SV group

Members of the SV bargaining team

Janson Labond (research officer), Frank Nitschmann, Bill Ryan, John Wilson (negotiator), Marcelo Lazaro, Blair Winger, Rosemarie Smith-Gimblett, Melvin Dureen and Serge Desbiens. Biographical notes.

Background

To help SV members interpret the significance of the data collected, PSAC research staff have prepared this report, entitled SV Compensation Survey 2015: The PSAC’s analysis of the results. Since the HayGroup report only reflects raw data collected from outside employers, it is this PSAC report which we expect will be of greatest interest to members looking for an interpretation of the survey results, and how the results will be used in bargaining.
