818 CEIU Members at HRSDC Received their Work Force Adjustment “WFA” Letter

The 2012 Budget has shown its first impact at HRSDC. With a workforce of almost 25,000 employees and a 3.8% budget cut, HRSDC took the initial action of providing letters to 1403 of its employees. This affected 818 of our members this Monday April 30th.

The biggest impact is in the National Capital Region where 665 members received their letters. The second most impacted region is the West with 142 affected members, while Ontario, Québec and the Atlantic regions have 11 affected members in total.

At a meeting in the past week, the CEIU Representative on the WFA Committee asked Management that all measures be taken in order to provide assistance to these employees. Also, Don Rogers made it clear that the timing of this action was not appropriate given that all CEIU elected members were to be at the PSAC Convention that week. CEIU will ensure that members who won’t get a reasonable job offer do get an explanation as to why this was the case. CEIU will monitor the processes used by HRSDC to select who retains their job to ensure that is done equitably and transparently.
