Info on the tentative Phoenix settlement agreed to by most bargaining agents (less PSAC).

Joint statement: https://www.acfo-acaf.com/2019/05/07/joint-statement-federal-unions-approve-agreement-on-phoenix-damages/?fbclid=IwAR2UHxGCwbMfPvbCd7f23_-CBcLujwpA-Z6lGtyxBo7jvCnhcyKSh8hBYDo

"Eight things you need to know": https://www.pipsc.ca/news-issues/phoenix-pay-system/8-things-you-need-to-know-about-phoenix-compensation-agreement

interesting.  we'll see what PSAC gets.

The impact on me has been minimal.  My wife was owed 30,000$.  Was solved recently more or less.  Luckily our finances were strong enough to weather this garbage.

5 days as overall compensation and compensation for sick leave for those affected seems fair to an extent.  it's the case by case issues that are the bigger problem.

Although a 6900% increase from the initial cost estimate is “not insignificant,” whoever thought you could design and implement a pay management system for $46 per employee should not have any place of responsibility in the organization.
