“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 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. New provisions on care leave, extending parental leave and up to 10 days of domestic violence leave are also included in the interim agreement. Access our summary of all the new provisions of the collective agreement. The European collective agreement applies to federal employees of the Economics and Social Sciences (EC) group. We are negotiating the agreement with the Labour Council of Canada, which is covered by the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations Act. The last contract was signed in August 2019 and is valid until June 21, 2022. In 2017, the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations and Employment Board decided that civilian members of the RCMP should be considered public service officers under the ESS classification, which do essentially work similar to those of EC officials.
When this decision comes into force, CADRE workers will be covered by the collective agreement and will be considered part of the EC`s bargaining unit. In the meantime, existing RCMP conditions continue to apply to SSE members. However, these members can benefit from a number of CAPE benefits, including assistance in filing complaints and representation in discussions with the Ministry of Finance secretariat.

January, 2023 Dispute Resolution Mechanism: Conciliation OTTAWA, ON, July 10, 2020 /CNW/ – In keeping with its obligation to enter into fair agreements for 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. Like the Phoenix compensation agreement, jointly developed by the federal government and other negotiators in 2019, the agreement includes measures to help those who have had unreought financial costs and capital income and who have experienced personal and financial difficulties.
