Our bargaining team will meet again with Parks Canada this month to resume negotiations for a new collective agreement. Our team will meet with the Agency on March 28, 29 and 30. We will provide a bargaining update at the end of this session. Thank you for your ongoing patience and support!

Due to scheduling conflicts, our bargaining session with Parks Canada scheduled for January 2017 has been postponed to March 28 to 30, 2017. We will have a bargaining update at the end of that session.

Our bargaining team met with Canada Post Corporation from February 21 to 23 and January 17 and 18. At our last session, we spent some time clarifying our proposals to the employer. We tabled our proposal to have all members enrolled in the defined benefit component of the CPC Pension Plan. We believe that all PSAC-UPCE members should have retirement security. We also tabled proposals to improve family leave provisions.

On December 17, 2016, after two-and-a-half years of negotiations, our PA bargaining team finally reached a tentative agreement with Treasury Board. Our bargaining team unanimously recommends ratification of our new agreement. If ratified, the settlement will improve our members’ working conditions in several ways. These improvements are the product of the hard work and dedication of both our team and the membership over the course of this round of bargaining.

As part of our ongoing campaign for respect for the border services group, PSAC filed for a Public Interest Commission (PIC) for the Border Services group on February 8, 2017. The group’s critical public safety duties deserve the same recognition given to other law enforcement officers.

Our PSAC/CIU bargaining team for the FB group spent 3 days in mediation with Treasury Board and CBSA this past week. We made no progress on our key priorities for this round of bargaining. We enforce the law. It’s time we were treated accordingly. Compensation Our position reflects wage parity with the RCMP. Management has rejected this proposal and instead tabled the PA wage settlement. This is unacceptable to us as it does not address our wage disparity with the broader law enforcement community.
