Many of you will have received a communication from the RCMP recently notifying you of the first dues deduction on the January 29 payroll, and advising you to update your contact information on the NPF website. Unless you are a registered member of the NPF, you will not be able to update your information.
Instead, please send your updated contact information directly to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will update your confidential records.
Some have asked why there is a one time $10 fee for new NPF registrations now that dues are in effect. As a dues paying member of the RCMP, you receive all the benefits of NPF representation and the ultimate collective agreement. However, should you choose to be a registered member of the NPF, this brings further advantages such as: voting and/or running as a local representative, input on bargaining priorities and surveys, email updates and newsletters, access to the Rights and Responsibilities handbook and possibly most important of all, the ability to vote on the ratification of a future contract.
There is no requirement on any member of the RCMP to register with the NPF, it is a personal decision on how engaged and informed you would like to be.
We’re also hearing that some RCMP members have received their payroll stub for January 29 which does not reflect any dues deduction. We are looking into this now and will work to ensure that dues are deducted fairly and consistently in future. We’ll share the resolution on this once determined.
Thank you in advance for your patience as we work with the RCMP through the implementation of this new system.
