Phoenix Pay System

Phoenix has caused hundreds of thousands of pay errors, leaving tens of thousands of Canadian public servants underpaid, overpaid, or not paid at all.

Public servants – like all Canadians – deserve to be paid accurately and on time. That’s why replacing Phoenix with a system that works can’t happen soon enough.

We’re proud that we pushed the government to see that Phoenix must be replaced. We’ve insisted that unions like ours must be consulted on the work to find the replacement. The work to replace Phoenix is now underway, but public service employees continue to deal with serious personal consequences. 

PIPSC is fighting for you.

Fellow Members,

I share many of our members’ concerns at the planned transition of over 60 remaining federal organizations to the Phoenix system later this April. I have therefore written to Judy Foote, Minister of Public Services and Procurement urging her to postpone this transition until these issues have been resolved.
