Petition to keep Public Service Health Care Plan contributions unchanged

February 20, 2014

In its most recent budget, the federal government announced a deficit reduction measure that would see it dip into the pockets of present and future retired public servants. By taking hundreds of dollars annually away from individual retirees – an amount equivalent to 1% of their retirement income, on average – the government will be breaching the moral contract it has with its employees.

You can add your voice to those of tens of thousands of Canadians who are asking the President of the Treasury Board to give up this quest to balance the budget on the backs of federal retirees. Visit change.org website to sign a petition asking the Treasury Board President to honour the government’s promise to its employees.
