Labour Relations Officer @ National Police Federation
Company: National Police Federation
Position: Labour Relations Officer
The National Police Federation is a new and evolving union with a dynamic team of elected Board Directors and professional staff who are passionately committed to building an organization that provides much-needed and valued service and supports to front-line RCMP Members. Like many new organizations, National Police Federation is creating and expanding infrastructure and supports in the areas of Member Services, Government Relations, Legal and Labour Relations Counsel, Communications, IT Services, Finance and Administration with Member needs and priorities at the forefront.
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.
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.
