PSAC-UTE members ratify new agreement with Canada Revenue Agency

PSAC-UTE members working at Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) have voted overwhelmingly in favour of their tentative agreement, with 88% of ballots cast in favour of the new contract. 

Together, PSAC members held the line during one of the largest national strikes in Canada’s history, securing fair wages that close the gap with inflation, the strongest remote work language in the country, better job security, and safer and more inclusive workplaces. 

The four-year collective agreement for over 35,000 PSAC-UTE members expires on October 31, 2025. 

Next Steps  

In the weeks to come, PSAC will meet with CRA representatives shortly to sign the new collective agreement. With the exception of monetary provisions, which are retroactive, new contract terms come into effect on the date of signing. 

The employer has 180 days from the signing of the contract to implement wage increases, wage adjustments and allowances. If CRA is unable to meet this deadline, there is a lump sum of $200 payable if the outstanding amount is more than $500 owed. 

PSAC will update members when the agreement is signed. Please contact your regional office to make sure your contact information is up to date.
