Collective Agreement Fb

After two years and eight months of negotiations, four final offers, petitions, picketing, a final offer rejected by a legal challenge, complaints about unfair labor practices and a final round of 28-hour negotiations, our negotiating team reached an agreement with the Treasury Board/CBS on Tuesday morning from 11:00 a.m. Our FB negotiating team unanimously recommends the ratification of our new agreement. Collective Agreement: Canada Border Services Agency – FB Group With respect to salaries, our review of recent policing wage agreements across Canada is underway – including our follow-up to contract negotiations for a first collective agreement for RCMP officers. Our position has always been to cross-reference FB 3s with 1st Class Constables. In recent rounds of negotiations, we have always reached agreements with total and retroactive wage increases for our members. We do not intend to do anything else in this cycle. Bargaining Partners: Federal Government Dockyard Trades and Labour Council (Esquimalt) (West) (FGDTLC (W)) Collective Agreement Expiry Date: January 30, 2023 Dispute Resolution Mechanism: Conciliation Our negotiating team unanimously recommends ratification of our new agreement. In terms of compensation, planning rights and protection, this agreement is considerably better than the final offer presented to our team in the spring and which the government attempted to impose a vote on last summer. Next month, our newly elected negotiating team will meet in Ottawa to begin preparing proposals for the next round of negotiations with the Treasury Board. Our negotiating team and the national leaders of psaC and CIU are committed to defending our highly competitive tariff rights in the next round of negotiations and to fighting for further gains for PSAC/CIU members at the CBSA. We also talked about our proposal to extend protection against the cumbersome management of the CBSA in our dealings with our members, including discipline and arbitrary removal of defence equipment.

In our collective agreement, there will have to be new safeguards on these issues. Our team has made proposals to improve protection against abuse of power and harassment, but management has not accepted any of these changes. The CBSA believes that the language of our contract should remain largely limited to sexual harassment. We cannot accept that because we believe that our collective agreement should cover all forms of harassment, not just sexual harassment. This agreement is consistent with agreements reached by other federal law enforcement agencies and maintains the pay parity we achieved in the previous round of negotiations.
