Union of Safety and Justice Employees holds rally to scrap the three-day in-person mandate

OTTAWA, ON, June 10, 2024 /CNW/ – The Union of Safety and Justice Employees (USJE), alongside members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) – as well as allies – will be holding a rally in front of Treasury Board building in Ottawa with a strong message to “Scrap the Mandate.”

The rally is in response to President of Treasury Board Anita Anand’s arbitrary decision regarding the Direction on prescribed presence in the workplace (the “Direction”).  Effective September 9th 2024, the Direction mandates all federal public service employees to be at the work site a minimum of three days per week, and Executives a minimum of four days. 

This new Direction will further limit hybrid work options for federal public service employees.

The Direction flies in the face of the Government of Canada’s previous commitments of collaboration, flexibility, and consultation as expressed in the Letter of Agreement on Telework (2023).

“Public Service employees have fully adapted to a modern, decentralized work format which promotes productivity, limits unnecessary commuting time and leverages basic technological innovations. The Union of Safety and Justice Employees is very clear that a nuanced approach will enable public service employees to do their best work and ensure that the Government of Canada can improve its own ability to attract and retain skilled workers. The new Treasury Board Directive is a significant step backwards, not forward,” says President Neufeld. 

WHEN: Tuesday, June 11th from 12:00 – 12:30 pm

WHERE: Treasury Board Office, 90 Elgin Street, Ottawa, Ontario
