Our bargaining team met with the Agency November 16 - 17.
We tabled a wage proposal that calls for annual increases of 3% in each year of a three-year agreement.
Other proposals tabled
- Proposal to return Parks Canada to the National Joint Council
- New language to enshrine Leave with Income Averaging, Self-Funded Leave, and Pre-Retirement Leave into the collective agreement.
- New language regarding the Joint Learning Program.
Short term disability
Back in June, the Agency tabled a revised Short-Term Disability proposal to replace our current sick leave provisions. We rejected this proposal in June and it was not discussed during this round.
Upcoming bargaining dates
Negotiations are tentatively set to resume on January 30, 2017.
Our bargaining team thanks you for your ongoing patience and support.
