An important victory for our members: the government commits $117M to the Next Generation human resources and pay system

Fellow members,

On September 6, 2019, the government announced the investment of $117M in the design and delivery of the Next Generation human resources and pay system (NextGen), the much-awaited successor to the disastrous Phoenix.  The money will be used to develop pilot projects aimed at testing potential solutions to the innumerable pay issues faced by hundreds of thousands of public servants over the past few years.

This is a big win for us.  The government is respecting the commitment it made to the Institute and other public service bargaining agents about investing up-front the funds needed for testing the potential new system – something that was never done with Phoenix, with catastrophic results for PIPSC members.

Proper funding is an important first step in the creation of a new, fully functional public service pay system.  But it is equally important that our members, especially our CS members, be involved throughout the design and implementation of NextGen.  This is something the government promised us and it is the key to guaranteeing the success of the new system.  I will keep a watchful eye on developments in this regard and will make sure the government fully lives up to its commitment on that front.

Better Together!

Debi Daviau
