Further to the email of December 10, 2019 regarding the payment of the $400 lump sum:

Public Services and Procurement Canada (PSPC) has informed the NRC that it has resolved the issues associated with the payment of the $400 lump sum negotiated as part of the new collective agreements.

The $400 payment is a one-time payment that was to be paid to all employees except PE, FI and MGT on the pay of December 11, 2019. Unfortunately, technical difficulties meant that some employees did not receive it while others had deductions such as benefits and union dues taken which should not have been.  PSPC advises that:

  • Employees who are entitled to receive the $400 but did not, will receive it on the pay of December 24, 2019
  • Employees who received the $400 but who had general deductions such as union dues, parking and  charitable donations (Government of Canada Workplace Charitable Campaign or GCWCC) will be refunded the deductions on the pay of December 24, 2019
  • Employees who received the $400 but who had benefit deductions such as Public Service Health Care Plan (PSHCP), Death Benefits (DB) or Public Service Management Insurance plan (PSMIP)  will be refunded the deductions on the pay of January 8, 2020.

PSPC thanks NRC employees for their patience. NRC employees with questions of or concerns about the payment of the $400 may reach out to Compensation Services upon return from December shutdown.
