Parties agree on arbitration process
Our PSAC/UTE Bargaining Team met with the Canada Revenue Agency on May 3 and 4 to discuss wage increases for 2014 and 2015, consistent with our collective agreement signed last year. Unfortunately we were unable to reach an agreement over the two days and therefore proceeded to next step under our contract and the law – to discuss and agree upon an arbitration process.
After several meetings and on-going correspondence between the parties, we agreed upon an arbitration process in July. We are now in the process of selecting an arbitrator. Once that’s completed the arbitrator will set dates to hear our dispute, and will subsequently render a decision.
