At the PIC hearings, the government doubled down on numerous regressive positions it had taken during talks to renew collective agreements for PSAC members.
The Public Interest Commission (PIC) hearings for the Program and Administrative Services (PA) and common issues tables wrapped up this weekend.
After unrelenting pressure, including legal action by PSAC, the government has finally completed the implementation of past collective agreements for all Treasury Board (TB) workers.
Negotiations for new collective agreements for most members began over a year ago, but the government has repeatedly refused our reasonable proposals for a just settlement.
After more than ten months of bargaining defined by delays, insulting offers and frustratingly slow progress towards a fair contract, PSAC’s bargaining teams are giving the government one last chance at the negotiating table.
For weeks, PSAC members across the country have been ramping up pressure on the Trudeau government to deliver a fair deal when bargaining resumes later this month.
PSAC only saw small movement from the government despite a rapidly closing window for Prime Minister Trudeau to deliver on his commitment to public service workers.
The clock is ticking for the Trudeau Liberals as PSAC’s four bargaining teams representing 90,000 workers covered by Treasury Board resume negotiations with the government between March 19 and 21.
PSAC will be resuming face-to-face bargaining sessions from February 12 to14 on behalf of the 90,000 federal public service workers covered by Treasury Board bargaining.
PSAC will be ramping up pressure on Treasury Board so that it returns to the bargaining table with a proper and full response to the members’ bargaining proposals.
