Our Parks bargaining team reached a tentative agreement with the Agency February 16, 2018, which the team unanimously recommends. The Public Service Alliance of Canada will be holding an electronic vote for members of the Parks Canada Agency to ratify the tentative agreement between PSAC and Parks Canada.

Public Service Alliance of Canada-Agriculture Union members working for the Canadian Food Inspection Agency have ratified a new collective agreement in a series of votes held over the last two months across the country.

The four-year agreement – which expires on December 31, 2018 – contains no concessions and provides annual salary increases of 1.25 per cent for each year, plus other wage adjustments made for specific classifications.

Members working at Canada Post ratified a new collective agreement in a series of votes held in the last two months across the country.

The four-year agreement – which expires on August 31, 2020 – maintains our members’ job security and provides annual salary increases of 1.5 per cent; 1.5 per cent; 1.75 per cent and 1.8 per cent.

PSAC recently participated in a Statistics Canada consultation on the census and called on the government to include questions about LGBTQ2 people in Census 2021.

“It is very important that the 2021 Census include questions about sexual orientation and gender identity,” said Robyn Benson, PSAC National President. “The census needs to reflect the diversity in Canada. Given that this government has said they are committed to diversity and inclusion, this should be a priority for them.”

Our Parks bargaining team will be heading back to the table February 14th – 16th, 2018 in Ottawa. Our team will continue the work needed to reach a fair collective agreement.

The displays of membership solidarity throughout the country has strengthened our team. Your support sends a clear message to the Employer that Parks Canada workers support their bargaining team and are demanding the same rights and benefits that were achieved by the rest of the Federal Public Service.

Our PSAC/UCTE bargaining team met with the Employer January 29 - February 2 in Ottawa. While the pace was slow, we were able to exchange vital information with the Employer, negotiate terms, and sign off on additional language changes to the collective agreement.
