The dates of the negotiations for the SV Group will be announced in the coming weeks. Negotiations for the EB, TC and Canada Revenue Agency groups will resume next week. The standard parental leave under ISIS is 35 weeks, which must be taken over a period of 52 weeks. Under the collective agreement, a worker is entitled to an allowance of up to 37 weeks. This would cover the waiting time of one week and an additional week. The new agreement will also include five weeks of paternity leave under the IPQP or an additional five weeks of shared parental leave under ISIS. Workers who start their parental leave before the signing of the new collective agreement are subject to the remuneration provisions of the old collective agreement, and those who start parental leave on or after the date of signature are subject to the remuneration rules of the new collective agreement. In a victory for public service employees who have gone out of their way to support Canadians during this pandemic, PSAC reached a preliminary agreement providing for fair wages, no concessions and improved working conditions for the 70,000 members of the PA group, as well as common issues within the Department of Finance. Members of the PA group would receive the following salary increases: Negotiators: UNIFOR Collective Agreement Expiry Date: June 30, 2022 Dispute Resolution Mechanism: Arbitration Full details on agreements for both the PA Group and for common topics, as well as the final text will soon be published by PSAC. PA members will also be briefed in the coming days on the details of the electronic ratification vote.
A three-year agreement will allow the PSAC, the first negotiator, to set the pace of negotiations for the public service in the next round of negotiations. Negotiator: Federal Government Dockyard Trades and Labour Council (Esquimalt) (West) (FGDTLC (W)) Collective Agreement Expiry Date: January 30, 2023 Dispute Resolution Mechanism: Arbitration Due to the work required to implement our new collective agreements and retroactive compensation, we anticipate a delay, but the employer has committed to assess these priorities to address the damage caused by Phoenix as quickly as possible. OTTAWA, ON, July 10, 2020 / NCCR / – In keeping with its obligation to enter into fair agreements for both staff and Canadians, the Canadian government adopted, on July 9, 2020, a preliminary agreement was reached with Canada`s largest public service union, the Public Services Alliance of Canada (PSAC). If ratified, the Canadian government will have reached agreements covering nearly 60 per cent of public officials for this round of negotiations. Unlike the preliminary agreement for the Board of Directors` negotiations, which is to be put to the vote of PSAC members in the near future, Phoenix`s damages agreement had to be ratified by the PSAC`s National Board of Directors. The Board of Directors voted unanimously on the offer on July 3, 2020. The employee is subject to the provisions of the collective agreement under which she begins her parental leave, regardless of the date of the maternity leave. Workers must opt for standard or extended leave before the start of parental leave, and once this decision is made, it is irrevocable. Parents who were already on leave at the time the new contract was signed cannot opt for another option.
“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. Please note that this new parental allowance is part of the common problem solving for all our cash groups. The amendments apply only to parental allowances. Maternity benefit remains unchanged. . . .
