September 16, 2016 – TC Negotiations Update: Still No Agreement on Wages and Other Issues During the 2014 round of negotiations, the parties agreed to abolish the Penalty Factor (PFA) and the Offender Supervision Allowance (OSA) and created the Correction Specific Duty Allowance (CSSDA). According to the employer, the introduction of a public safety allowance would result in an overlap in allowances with the CSSDA and would amount to a return to previous payments of AFP and OSA negotiated in the last round of collective agreements. In addition, the eligibility criteria for the proposed public safety allowance are not clearly defined; In its current form, it could be a payment to each employee in the public safety portfolio, regardless of the particular circumstances faced by the employee. 34 While I accept the well-said arguments of the employer`s counsel, my interpretation of section 6.2 may relate to other parts of the CEF that deal with the employer`s decision to offer CCAs or other options, I believe that it is more difficult to negotiate a new section smoothly and to include it in a long-standing agreement than to harm other secondary sectors of the CEF. The employer already grants 11 statutory holidays to its employees. This provision of the PA collective agreement is similar to all other CPA collective agreements, including those recently concluded. The 11 days in total are competitive with provinces, territories, municipalities and private sector agreements. Section 14.14 is a new provision that was negotiated in the last round and is supplemented by Schedule K of the collective agreement, which provides more detail on the implementation of the cost recovery bargaining agent leave. An excerpt from the appendix is reproduced below: July 13, 2017 – TB collective agreements, which are now published to address differences between the aforementioned collective agreements and the working conditions of workers who are transferred by other public sector collective units during the entry into force of collective agreements. The 34 agreements recently negotiated with the CPA and the agency`s self-employed groups contain the aforementioned language of the employer, which allows workers to take unpaid leave so that they can benefit from the expanded benefits of EI health care workers. The EU proposes that the new collective agreement expire on 20 June 2021. This memorandum expires with the issuance of the new directive or (expiration of the collective agreement), depending on what happens first. The purpose of this memorandum is to implement the agreement between the employer and the Alliance on the compliance with the meeting leave of certain members of the Translation Bureau staff.
The employer proposes to clarify the non-specific and ambiguous formulations of the collective agreement. The employer`s proposal is consistent with current practice. Given the ongoing compensation and human resources systems and persistent wage management challenges, the Government of Canada does not have the capacity to implement agreements on a different basis than negotiated agreements. Approval of another implementation process and, in the meantime, would mean negotiations in bad faith on behalf of the government, because it would accept something that it would not be able to complete. 113 A collective agreement that applies to a unit of collective agreements – with a unit other than a bargaining unit under Section 238.14 – cannot, directly or indirectly, amend or remove any existing employment clause or condition or establish a new employment clause or condition if the parties agree that meaningful consultation on the development of employment assessment standards must take place within 30 days of the signing of this collective agreement. New employment assessment standards will be finalized by December 30, 2017, so that TB ministers can consider the goal of negotiating new payrolls for these employment assessment standards under the subsequent collective agreement.
