Few topics in the workplace attract as much attention as staffing. For those who receive promotions, either acting or permanent, the rewards are significant: advancement on a career path, more challenging work, better pay. For those who are not successful, the reality is quite different. And when staffing decisions lack integrity, many members suffer – not just a few. Taking action to ensure fairer staffing is a key part of building a better workplace.
For CEIU members, staffing rules and procedures are set out in legislation. In November, 2003, the government introduced major changes to many areas of the public service, including staffing. The new Public Service Employment Act came into force December 31, 2005 and it represents a significant shift in how the staffing of positions will be carried out. As the new system is implemented, more information will be added to this section of the website. In the meantime, members can review the Getting started with staffing page for an overview of the new system.
