The ads also include wording from Trudeau's open letter to federal bureaucrats telling them that his government wanted a different kind of relationship with the hundreds of thousands federal civil servants, many of whom felt under siege with the previous Conservative government. "It has been a year since the election. The tone has changed, but it's now time for action," said PSAC national president Robyn Benson.
Contract talks dragging on
Treasury Board's plan would see the existing bank, which has about 15 million days of unused sick leave, abolished. The union said it has proposed contract language that would result in fairer treatment for workers when changes are made to the delivery of government services. It has also asked for wage increases totalling nine per cent over three years. Earlier this year the government had offered 0.5 per cent wage increases in each of three years, pay hikes it has already promised its executives.
