Important labour relations developments for all members

As announced yesterday by the Minister of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, the Government of Canada has launched a consultation process with regular members to create a new labour relations framework in response to the Supreme Court of Canada’s (SCC) ruling in January 2015.

As a result of yesterday’s message, we understand many civilian members have questions regarding the Categories of Employees (COE) initiative and on the survey itself. We have posted a series of new questions and answers on the Infoweb on both the Labour Relations Development site and the COE site, which will provide more background information on the SCC’s decision and the potential impacts on civilian members. Regular members may also find this new information useful as they complete the survey.

Of note, the SCC decision does not affect our COE initiative, which is why the consultations will focus on regular members. I assure you that our work on COE remains a priority for the RCMP, and progress is being made. We are able to report that all necessary work to allow deeming to occur in the summer or fall of 2017 is well underway to ensure a smooth transition for civilian members to their new status under the Public Service Employment Act, although the final decision remains with Treasury Board Ministers.

We are committed to keeping all employees informed as both of these important projects move forward.

Daniel Dubeau, Deputy Commissioner
Chief Human Resources Officer
