In the light of the above information, the adoption of the employer`s proposal would ensure consistency with other collective agreements under the CSSDA and would provide for an update of the old language. Most of our members are covered by agreements negotiated between the Board of Directors and our negotiator, the Public Utilities Alliance of Canada. The PSAC combines similar classification groups. The following lists indicate the classifications that are part of a given group. Please note that the Treasury Board is moving away from the “table” nomenclature and identifying employees as groups. The employer`s intention, with the repeal of the ITRP, was not to eliminate the ITD, but to break the link with the classification. The employer wanted to negotiate, in the last round of collective agreements, a new calculation method that would come into force with the signing of the last SV contract (June 14, 2017); However, the parties have not reached agreement on this issue. By negotiating in good faith, the Canadian government has reached 34 agreements in the current round of negotiations, covering more than 65,000 federal public service employees. These include 17 agreements with 11 bargaining agents representing CAP employees, as well as 17 agreements with four (4) bargaining agents representing workers working in separate agencies, including the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), the National Research Council (NRC) and the National Film Board (NFB).
Through judicious and good faith negotiations, the Government of Canada has concluded 34 agreements in this round of negotiations covering more than 65,000 federal public service employees.
