PSAC-CIU members now have access to their newly negotiated contract terms following the official signing of the Border Services (FB) tentative agreement December 1. Highlights include better protections against excessive discipline in the workplace, leave improvements, paid meal compensation for uniformed officers and other allowances.
The new contract is a four-year agreement from 2018-2022 with a total increase in wages of over eight per cent. Canada Border Services Agency has 180 days from the date of signing the new collective agreement to implement the new pay rates, provide retro pay for the time elapsed since the expiry of the previous agreement, and provide $500 to all FB members as a penalty for the extended implementation timelines.
An updated collective agreement will be available in the coming weeks. In the meantime, refer to the ratification kit for the full text of the agreement and revised wage grid.
