Statement: Public service labour disruptions and pay


The Government of Canada would like to clarify information regarding employees’ pay in the context of the current labour disruption by the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC).

Employees on strike are considered to be on Leave Without Pay and will not be paid for the time they are participating in strike activity.

Since the strike began on April 19 and federal public servants are paid two weeks in arrears, employees who chose to strike will see a reduction in pay as early as their May 10th paycheque.

The Government of Canada is committed to processing all pay transactions in a timely manner.
