When will we vote on the deal?
Ratification votes are currently being held across the country. They will conclude on April 13th, 2017, after which the results will be announced.
When will the deal come into effect?
If a majority of members vote “yes” in the ratification vote, PSAC will meet with the employer to sign your new collective agreement. With the exception of wages, which are retroactive, the new negotiated provisions come into effect on date of signing, unless otherwise specified.
Who will get back pay (retroactive pay) for the negotiated economic increases?
The new collective agreement is retroactive to June 22, 2014, expiring June 21, 2018. This means that you are entitled to back pay for the period of time you were employed and a TC member from June 22, 2014.
