With a victory for Parks Canada members, PSAC has reached a preliminary agreement that provides for more competitive economic parity with basic public service, no concessions and improved working conditions and job security. The tax office has 180 days from the date of the signing of the new collective agreement: if a worker opts for the extended parental leave option under the EI and begins his leave before the signing of the collective agreement, he receives an allowance equal to 93% of the weekly salary for all weeks during which he is on parental leave and receives up to 37 weeks of EE. If the worker remains on extended parental leave, the allowance expires after a maximum of 37 weeks. However, the egg will continue until the worker returns to work or until the ei benefit stops depleting. A three-year contract will allow PSAC, as the main bargaining partner, to set the pace of public service negotiations in the next round of negotiations. PSAC members in the Operational Services (SV) rate unit voted in favour of their interim agreement. The unit represents nearly 10,000 federal public service employees who went beyond Canadians during this pandemic to support Canadians. In the coming weeks, PSAC will meet with representatives of the Department of Finance to sign the new collective agreement. With the exception of retroactive monetary provisions, new contractual terms come into effect on the day of signing. During each round of negotiations, the negotiating team must abandon certain proposals in order to reach a fair collective agreement.
In cases where workers are subject to different collective agreements that do not have the same language, each worker is subject to the provisions of his collective agreement for eligibility and the amount of parental allowance. The new parental allowance provisions come into effect at the time the collective agreement is signed. The date of a worker`s parental allowance is the date the worker enters parental leave, regardless of the time of application or leave authorization. Once it is available, we will provide the final text and full details of the interim agreement. Shortly thereafter, Parks Canada members are invited to participate in the online ratification votes. OTTAWA, ON, July 10, 2020 /CNW/CNW/ – In keeping with its obligation to enter into agreements that are fair to both workers and Canadians, the Government of Canada reached a preliminary agreement on July 9, 2020 with Canada`s largest federal public service union, the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC). If ratified, the Canadian government will have reached agreements for this round of negotiations, which will cover nearly 60 per cent of public servants. At the same time, the government reached a preliminary agreement with PSAC to compensate employees for damage caused by the Phoenix compensation system and the late implementation of the 2014 collective agreements. If this compensation agreement is approved, this compensation agreement will apply to the 140,000 PSAC members paid by the Phoenix payment system.
