In addition, the employer wishes to amend its proposal to clarify the employer`s commitment and commitment. The new language proposed by the employer specifies the steps required before they are able to negotiate wage lines under a subsequent collective agreement, based on the new employment assessment standards. The employer`s proposal also includes the agreement on the implementation of the collective agreement negotiated with the other 34 groups in the federal public service. If a worker receives less than seven (7) days in advance forty-eight (48) hours in advance through a change in his work schedule, the worker receives a bonus rate and half (1 1/2) for the work done during the first shift. The revision of the new schedule must be paid in due time. This worker retains his pre-arranged days of rest after the amendment or, if employed, those days of rest are compensated in accordance with the provisions of the collective agreement on overtime. TBS successfully entered into collective agreements for 17 CPA groups with 11 negotiators. These 17 collective agreements involve workers represented by some of the major bargaining partners, including PIPSC, CAPE and ACFO. The new TC Group collective agreement will cover a timetable for low to moderate economic growth.
In addition, there are negative risks associated with the economic outlook, which could lead to weaker labour markets and lower-than-expected wage growth. Given near-record interest rates in major industrialized countries and signs of a deteriorating global outlook, the focus will be on maintaining an affordable level of federal compensation for the country`s economic performance to enable the government to meet its fiscal commitments and better respond to future economic uncertainties. Following further negotiation meetings in the winter and spring of 2019, the PSAC submitted a request to the Board on May 7, 2019, to reactivate its application for the creation of a PIC to help the parties reach an agreement. Given the magnitude of the negotiator`s outstanding proposals, the employer requested that the PSAC consider a limited number of proposals taking into account the current collective bargaining landscape and the recent results of negotiations with other federal public service officials. The large number of proposals makes it difficult for the parties to focus their work on key priorities; a smaller number of proposals should significantly improve the likelihood of implementation. The employer respectfully proposes to the Commission to give direction in this regard and to order the parties to return to negotiations with a reduced number of proposals before the Commission`s report is published. The employer is proposing a four-year contract to allow for greater stability and predictability. This would be tantamount to repeating the duration of the last collective between the parties, which included the period from June 2014 to June 2018. In 2017, the parties entered into a 2014 collective agreement that expires a year later, in June 2018. This did not give the parties enough time to know the changes that were negotiated prior to the announcement of the negotiations, notified by psac for the current round of negotiations.
In addition, the 34 agreements contain the same Memorandum of Understanding on the implementation of collective agreements. The agreement defines the new method of calculating retroactive payments and provides for longer time frames for the implementation of the agreements.
