Collective Agreement Parks Canada 2021
The agreement expires on August 4, 2021. It includes salary increases of 2.8%, 2.2% and 1.35% for each contract year. In addition, there are changes in the regulation of maternity and parents, new types of leave and increases in various benefits. Congratulations to our Parks Canada members! On November 4, 2020, they successfully ratified a new collective agreement. The agreement, which covers the period from 2018 to 2021, has improved wages and working conditions. In the coming weeks, PSAC will meet with Parks and CFIA representatives to sign the new collective agreements. With the exception of monetary policy provisions, which apply retroactively, the new contractual conditions enter into force at the time of signature. We are pleased to inform you that the new collective agreement has been signed by the PSAC and the employer. PSAC will defend the use of 699 leaves for federal public sector workers during the pandemic at hearings before the Federal Public Service Labour Relations Board from August 30 to September 3, 2021. The new collective agreement for parks covers the period 2018-2021, while the new collective agreement for CFIA members covers the period 2019-2021.
All agreements provide for fair wages, no concessions and better working conditions. Operational Services (SV Group) continued negotiations with Treasury Board from September 21 to 23, 2021 and discussed fair wages, improved working conditions and work-life balance. All salary increases and retroactive amounts due to employees are implemented within 180 days of signing the collective agreement. All other provisions of the new collective agreement will come into force at the time of signature. PSAB members from the Parks Canada and Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) bargaining units voted in favour of their respective interim agreements. The two units represent more than 10,000 federal public sector employees who have gone out of their way to support Canadians during this pandemic. PSAC has now reached collective agreements for nearly 130,000 federal public service employees. PSAC negotiates the salaries and working conditions of employees in nearly 150 locals and hundreds of jobs in our region. See below for national and regional updates. PSAC submitted a salary proposal for more than 110,000 federal public sector employees, reflecting rising inflation rates in Canada. Together, the bargaining team and members will make the CRA a better place to work.
PSAC will inform its members of the signing of contracts. Please keep your contact information up to date via the Member Portal. The cost of living is rising rapidly across Canada, and PSAC members — and workers across the country — risk being left behind if we do not negotiate wages that keep pace with inflation. For this reason, our joint issues bargaining team is pushing for fair wage increases that keep pace with rising costs for more than 110,000 PSAC members. Parks Canada`s bargaining team has come together to prioritize the bargaining issues that will drive the next round of negotiations with the employer. Passion and commitment were on the agenda at the Parks Canada Agency`s National Virtual Negotiation Conference, which took place from May 31 to June 2. Members of the Border Services Division (FB) are still in contract negotiations with the Canada Border Services Agency. “I am proud of the elected members of our bargaining teams for their unwavering commitment during this round of talks,” said Chris Aylward, PSAC National President. Thanks to their hard work and the solidarity shown by thousands of members across the country, we were able to negotiate a fair agreement. We are now well positioned to build on these improvements in the next round of negotiations. Both employers have 180 days from the signing of the contract to implement wage increases, salary adjustments and allowances. As explained in the ratification packages, PSAC negotiated a lump sum payment of $500 for all contracts in light of this extended implementation period.
Visit the national website for specific updates on all ongoing national negotiations: Treasury Board, CRA, Parks Canada, CFIA and FB Group. Once the contract is signed, the employer has 180 days to implement salary increases, adjustments and allowances. Stay tuned for an update for now. Following the successful conclusion of negotiations for several Treasury Board bargaining groups, Parks Canada`s bargaining team will return to the table from August 24 to 28 to negotiate with Treasury Board officials. Prime Minister Trudeau has appointed his new cabinet, which is responsible for implementing the new government`s election promises. Their decisions will affect all PSAC members, particularly those working in the federal public service. For more information, please contact your local or RVP. The Liberal government`s recent budget implementation bill contains welcome, but limited, changes to the federal public service`s staffing. After months of waiting, the CRA denied our request for a review of phoenix damage tax liability. This is directly due to The Treasury Board`s refusal to provide the cra with a joint statement of facts. During discussions with Treasury Board from September 27 to 29, the Common Issues team focused on improving equity and remote work measures for more than 120,000 federal public sector employees. .
