On February 15, the NPF filed a new Unfair Labour Practice (ULP) complaint against the Treasury Board (RCMP). This ULP addresses changes to the NCO promotion system requiring the completion of the Supervisor and Manager Development Programs (SDP & MDP) prior to being eligible for promotion to the next rank.
Although the NPF is supportive of RCMP members receiving training (in fact, the more the better) our members tell us that it’s difficult if not impossible to implement these requirements due to ongoing staff shortages, as they cannot be released from their existing position to complete the required training. This is just another example of how RCMP short-staffing and resource challenges impede and impact our members’ safety, success and quality of life.
