18.3.5 PHOENIX PAYROLL SYSTEM

WHEREAS it is a basic right of every worker in Canada to be paid all wages due them on the date due, and

WHEREAS the Federal Government of Canada is failing to do so because of the Phoenix Pay System, and

WHEREAS the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) continues to wage battles on behalf of its members pressuring the Federal Government to adopt a payroll system which properly pays workers all wages due on time,

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED that the National Pensioners Federation (NPF) work with the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) the Canadian Labour Congress and Federations of Labour in their demands and actions to get fairness and respect for Federal Government workers who have suffered negative impacts of the Phoenix pay system.
