Please keep your contact information up-to-date through the members portal to continue to obtain information on the implementation of collective agreements and the Phoenix comparison. PSAC and the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) today signed the new collective agreement, which was ratified by PSAC-UTE members on September 29. The contract includes approximately 27,500 federal public service employees. PSAC has now signed collective agreements for nearly 120,000 federal public service employees. The new collective agreement will enter into force on November 13, 2020 and will apply from November 1, 2016 to October 31, 2021 included. From the date of signature, the rating agency has 180 days to implement the provisions of the collective agreement, including retroactive compensation. Details of the collective agreement are available on the PSAC-UTE website. The signing of the new collective agreement brings this round of negotiations to an end. We look forward to continuing to work closely with PSAC-UTE and to support the interests of workers and Canadians in future collective bargaining.
PSAC expects the Phoenix Treasury Board to pay general damages (i.e. the $2,500 package) within the 180-day transposition period mentioned above for the collective agreement. In addition, information on how current and former members who have suffered heavy losses from the Phoenix payroll system can claim additional compensation will be provided by the Treasury Board in the coming months. We will continue to urge the government to implement these regulations effectively.
