Petition to the Government of Canada

Whereas:
  • In 2012, the Harper Government took the first steps toward deeming civilian members of the RCMP into the public service;
  • The Liberal government decided to carry out that process and announced in February of 2017 that all civilian members of the RCMP will be deemed employees appointed under the Public Service Employment Act (PSEA), effective April 26, 2018;
  • Civilian Members of the RCMP have clearly communicated their frustration and dissatisfaction with the deeming process;
  • Civilian Members of the RCMP do not want to be transferred from a properly working payroll system to a broken one that continues to cause hardship for thousands of civil servants; and
  • In response to questioning by Daniel Blaikie, M.P., at a meeting of the Standing Committee on Government Operations and Estimates, on November 9, 2017, the Honourable Scott Brison, President of the Treasury Board, committed not to transition civilian RCMP members to Phoenix before its problems are resolved and stated: "We don't want to add to the burden of Phoenix at a time when we're still working through the problems and it makes sense, so I would agree with your assessment."
We, the undersigned, residents of Canada, call upon the President of the Treasury Board to honour his commitment to civilian RCMP members and delay the transfer of almost 4000 sworn Civilian Members of the RCMP onto the Phoenix payroll system until the problems with the system have been fixed.
