From the President …

Dear AFS Members

This fall brings to close a busy and successful year for our AFS Group. There have been some frustrations with management pushing ahead to further restrict due process and recourse in staffing. However, we definitely have had successes that are worth celebrating. 

During a challenging political climate, we settled a new collective agreement that provides fair wage increases for all our AFS members. We also negotiated damages for AFS members for Phoenix compensation and for the delayed implementation of our contract. 

We have a diverse combination of professions in our AFS Group and our AFS Executive and steward network ensures that every occupation has their concerns heard. 

Our AFS Group represents 12,000 dedicated professionals in the CRA and I am proud to serve as your president.

Best wishes to all our AFS members for a safe and happy holiday season!

In solidarity,

Doug Mason

AFS President
