PSAC is gearing up to mobilize TC members and put pressure on Treasury Board after they refused to respond to the TC team’s
In a significant victory, PSAC has closed the pay gap between Engineering and Scientific Support (EG) members in the Technical Services (TC) group and EGs at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) once and for all after a successful arbitration ruling on January 6, 2022. After implementation, the new maximum rate for EGs will be 3.3% higher.
The Technical Services (TC) bargaining team focused their time on compensation during the most recent round of bargaining with Treasury Board, November 8–10, 2021.
Following the last round of negotiations, the TC bargaining team negotiated an arbitration process that would allow for members in the EG classification group to continue the push for pay parity with their counterparts at the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA). EGs in the TC group are currently paid 3.3% less than EGs at CFIA.
After months of preparation, bargaining teams for the PA, SV, TC and EB groups are now gearing up for their first meetings with the employer in June.
