As you may have heard or read online, QMPMA has contracted the services of Chris Backus to facilitate dialogue with the NPF. To be clear, the NPF has notengaged Chris Backus to work on our behalf.
Chris contacted Brian Sauvé, who met with Chris this week to discuss QMPMA and the NPF and the process with the FPSLREB: context and background and clarifying some misinformation.
We appreciated the conversation and reiterated that the NPF has always been and remains open to dialogue from all members and all member associations.
But our clear focus now is on certification and avoiding any further delays. RCMP members have waited too long without representation and are now on the cusp of being able to vote for their first-ever organized labour representative. The NPF has at all times acted to expedite this process and we will oppose any further tactics to delay that vote.
If Chris or the QMPMA reach out to the NPF for further meaningful discussion, we are open to that approach in the interests of all members and the future of representation in the RCMP.
We’ll continue to update you as we know more about the upcoming vote process. In the meantime, here are three other things you can do to help.
