The employer proposes to recreate the same improvements or equivalent improvements for members of the PA bargaining unit, which would provide for a fair and reasonable collective agreement. The evidence contained in this mandate does not indicate that the AP Group will receive more than the model defined in the 34 agreements reached during this round of negotiations. Pension: Based on employer contributions and a 50:50 cost-sharing ratio between the employer and the employee. Rates are calculated by the addition of the pension rates of group 1 and group 2 2 2018 in proportion to the size of each level (or group) population. THE estimated CAR contribution rate for 2018 applies if applicable. The employer`s proposal to remove the word “cash” from the definition of the training allowance is a simple administrative change in recognizing that such a payment is not made in “cash”. The same proposal and justification apply to the definition of the transitional support measure and are consistent with the terminology proposed elsewhere in the collective agreement. Unlike the provisional agreement for negotiations on the Ministry of Finance, which PSAC members are expected to vote on in the near future, the Phoenix Damage Agreement required ratification by the NATIONAL PSAC COUNCIL. On 3 July 2020, the Council voted unanimously in favour of the offer. Note: The amendments to this article will come into effect on April 1, following the signing date of the agreement. The 34 agreements recently negotiated for the CPA and individual agencies contain the language proposed by the employer. Comparisons also include targeted improvements worth about 1% over the life of the agreements. For most of the 34 groups, these improvements are in the form of two-year wage adjustments: 0.8% in 1 year and 0.2% in 2.
These include the Economics and Social Services (EC) group, represented by the Canadian Professional Workers Association (CAPE), the Financial Management Group (FI), represented by the Association of Canadian Financial Officers (ACFO), and the Architecture, Engineering and Land Survey (NR), represented by the Professional Service Institute of Canada (PIPSC). For some other groups, including the Audit, Trade and Purchasing (AV) groups, the health services (HS) represented by PIPSC and the External Services Group (FS), represented by the Professional Federation of External Action Officials (PAFSO), the parties agreed to allocate the 1% differently depending on the specific circumstances of each group; However, the total value of these targeted adjustments should not exceed 1%. Other groups, such as the FS group, which is represented by PAFSO, received different targeted measures to meet their specific needs, but the total value of these specific improvements was about 1% during the four years of their agreements. Members of the PA group would benefit from the following increases: From the day the PA collective agreement was signed, the employer committed to increasing the monthly funding of PSAC – TBS JLP by a percentage corresponding to core annual economic growth. The employer argues that the PA group is not behind the market with respect to this benefit under other collective agreements. The negotiator did not provide sufficient justification for this proposal. On June 19, 2017, Bill C-7 was adopted in response to the Supreme Court of Canada`s 2015 decision recognizing the constitutional right of RCMP members to participate.
