Last Wednesday, I provided an update on our progress in resolving public service pay issues.

We have now closed more than 50,000 employee cases in our backlog, which is close to 62% of our original workload. We are driving very hard toward our original target of October 31, and we believe the bulk of our backlog will be eliminated by this date. However, it is possible that we will have a number of cases that will require additional time.

As we open cases, we are seeing that a large number of those left in the backlog are complicated and require time-consuming manual calculations. We will have a dedicated team of our most experienced compensation advisors to quickly address any cases that may remain after October 31.

I can assure you that we are working extremely hard; our compensation advisors are regularly putting in evenings, weekends and holidays. Everyone is fully committed to the task at hand.

We are grateful for your patience and understanding.

I invite you to consult our website on a regular basis for the latest information.
