e-981 (Employment)

Initiated by Céline Germain from Montreal, Quebec

Original language of petition: French

Petition to the Minister of National Revenue

  • More than 200 permanent employees in the Greater Montreal Area in the CRA’s collections program will lose their current work at a still unknown point in time;
  • More than 140 term workers in the CRA’s collections program have contracts ending on June 30, 2017, and many of them have been employed for more than three years;
  • A significant amount of public funding has been invested over the years to train these employees and prepare them to take over;
  • The transfer of work and expertise will not benefit the organization, as new funding will have to be spent to rebuild the current level of services offered to Canadians; and
  • This renewal initiative does not respect the Liberal government’s commitments to the public service and shows a clear lack of foresight, transparency, consultation, vision and respect.
We, the undersigned, CRA employees and union members, call upon the Minister of National Revenue to reverse the decision that impacts many constituents and their families by seriously disrupting their lives by asking them to choose between a job and relocating.
