e-1538 (Federal public service)

Initiated by Todd Ferguson from Toronto, Ontario

Original language of petition: English

Petition to the Minister of Public Services and Procurement

  • The Phoenix pay system has been operational for two years now and the federal government has been unable to get it to perform its basic task of paying federal public sector workers accurately and on-time;
  • The Auditor General of Canada believes bringing the Phoenix pay system to a functional state will require more than $540 million in additional costs and several more years;
  • Over 500,000 cases of missing or inaccurate pay have been reported in the last two years; and
  • Federal public sector workers deserve to receive their pay accurately, consistently, and on-time;
We, the undersigned, citizens and residents of Canada, call upon the Minister of Public Services and Procurement to:
1. Commit the necessary resources and begin the development of another pay system, created internally by public sector workers, to replace the Phoenix pay system and accurately and consistently pay federal public sector workers in a timely manner; and
2. Hire as many Pay Advisors and other pay personnel as required to ensure that all federal public sector workers consistently and accurately receive their pay & benefits;
