Collective Bargaining Branch

February 15, 2017
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.
