Members whose hours of work were changed in 2014 during bargaining with Treasury Board have won back pay and benefits after the union filed a complaint. The Federal Public Service Labour Relations Act, like other labour laws in Canada, contains a provision that freezes the terms and conditions contained in collective agreements on the day that notice to bargain a new agreement is given. The freeze continues until a new agreement is either negotiated or awarded by an arbitrator, or until a strike takes place.
