PSAC members invited to test potential Phoenix replacements

This article was reposted from PSAC

This week marks the next step in the government’s quest to find a replacement for the disastrous Phoenix pay system.

The government’s NextGen HR and Pay Team is hosting a series of User Expos across Canada which will allow members to try out potential payroll software that could replace Phoenix. The events will take place from 9:00 am – 4:00 pm in the lobbies of the buildings listed below.

These events will provide an opportunity for many public service workers to contribute to in the selection process for the next generation of government payroll software.

PSAC is encouraging members to attend these events to test out the proposed solutions and give the valuable feedback the government needs to ensure the next payroll system is successful. 

PSAC representatives will also be attending the expos to help evaluate which pay solution best meets our members’ needs – for both those who process the paycheques and those who receive them. PSAC has insisted that the government must include the union in the pay system selection process so that we can ensure our members never have to endure a Phoenix fiasco again. One of PSAC’s top Treasury Board bargaining demands is that the government consults the union before any technological changes are put in place affecting our members.
