It’s Official – RCMP Members Have Applied for Certification

Together, we have made history. Late yesterday, the NPF filed its application for certification with the Public Service Labour Relations Employment Board (PSLREB).

As the RCMP celebrates its 144th anniversary and Canada celebrates its 150th, we have filed the first ever, national application to represent all members of the RCMP as a collective bargaining agent. This is an achievement we hope makes all RCMP members proud.

Although we have all gone far too long without representation, we expect this process will take several months. We need to be patient and allow it to unfold, knowing we are now on a firm path to a more positive future. The first step is for the PSLREB to officially accept our application, and after which the PSLREB will set a closing date for us to finalize our membership numbers and other parties to file notices of intervention, among other legal steps. This is why it’s still important to join NPF:  so we can show our strongest voice and widespread solidarity to the Board and management throughout this process.

After the closing date has passed, the Board will set a date for a hearing at which the employer, intervenors and the NPF will make submissions.

We have asked MPPAC, AMPMQ not to interfere with or delay our filing, and we hope they will support your clear majority choice of NPF.

We will continue to update you on our progress. In the meantime, it’s as important as ever that your colleagues who’ve not yet joined consider signing up. Please share this news with them. Here are three other things you can do to help.

  1. Gentlemen:

    Congratulations again on this latest step achieved in the process of achieving the ultimate goal of association. I noted your appeal for patience from the membership as we wait for the process to proceed through its required course. I was at one of the Town Hall meetings quite some time ago and listened to one of you explain the steps in the process and an expected time frame expected to clear each successive hurdle to eventually get to an association. I am not sure how many people have heard an explanation of the steps involved and I think some may become concerned or impatient. Would you please publish some sort of comprehensive account of what has to happen and, if possible, the expected time frame for the successive stages. I think it may go a long way to nip impatience in the bud and aid the membership in general understanding of the process from here.

    Regards,

    J. Robilliard
