The Public Service Alliance of Canada will be holding an electronic vote for members of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to ratify the tentative agreement between PSAC and CFIA.

The voting period will open on January 22 and close February 22, 2018 at 12 p.m.

Meetings will be held by webinar for all members, in addition to face-to-face meetings organized in some regions.

More information about meeting dates and locations in your area will be posted shortly. As per Regulation 15 of the PSAC Constitution, all members must attend a meeting – either by webinar or in-person – in order to cast a vote.

The Public Service Alliance of Canada is asking the Federal Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board to declare that the federal government has failed to meet the implementation deadline for the PA, SV, TC and EB collective agreements and has violated its obligations under the law and the collective agreements.

Recovery of net pay vs gross pay

PSAC has demanded the government only recover net pay from employees who have received overpayments because of Phoenix, instead of requiring the reimbursement of gross pay.

The employer’s response, however, falls disappointingly short of the union’s demand. 

Overpayments must be reported by January 19, 2018

December 11 marked the first meeting of our newly elected NAV CANADA bargaining team. They met to finalize the membership’s demand package.

Negotiations with the employer took place during the week of December 12 - 15, 2017.

Throughout the week, our bargaining team exchanged proposal packages with NAV CANADA representatives. Non-monetary language found in various articles were signed off and the team is pleased with the progress to date.

On November 10, 2017, after two years of negotiations, our bargaining team finally reached a tentative agreement with CFIA. Our bargaining team unanimously recommends ratification of our new agreement.

If ratified, the settlement  will improve  our members'  working  conditions  in several  ways. These improvements are the product of the hard work and dedication of both our team and the membership  over the course of this round of bargaining.
