MPPAC Files Unfair Labour Practice Complaint

MPPAC has filed an unfair labour practice against our employer the RCMP. This was in response to the concerns raised by many of our membership regarding the unauthorized use of the Groupwise system by the Legal Fund as well as the NPF.

MPPAC has, in the past and continues today, to adhere to, and follow all rules as requested by our employer. By failing to take appropriate action to stop the NPF and Legal Fund from misusing RCMP resources, our employer is showing favourtism to one organization over others.

We have listened to your concerns and as thus we have taken steps to hold our employer accountable for their lack of action to ensure all groups have a level playing field.

We know that our membership expects their association to demonstrate that they are guided by principles of ethical, lawful and moral action. We are prepared to work with any other organization the embodies these same values and whose mandate includes membership choice and holds membership interest as their first priority. MPPAC will stay the course as we continue to work toward certification.
