As soon as it becomes available, we will provide the final text and full details of the TC Group preliminary agreement and agreement on common issues. Shortly thereafter, TC members are invited to participate in the online ratification votes. Voting details will be released as soon as possible. PSAC has reached an interim agreement that provides for a fair increase in wages, no concessions and improved working conditions for the nearly 10,000 members of the TC Group. Bargaining Partners: Federal Government Dockyard Trades and Labour Council (Esquimalt) (West) (FGDTLC (W)) Agreement expiry date: January 30, 2023 Dispute Resolution Mechanism: When PSACs negotiate collective agreements with “separate employers,” these contracts are also noted. The TC Bargaining team unanimously recommends that this agreement be accepted. More information will be provided to TC members in the near future. Bargaining Partners: UNIFOR Collective Agreement Expiry Date: June 30, 2022 Dispute Resolution Mechanism: Arbitration Memorandum of Understanding put in place by the Workplace Mental Health Task Force is also included in this agreement. The task force`s mandate includes identifying ways to reduce and eliminate stigma related to mental health problems, improving communication on mental health issues in the workplace, and implementing Canada`s national standard for psychological health and safety in the workplace.
The parties agreed on the agreement as early as 2015 during the negotiations and the task force has been working on it ever since. A committee is established to address child care needs. Better family leave, including extended family arrangements, was also negotiated. It is significant that the definition of family has been improved to include more family members. This means that members can use the relevant provisions of the collective agreement for more family members. Other improvements to the TC collective agreement include PSAC and Treasury Board having reached an interim agreement for the Technical Services (TC) group, which has more than 11,000 federal public service employees. The agreement contains important advances on “common issues” such as sick leave and staff adjustment, the details of which were drawn up last December by the Common Issues Committee. The TC negotiating team was also able to make significant improvements in monetary compensation, increase existing quotas and create new allowances for certain groups of members.
The PSAC negotiating team unanimously recommends the ratification of the interim agreement. Collective agreements will not be updated until they formally enter into force, after both parties have “signed” the document in question. Most of our members are covered by negotiated agreements between the Treasury Board and our negotiating partner, the Public Service Alliance of Canada. PSAC combines similar classification groups. The following lists indicate which classifications belong to a particular group. Please note that the Board of Directors moves away from the “Table” nomenclature and identifies employees as members of the group.
