The employer therefore asks the Commission to include in its report the employer`s proposal for a four-year collective agreement, with an economic increase of 2%, 2%, 1.5% and 1.5% and 1% for group economic measures. 34 While I accept the well-said arguments of the employer`s counsel, my interpretation of section 6.2 may relate to other parts of the CEF that deal with the employer`s decision to offer CCAs or other options, I believe that it is more difficult to negotiate a new section smoothly and to include it in a long-standing agreement than to harm other secondary sectors of the CEF. Given the ongoing compensation and human resources systems and persistent wage management challenges, the Government of Canada does not have the capacity to implement agreements on a different basis than negotiated agreements. Approval of another implementation process and, in the meantime, would mean negotiations in bad faith on behalf of the government, because it would accept something that it would not be able to complete. Negotiations on new collective agreements for most members began more than a year ago, but the government has repeatedly rejected our reasonable proposals for a fair settlement. Bargaining Partners: Federal Government Dockyard Trades and Labour Council (Esquimalt) (West) (FGDTLC (W)) Collective Agreement Expiry Date: January 30, 2023 Dispute Settlement Mechanism: Arbitration At the same time, The government has reached a preliminary agreement with the PSAC to compensate employees for damage to the Phoenix compensation system and the late implementation of the 2014 collective agreements. If this compensation agreement is approved, this compensation agreement will apply to the 140,000 PSAC members paid by the Phoenix payment system. The employer argues that services with a call centre within their structure have procedures in place to allay the fears of clients who behave in an unacceptable or threatening way. These procedures may be reviewed on a regular basis and the employer believes that they cannot be part of the collective agreement, as they would unduly interfere with management`s prerogative under P. 7 of the Federal Public Sector Relations Act in labour law. It should be noted that 18 of the 27 CPA collective agreements now contain the same language or language electronically, as proposed by the employer.
During this round of negotiations, the partner presented a comprehensive list of proposals. The PSAC submitted 19 proposals that are joint with all PSAC groups, including economic increases above the model, two additional paid days of leave per year and an increase in leave fees. The PSAC also introduced 75 specific amendments to the PA table, including increases in provisions, new certificates and other monetary and non-monetary items that are not currently included in the DEA agreement and/or other CPA collective agreements. In all agreements reached to date, average annual growth is 2.0% per year over four years before the composite effect is calculated. It takes into account economic increases of 2%, 2%, 1.5% and 1.5%, as well as increases of 1% targeted over the duration of the agreements.
