Register now at OTTAWA, ON, July 10, 2020 /CNW/CNW/ – In keeping with its obligation to enter into agreements that are fair to both workers and Canadians, the Government of Canada reached a preliminary agreement on July 9, 2020 with Canada`s largest federal public service union, the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC). If ratified, the Canadian government will have reached agreements for this round of negotiations, which will cover nearly 60 per cent of public servants. Bargaining Partners: Federal Government Dockyard Trades and Labour Council (Esquimalt) (West) (FGDTLC (W)) Collective Agreement Expiry Date: January 30, 2023 Dispute Resolution Mechanism: Conciliation Arbitration The Government remains committed to entering into collective agreements with all outstanding bargaining units for this round of negotiations, including those represented by the PSAC. Collective agreements will not be updated until they formally enter into force, after both parties have “signed” the document in question. Most of our members are covered by negotiated agreements between the Treasury Board and our negotiating partner, the Public Service Alliance of Canada. PSAC combines similar classification groups. The following lists indicate which classifications belong to a particular group. Please note that the Board of Directors moves away from the “Table” nomenclature and identifies employees as members of the group. PSAC and the Treasury Board today signed new collective agreements for the Program and Administrative (PA) and Technical Services (TC) groups, which were ratified by members on September 29.
The two collective agreements represent more than 80,000 employees of the federal public service. PSAC and The Treasury Board also signed the Phoenix damages agreement reached this summer. The AV, NR, RE, SH, SP, NRC (LS, IR, RO-RCO, TR), CRA (AFS), OSFI, CNSC (NUREG), NEB and NFB groups negotiated and ratified new collective agreements. Some groups continue their important work at the negotiating table. We stand in solidarity for a fair deal for every PIPSC member. PSAC expects the Phoenix Treasury Board to pay general damages (i.e. the $2,500 package) within the 180-day transposition period mentioned above for the collective agreement. In addition, information on how current and former members who have suffered heavy losses from the Phoenix payroll system can claim additional compensation will be provided by the Treasury Board in the coming months. We will continue to urge the government to implement these regulations effectively.
The three-year interim agreement applies to nearly 84,000 federal public servants represented and not represented in the Programs and Administrative Services (PA) group. The interim agreement would increase the economy and the group overall by 6.64 per cent over three years until July 2021, the smallest increase recorded last year, in line with the current economic environment.
