Under article 7.4, the terms “researchers”) and “scientists” are considered researchers (UC) and applied scientists (PS), as defined in the definitions of public service occupations – see page 9 of the directive. This definition can be expanded if additional bargaining units sign similar agreements on scientific integrity. 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. TBS has published the highlights of the latest round of collective agreements that have been signed. Members of the Education and Library Science (EB), Operations Services (SV) and PSAC-UTE (Canada Revenue Agency) groups have also recently ratified their interim agreements. PSAC is working with the Treasury Board to finalize the text and schedules of the new agreements and expects the new contracts to be signed in the coming weeks. 3.5. The DDAA will record all cases of conflict or incompatibility between this policy and this legislation, collective agreements or political instruments of the Ministry of Finance and/or the political instruments of the DDAA and will present this note as part of the performance assessment covered in point 7.9 of this directive. PSAC and the Treasury Board today signed new collective agreements for the Program and Administrative (PA) and Technical Services (TC) groups, which were ratified by members on September 29. The two collective agreements represent more than 80,000 employees of the federal public service.
PSAC and The Treasury Board also signed the Phoenix damages agreement reached this summer. 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. 7.4.5. In accordance with the provisions of paragraphs 7.4.2 and 7.4.3, DDAA will ensure that workers have guidelines consistent with collective agreements and the Communications Management Directive to help them determine the types of public communications for which disclosure from the supervisory/management authority is desirable, as well as the appropriate time and form of such communications. 5.2. There is nothing in this policy to replace all relevant collective agreements. Nor does the policy extend the provisions of collective agreements in this area to workers who are not subject to these agreements.
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. Training Follow us for special online training on different aspects of the new collective agreement. Register now PSAC expects the Phoenix Treasury Board general damage (i.e. the $2,500 package) within the above 180-day implementation period of 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. As with public communications, researchers or scientists who disseminate or communicate information through scientific research or media are subject to the Access to Information Act, the public sector code of values and ethics as adopted on April 2, 2012, and must comply with the Department of Finance Of Canada`s Communications Management Directive if it is not inconsistent with relevant collective agreements.
