Now that PSAC/UTE’s agreement with the CRA has been ratified, our settlement is scheduled to receive cabinet approval on October 20. Consequently the parties have agreed to October 25 as the date of signing for our contract.
The date of signing is the date upon which our contract takes effect, and impacts eligibility for the one-time lump sum payment. Also the CRA has a maximum of 150 days from that date to adjust employees’ wages and pay out retroactive payments.
If you have any questions about the contract, speak with your Local President, or visit our FAQ page for more information.
