Occupational Group Structure:
Classification reform process
For more than 20 years, PSAC has called on the federal government to reform its outdated system, which still uses classification plans from the 1960s to evaluate the work our members perform in 2012.
It took more than 50 years to create this very complex system and both PSAC and the federal government recognize that in order to fix it, a review of the entire system is necessary, rather than just “tweaking” individual classifications.
PSAC believes that the current system cannot be fixed without a review of the broader occupational group structure. This is why the union has agreed to contract language that will compel Treasury Board to work with us to develop a new classification system that will evaluate and compensate all of our members fairly and equitably for the important work they do.
