As bargaining season is upon us we are Better Together. Building on our success with Work Force Adjustment and our excellent progress with the Employee Wellness Support Program, representatives from the eighteen (18) groups* under the Treasury Board have joined forces to negotiate common issues at a central bargaining table.
Common issues that PIPSC would like to discuss include: pay rules, family leave, workplace harassment, family day, duration of agreement and economic increase.
The Central Bargaining Team met in August and September to establish proposals. The Team is planning to initiate bargaining this fall.
Central Bargaining Team members: Robert Trudeau, AFS; Rob Scott, CS; Adam Fenwick, SH; Kim McGuire, AV; Elizabeth Ptasznik, SP; Mehran Alaee, RE; Dale Hudson, NR; Stéphanie Fréchette, CFIA-S&A and Louis Poirier, NRC-RO/RCO.
