required to fix the Phoenix pay system now.
Your government must ensure that all departments have sufficient funds to provide priority payments to anyone whose pay has been disrupted. The government also needs to put the required resources in place to distribute these funds quickly and effectively and let employees know these funds are available.
