Civilians working on military bases will go on strike on Monday

About 500 civilians who work for the Non-Public Funds (NPF) at military bases in Ontario and Quebec planned to move out on Monday.

The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and the Union of National Defense Employees (UNDE) served the employer with a strike notice earlier this week. The two trade union organizations claim that the employer refused this to strive to clarify the main points of contention.

The union's main demands concern salaries, particularly a pan-Canadian salary scale. It says in a press releasePSAC points out that these are the lowest paid workers in the federal public service.

People who work for non-public funds provide essential support to military members and their families, but earn little more than minimum wage and often have to find a second job to make ends meet.said Chris Aylward, national president of thePSAC.

The members of the NPF are part of the public service, he continuesPSACbut they are significantly underpaid compared to other federal employees doing the same type of work.
