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. 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. “I am pleased that PA employees, many of whom supported critical services to Canadians during the pandemic, have a new interim agreement and that all employees represented by PSAC are being compensated for the toll that the Phoenix payroll system has had on their lives. This is proof of our commitment to fair and equitable agreements, taking into account the current economic and fiscal environment. The sector also leads the collective bargaining process, develops bargaining strategies and advises staff and human resources departments in departments and agencies of the central public administration on collective bargaining and collective agreements. The formal signing of the agreements now means that new contractual conditions come into force, with the exception of retroactive monetary provisions. The Ministry of Finance now has 180 days to implement wage increases, wage adjustments and allowances.
As explained in the contract ratification kits, PSAC negotiated a lump sum payment of $500 for members of these new contracts, given this expanded implementation schedule, which is normally 90 days.

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. 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. At the same time, the government reached a preliminary agreement with PSAC to compensate employees for damage caused by the Phoenix compensation system and the late implementation of the 2014 collective agreements. If this compensation agreement is approved, this compensation agreement will apply to the 140,000 PSAC members paid by the Phoenix payment system. Please keep your contact information up-to-date through the members portal to continue to obtain information on the implementation of collective agreements and the Phoenix comparison.
