An encouraging first meeting with Treasury Board President Duclos

Fellow members,

On January 17, 2020 I met for the first time with the new President of the Treasury Board, Jean-Yves Duclos.  Also present was his Parliamentary Secretary, Member of Parliament Greg Fergus, with whom we already enjoy a constructive working relationship. Interestingly, Mr. Fergus also fulfills a similar role for the Minister of Digital Government, Joyce Murray – another key point of contact for us with the government.

Over the course of the meeting, I brought several of our members’ foremost issues to Mr. Duclos’ attention, including the Employee Wellness Support Program (EWSP); the move of our RCMP members to the Phoenix system; training and professional development for our IT community; and the Next Generation pay system (NextGen).  On this last point, he assured me that the project is on track and a top priority for the government.

Overall, I found President Duclos receptive to our ideas and I look forward to working with him in the future.

Better Together!

The inexcusable state of federal buildings across the country is an extremely concerning situation that can only be corrected by a long-term, and expensive, commitment on the part of the government. We will continue to keep a very close watch on the situation.

We are heading into the new year, energized and determined. In the year ahead, we will work hard to get back every cent owed from Phoenix, ratify the new Employee Wellness Support Plan, fight outsourcing and protect our pensions.
