RCMP Retroactive Salary Increases

Year: 2022

Resolution

Whereas a first-ever collective bargaining agreement has been struck between the Government of Canada and the RCMP; and

Whereas that collective agreement contains five-years-worth of retroactive pay increases for RCMP members; and

Whereas municipalities had no part in the negotiations, and have no point been formally advised as to how large the increases are likely to be; and

Whereas municipalities have the least ability to pay of any level of government, and are legislatively incapable of running deficits; and

Whereas the costs of retroactive salary adjustments exceed $1,000,000 in some of cities; and

Whereas municipalities are already midway through their budget cycle;

 

Therefore be it resolved that SUMA advocate the Government of Canada to absorb all costs of the retroactive salary increases for RCMP officers.
