Subject to ratification, the Government of Canada has entered into agreements covering 60 per cent of public servants for this round of negotiations. Due to the implementation of our new collective agreements and retroactive compensation, we anticipate a delay, but the employer is committed to assessing these priorities in order to address Phoenix`s damages as quickly as possible. PSAC and the Treasury Board today signed new collective agreements for the EB and SV groups. The formal signing of the agreements now means that new contractual conditions come into force, with the exception of retroactive monetary provisions. The Ministry of Finance now has 180 days to implement wage increases, wage adjustments and allowances. As explained in the contract ratification kits, PSAC negotiated a lump sum payment of $500 for members of these new contracts, given this expanded implementation schedule, which is normally 90 days. «I am pleased that PA employees, many of whom supported critical services to Canadians during the pandemic, have a new interim agreement and that all employees represented by PSAC are being compensated for the toll that the Phoenix payroll system has had on their lives. This is proof of our commitment to fair and equitable agreements, taking into account the current economic and fiscal environment. The AV, NR, RE, SH, SP, NRC (LS, IR, RO-RCO, TR), CRA (AFS), OSFI, CNSC (NUREG), NEB and NFB groups negotiated and ratified new collective agreements. Some groups continue their important work at the negotiating table.

We stand in solidarity for a fair deal for every PIPSC member. The three-year interim agreement applies to nearly 10,000 federal agents represented and not represented in the Technical Services Group (TC). The interim agreement would increase the economy and the group overall by 6.64 per cent over three years until July 2021, the smallest increase recorded last year, in line with the current economic environment. New provisions on care leave, extending parental leave and up to 10 days of domestic violence leave are also included in the interim agreement.
