Update on pay centre move for compensation advisors
PSAC has received messages from our members, concerned about Prime Minister Harper’s plan to centralize pay administration services for the federal public service in New Brunswick. This will involve moving 550 jobs to Mirimachi – including many compensation advisor positions.
The union shares their concern that the government’s announcement will undermine the very important work done by Compensation Advisors and lead to a worsening of the pay administration – not the improvements needed by federal public service workers.
We do not understand how this project will improve the pay administration system, and have publicly expressed our concern that the announcement is politically motivated, given the government’s desire to eliminate the Miramichi-based long gun registry.
Our union is committed to taking every step necessary to represent compensation advisors and ensure that their collective agreement rights are respected. We will also hold the government to its promise that no compensation employees are at risk of losing their employment.
PSAC’s President John Gordon has written to the senior government officials responsible for the project, demanding a role for the union in the consultation processes promised by the government and as required under the Workforce Adjustment provisions of the collective agreement.
We are committed to working with the compensation advisor community to ensure their voices and interests are represented in all discussions about how to strengthen the pay administration system.
