PSAC monitoring pay accounts transfer for problems
Public Works and Government Services Canada has so far transferred 7,200 pay accounts from a number of departments to the public service pay centre in Miramichi, New Brunswick.
Another 3,200 accounts are due to be transferred in March 2013 with a further 9,600 accounts scheduled for transfer in September 2013, for a total of 20,000 accounts. The next wave of transfers will start in September 2013, and will involve the transfer of another 40,000 accounts in 2013-2014.
Tell your union and your department if you experience payroll problems
The union continues to monitor any payroll problems being experienced by members whose accounts have been transferred. Anyone who has had delays or errors in processing, or had difficulty getting a response from the pay centre should contact their Component office and notify their department.
The union needs to know about any problems that result from moving pay services from individual departments to a single centre. PSAC can then address these issues with Treasury Board through union management consultation.The compensation advisors are PSAC members too and the union wants to ensure that the transition works to everyone's benefit.
