PIPSC Welcomes the New Federal Cabinet

Fellow members,

On November 20, 2019 Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the composition of his new Cabinet.

On behalf of the Institute’s 60,000 members, I would like to congratulate these Members of Parliament on their appointment, or reappointment, to Cabinet.  We wish them every success in their portfolio.

We especially welcome the Honourable Jean-Yves Duclos to the position of President of the Treasury Board. We look forward to working with him and to maintaining the positive relationship that we have enjoyed with the Employer of the majority of our members since 2015.

The Institute is ready to collaborate effectively with all parties to ensure that the federal public service meets the growing needs and aspirations of all Canadians in the years ahead.

We will be analyzing several of the key departmental mandate letters in the days ahead and will inform our members of how the government’s priorities line up compared to ours.

Better Together!

Debi Daviau,

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.
