Workplace issues

Encountering issues in the workplace is not uncommon. At some point during your career, your rights, safety and well-being in the workplace could be challenged. If you think you have experienced a violation of your collective agreement, of workplace policies or of federal or provincial laws, it is your right to seek redress. 

Our labour relations officers can advise you on how to best manage your work-related issues or represent you to seek redress, building on more than two decades of experience supporting federal public service employees. You can also turn to your local steward if you need general information. 

Some of the most common issues we have dealt with in the past were related to:

  • Classification
  • Harassment and discrimination 
  • Leave 
  • Mental and physical health 
  • Pay (Phoenix) 
  • Performance evaluation 
  • Promotion
  • Workload management
