New collective agreement with CRA signed

PSAC/UTE and the CRA signed our new collective agreement this morning. The contract is now in effect. The CRA has a maximum of 150 days from today to adjust employees’ wages, pay out retroactive payments and the one-time lump sum.

At the signing, the CRA reiterated its commitment to meeting its contractual obligations to pay out retroactivity within the timelines prescribed by our contract. The employer also indicated that employees could expect the $700 lump-sum bonus to be paid out ahead of retro payments. Lastly, the Agency committed to keeping the union updated every two weeks as to the progress of getting union members paid out.
