Petition to the President of the Treasury Board

Whereas:
  • On March 9, 2016, Bill C-7 was tabled to the House of Commons by the President of the Treasury Board;
  • Bill C-7 amends the Public Service Labour Relations Act to provide labour relations for members of the RCMP;
  • Bill C-7, in its original form, removes the exclusion of RCMP members from workers' compensation schemes under the Government Employees Compensation Act;
  • Bill C-7 fails to include Civilian Members of the RCMP in it, allowing them the ability to negotiate and remain members of the RCMP; and
  • Bill C-7 severely limits the ability of RCMP members to negotiate in broad terms outside of wages, benefits and pension.
We, the undersigned, members of the RCMP, our spouses, family members and citizens of Canada, call upon the President of the Treasury Board to modify Bill C-7 to ensure it establishes a fair collective bargaining framework for RCMP members. Specifically, we request that the President of the Treasury Board sustain the decision of the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security to remove those elements of Bill C-7 that modify RCMP members' current status under the Government Employees Compensation Act and would devolve their care to provincial workers' compensation schemes without negotiation or consultation.
We, the undersigned, also call upon the President of the Treasury Board, the Honourable Scott Brison and the Minister of Public Safety, the Honourable Ralph Goodale, to meet with and consult members of the RCMP who are directly affected by Bill C-7, it's conditions and amendments with the objective to allow members and it's chosen bargaining unit the ability to negotiate enhanced working conditions, training, equipment, pay, benefits and pension.
