SV members ratify new agreement with Treasury Board

PSAC members in the Operational Services (SV) bargaining unit have voted overwhelmingly in favour of their tentative agreement, with 90% 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, winning wage increases that prevent workers from falling further behind, new and improved remote work language, better job security, and safer and more inclusive workplaces. 

The four-year collective agreement for 10,000 members in the SV group expires on August 4, 2025.

Next Steps  

In the coming weeks, PSAC will meet with Treasury Board 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 Treasury Board 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.
