Sick Leave: Let’s Compare Apples with Apples 2

Comparing Apples with Oranges

There is no doubt, the Harper government is comparing apples with oranges when it comes to sick leave. Last February, upon request from a Member of Parliament, the Parliamentary Budget Officer (PBO) prepared the report Fiscal Analysis of Sick Leave in the Federal Public Service. This confirmed that the government’s numbers don’t add up.


Support your bargaining team

The bargaining process has started and there is no doubt that the government is putting sick leave on the table. It is time to regroup. Talk to your friends & co-workers. Stand together for sick leave and for public services. Most recent updates are available on the PSAC Web site for the PA Group.
