Federal unions are telling Ottawa to manage its expectations for the new performance management system.

The Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC) recently filed a policy grievance on behalf of 17 unions to challenge key provisions of the government’s Directive on Performance Management for public service employees.

The grievance — filed with the Public Service Labour Relations Board — argues the directive is in violation of collective agreements.
