Labour Relations Officer @ National Police Federation

Company: National Police Federation

Position: Labour Relations Officer

Location: Canada

The RCMP provides law enforcement in cities and regions from coast to coast, serving all Canadians. It is one of Canada’s most widely recognized symbols and its Members are a lasting source of national pride. Since the RCMP’s inception nearly 150 years ago, its Members have never been given the opportunity to benefit from formal and collective representation, a situation that is highly uncommon in the field of law enforcement. After a landmark ruling from the Supreme Court of Canada in 2015, Members of the RCMP were granted the right to form an association and collectively bargain with the federal government, resulting in the creation of the National Police Federation (NPF). The NPF represents Members of the RCMP from a fact-based, and balanced perspective to promote and enhance the rights of regular Members and reservists below the rank of Inspector. Today, the NPF is proud to represent over 20,000 Members of the RCMP and is the sole certified bargaining agent for regular members and reservists. The NPF is by far the largest police association in Canada and one of the largest in the world. We have a growing and committed team, who are inspired by the opportunity to create and deliver meaningful value and positive change for our Members across the country.
