As you are aware, the inaugural election for the first NPF Board of Directors is complete and results announced [Results].
Brian and Peter are honoured to have been voted to the executive of the National Police Federation and look forward to continuing the important work we’ve begun to provide strong, professional, fair and progressive representation to promote and enhance the rights of RCMP members.
My congratulations to all successful candidates, and thanks to all who ran in the election. A big thank you, also, to everyone who took the time to vote in this historic election. We enjoyed a 75% voter turnout which is higher than the norm in the police universe and reflects the engagement of you, our members.
New Board to take Office:
The NPF is planning the inaugural meeting of elected representatives on January 6-10, 2020. All elected candidates will be confirmed and assume their new Board of Director positions, and a bargaining committee will be appointed at this meeting. We are working to finalize a few details with the RCMP and Treasury Board before these members can occupy their positions, such as the Leave Provisions (LWOP, secondment etc) as they transfer into their new role.
The NPF has been in negotiations with Treasury Board over the past few months on this and other topics and is confident final agreements can be reached by early December.
Since the NPF served Notice to Bargain in July 2019, we have had several meetings with Treasury Board and the RCMP on several administrative topics such as the above leave provisions, dues implementation and disclosure of information the NPF is entitled to.
We anticipate most of this information will be disclosed by January, placing the NPF in a position to engage professionals to do some research and prepare a proposal for bargaining. As this process moves forward, we will keep you up to date.
