Access our summary of all the new provisions of the collective agreement. The most recent European collective agreement contains updated provisions: the collective agreement applies to federal employees of the Economics and Social Sciences (EC) group. We are negotiating the agreement with the Labour Council of Canada, which is covered by the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations Act. If persons in management or confidentiality positions are employed in a professional category and at the professional level under a collective agreement and their rates of pay have not been set by the tax office, they are paid at the rates of pay set in the collective agreement. I have just received a copy of a TBS memo confirming the above notes (it is november 7, 2019, but the effective date is July 31, 2019). It appears that the unrepresented PE group (mainly HR consultants) is now being treated as ESCs for the purposes of its terms of employment. In the past, they were treated as if they were covered by the PA agreement. The last contract was signed in August 2019 and is valid until June 21, 2022. Please respect the AV collective agreement for pay rates. Personal vacation needs without pay can be taken twice in a career (according to the PA agreement, it is only once); In 2017, the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations and Employment Board decided that civilian members of the RCMP should be considered public service officers under the ESS classification, which do essentially work similar to those of EC officials. When this decision comes into force, CADRE workers will be covered by the collective agreement and will be considered part of the EC`s bargaining unit.
In the meantime, existing RCMP conditions continue to apply to SSE members. However, these members can benefit from a number of CAPE benefits, including assistance in filing complaints and representation in discussions with the Ministry of Finance secretariat. Pay rates will change within one hundred and eighty (180) after the signing of the Collective Financial Management Agreement (FI). In accordance with Annex “E” of the FI collective agreement, rates are paid in the form of lump sum payments before the wage change: rates of pay that are not authorised by collective agreement under the EC treaty in relation to the PA agreement: the provisions of the CEF are covered by the NJC-CEF directive instead of an annex to the agreement. Some collective agreements provide for lump sum payments to workers instead of retroactive wage increases or as compensatory supplements.
