Consultation on Bill C-7 (E-332)

We, the undersigned, members of the RCMP, our spouses, family members and citizens of Canada, call upon the President of the Treasury Board to modify Bill C-7 to ensure it establishes a fair collective bargaining framework for RCMP members. Specifically, we request that the President of the Treasury Board sustain the decision of the Standing Committee on Public Safety and National Security to remove those elements of Bill C-7 that modify RCMP members' current status under the Government Employees Compensation Act and would devolve their care to provincial workers' compensation schemes without negotiation or consultation.

We, the undersigned, also call upon the President of the Treasury Board, the Honourable Scott Brison and the Minister of Public Safety, the Honourable Ralph Goodale, to meet with and consult members of the RCMP who are directly affected by Bill C-7, it's conditions and amendments with the objective to allow members and it's chosen bargaining unit the ability to negotiate enhanced working conditions, training, equipment, pay, benefits and pension.
