A single message to a Member of Parliament is effective. It represents a vote – the key to any Member of Parliament keeping their job. Any politician will tell you that every vote counts, and that’s certainly true. But if one message and one vote matters, imagine the strength of hundreds or thousands of messages!

In collaboration with volunteers across the country, Federal Retirees will deliver these budget priorities to all 338 Members of Parliament.

Federal Retirees recommendation:

That this government ensures retirees and employees are properly compensated and invest appropriate funds and continue to work with labour and retiree partners to resolve Phoenix Pay System issues.

Quick facts:

  • 42% of Federal Retirees members surveyed said they had suffered issues related to the Phoenix pay system.
  • Federal Retirees reported Phoenix-related issues ranging from unpaid severance to large overpayments that led to tax and repayment problems.
  • Canada’s public service was voted best in the world – yet there are hundreds of thousands of public servants who are still dealing with compensation problems for more than two years.
  • The government cannot hope to attract and retain qualified, high-performing workers to Canada’s public service if these issues persist.
  • The 2019 must prioritize resolving the Phoenix Pay System issues – our public service deserves better.
