FB group: Next steps to ratify the tentative agreement 

The FB bargaining team secured a tentative agreement with CBSA and Treasury Board August 6 that makes CBSA a better, safer place to work. The agreement was possible because of the dedication and perseverance of the FB bargaining team and members across the country who took work-to-rule action to send a clear message to the government.

Now that we have a tentative agreement, there are a few more steps to take before the new collective agreement can take effect.

Ratification kit

A full explanation of the new agreement, and a copy of the new language, is currently being finalized and will be distributed to members shortly.

PSAC-CIU's bargaining team unanimously recommends ratification of the new agreement.

Ratification votes

PSAC-CIU will provide short, 10-minute mandatory virtual presentations to go through the details of the new tentative agreement, followed by an opportunity for FB members to ask questions. After the presentation, members will be able to cast their ballot.

The PSAC Constitution requires all members attend an information session before they vote for a new collective agreement.

The meeting schedule is being organized and will be announced in the next few weeks. Meetings will be held virtually and offered in both official languages.

If you have any questions, please contact your branch president or your PSAC regional office.
