OTTAWA — The biggest union representing public servants in Canada is seeking damages after the federal government missed a deadline for implementing four collective agreements.
The move formalizes a complaint launched in October by the Public Service Alliance of Canada after the Liberal government openly admitted problems with its Phoenix pay system would mean it would miss a 150-day deadline to pay three years’ worth of back pay and implement pay raises under the agreements.
The new contracts were ratified in June.
