Remove the Public Sector Equitable Compensation Act from the budget bill – Please send a letter to the Senate and get 10 of your friends to do the same. see http://petition.web.net/psac/node/27
The Senate has an opportunity to remove the Public Sector Equitable Compensation Act from the Budget Implementation Act, without delaying the passage of the budget and economic stimulus measures contained in C-10. Send a letter to the members of the Senate National Finance Committee and to the Senators in your province urging them to support the removal of the PSECA from Bill C-10. Don’t use the budget bill to eliminate pay equity
On February 6, the government tabled legislation that will radically change the rules governing pay equity in the federal public sector. The Public Sector Equitable Compensation Act will remove the right of public sector workers to file pay equity complaints with the Canadian Human Rights Commission and transform it into an issue that can be traded away at the bargaining table. This Act must be removed from Bill C-10, the Budget Implementation Act.
Pay Equity: The Federal government MUST take action!
Despite the fact that the Pay Equity Task Force recommended the adoption of a stand-alone proactive pay equity law, the federal government has done nothing.
