PSAC: Union to File Complaint with Labor Board Regarding Hybrid Work Plan
The Public Service Alliance of Canada says it is filing a complaint with the Labor Board against the federal government.
Last week, Treasury Board President Mona Fortier announced that all federal public servants will return to duty at least two to three days a week in the new year.
This mandate is expected to begin on January 16 with full implementation by the end of March.
The union, which represents 165,000 civil servants, says in a statement it opposes what it calls a ‘one-size-fits-all approach’ and is trying to make remote work part of the next contract collective.
This agreement is currently being negotiated, and the Public Service Alliance says that changing the working conditions during the negotiations is against the law.
The union says it will be in touch with members in the new year and let them know how to file grievances against the government.
