Together with other interim agreements, the government has concluded 34 agreements that, if ratified and signed, will apply to more than 65,000 civil servants. The other interim arrangements are expected to enter into force in the coming weeks and months, once negotiators have completed their ratification process and both sides have signed the agreements. The AV, NR, RE, SH, PS, NRC (LS, IR, RO-RCO, TR), CRA (AFS), OSFI, CNSC (NUREG), NEB and NFB groups have negotiated and ratified new collective agreements. Some groups continue their important work at the negotiating table. We stand in solidarity for a fair agreement for each MEMBER of the CSPIP. “I am pleased that PA employees, many of whom have supported important services to Canadians during the pandemic, have reached a new preliminary agreement and that all employees represented by PSAC are receiving compensation for the burden the Phoenix pay system had on their lives. This is proof of our commitment to reaching fair and equitable agreements taking into account the current economic and fiscal environment. The Government of Canada continues to negotiate in good faith with negotiators and today signed collective agreements with the Association of Canadian Financial Agents and the Professional Association of Foreign Service Agents. As a first step, the union granted all employers an extended additional period of time to implement the collective agreements, which doubled the usual period from 75 to 150 days. The agreement also provides for general compensation for current and former PSAC employees. At the same time, the government also reached a preliminary agreement with the PSAC to compensate employees for damages caused by Phoenix`s wage system and the late implementation of the 2014 collective agreements.
