Collective Agreement Psac 2019

Filed under: Uncategorized — Chris Chaten @ 3:20 PM

Interim collective agreements reached this week by the federal Department of Finance with some federal unions will not stand in the way of adequate compensation for PSAC members working for the federal government and its authorities,” said Chris Aylward, PSAC National President. Negotiator: Federal Government Dockyard Trades and Labour Council (Esquimalt) (West) (FGDTLC (W)) Collective Agreement Expiry Date: January 30, 2023 Dispute Resolution Mechanism: Arbitration Negotiations on new collective agreements for most members began more than a year ago, but the government has repeatedly rejected our reasonable proposals for a fair deal. Psac was forced to declare the negotiating bag after the government failed to address members` main concerns and is awaiting several hearings from the Public Interest Commission. In addition, psAC rejected the federal government`s agreement with other federal unions, which provided only 5 days off to compensate for the Phoenix debacle. Like the Phoenix Compensation Agreement, which was co-developed in 2019 by the federal government and other negotiators, this agreement includes measures to help those who had lost financial costs and capital income and faced personal and financial hardship. The agreement also provides for general compensation for current and former PSAC employees. If the PSAC reaches a provisional agreement, the union will immediately begin the ratification process to allow members to vote for or against the new agreement. Negotiator: UNIFOR Date of expiry of the collective agreement: 30. June 2022 Dispute Settlement Mechanism: PSAC members voted in favour of their respective preliminary agreements. Any agreement reached by the PA group in the coming days will set an important precedent for all other PSAC units, from which they will return to the negotiating table after the elections. “I am pleased that PA employees, many of whom have supported important services to Canadians during the pandemic, have reached a new preliminary agreement and that all employees represented by PSAC are receiving compensation for the burden the Phoenix pay system had on their lives.

This is proof of our commitment to reaching fair and equitable agreements taking into account the current economic and fiscal environment. The three-year interim agreement applies to nearly 84,000 federal employees represented and unpresented in the Program and Administrative Services (PA) group. The provisional agreement would provide for overall economic and group increases of 6.64 percent over three years, ending in July 2021, with the smallest increase last year, in line with the current economic environment. New provisions regarding nurses` leave, extended parental leave and up to 10 days of domestic violence leave are also included in the provisional agreement. . . .
