Over the course of the August 5, 2017 weekend, the employer began the salary update for members of the Programs and Administrative Services Group (PA).
Even though changes are being made to Phoenix and HR systems the adjustments will not immediately appear on employees’ pay. Given that employees are paid in arrears, they will begin seeing new rates starting with the August 23 payday. Your new salary rate should be reflected on the August 23 pay. If you find any mistakes in your pay, contact the human resources unit in your department and notify your PSAC union representative.
Retroactive payments will be issued over the full timeframe of the implementation schedule, up to November 11, 2017. Some PA group members may receive one full retro payment; others may receive it in multiple payments over multiple pay periods, due to the need for manual processing of some transactions.
