The Government of Canada is committed to negotiating in good faith with all public sector bargaining agents. The Government`s approach is to negotiate appropriate agreements for Canadian workers, negotiators and taxpayers. During the current round of bargaining, six different agencies have concluded 17 collective agreements with four negotiators representing 17,000 workers. Table 2 below lists the agencies and bargaining units with new collective agreements, their union membership and their population. The employer argues that these costs are the responsibility of the worker and that the employer should not pay for parking spaces for workers who must report to work and board a ship for marine service. Given current compensation and human resource systems and ongoing salary management challenges, the Canadian government has no flexibility to implement agreements on a basis other than that contained in the negotiated Memorandum of Understanding. Approval of another implementation process and other timelines would represent bad faith negotiations on behalf of the government, as it would accept something it would not be able to satisfy. The ITD is an element of remuneration that appears only in the SV collective agreement; It is available to employees who work at the Correctional Service of Canada (CSC) and train inmates. According to the employer, there is no justification for the proposed amendment. The LI and SC groups have specific provisions in the collective agreement to compensate for the on-call duty: the employer argues that these workers are not subject to additional time to change positions on a regular or operational basis. Approval of this proposal would result in unnecessary additional costs for the employer.
In the event that workers have to work after their shift, they would be entitled to overtime pay, in accordance with the provisions of the collective agreement. In addition, the comparisons contain a number of government improvements that increase the overall value of changes to collective agreements. These include the introduction of new provisions on leave for violence and home care, the improvement of maternity and parental leave and allowances, and the broadening of the definition of family, which broadens the scope of certain leave provisions. Since the spring of 2018, the Board of Directors of Canada (TBS) has been negotiating with more than 11 bargaining agents to renew collective agreements representing more than 175,000 employees, on behalf of the Treasury Board, the PCA`s employer.
