Ottawa, November 10, 2017 – On Tuesday, November 14, Debi Daviau, President of the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC) will hold a press conference on Parliament Hill about the troubled Phoenix pay system and outline a key demand of the government.
Since the new payroll system was rolled out in February 2016, more than half of federal public servants have experienced ongoing pay problems, including being underpaid, overpaid or not paid at all. The Liberal government pledged to fix the problem for good by the end of October 2016, but has long since missed that self-imposed deadline.
