Failing to meet deadlines
During this round of bargaining, the employer was expected to come to the table ready to negotiate with new classification standards and job descriptions for the PA group. The employer has failed to meet that obligation, which has led to the filing of the policy grievance.
PSAC’s long-standing objectives on classification reform continue to be:
- replacement of the current, very outdated Treasury Board classification system;
- development of job evaluation standards and job descriptions that reflect current work realities and that are pay equity compliant.
Now that collective bargaining has resumed we will be addressing this issue at the negotiation table in addition to enforcing the existing contract.
