PSAC members from coast-to-coast-to-coast who are covered under four of the collective agreements with Treasury Board will be gathering in Ottawa, March 26-29, 2018 to elect bargaining teams and discuss proposals for the upcoming round of bargaining.
“PSAC’s number one priority is getting the best deal for our members,” said PSAC National President Robyn Benson. “We have a democratic process for prioritizing the proposals we bring to the bargaining table. The bargaining conference is a critical step in ensuring our members have their say.”
Over 100,000 federal public service workers are covered under the PA, TC, SV, and EB collective agreements.
How Treasury Board bargaining works
The current collective agreements for the four groups will all expire within the next six months:
- Program and Administrative Services (PA) group collective agreement expires on June 20, 2018
- Technical Services (TC) group collective agreement expires on June 21, 2018
- Education and Library Science (EB) group collective agreement expires on June 30, 2018
- Operational Services (SV) group collective agreement expires on August 4, 2018
PSAC will begin negotiating new collective agreements for all four groups shortly after the March bargaining conference. The chart below briefly outlines the complete process.
