Your AFS bargaining team met with the employer on October 19 and 20 to exchange our non-monetary bargaining demands. Our proposals focus on the key priorities that our 15,000+ members developed from bargaining surveys as well as ongoing consultation with members and stewards.
We served far fewer demands this round of bargaining than last to ensure that members’ priorities are dealt with and that our team is doing all that we can to get you a fair deal as quickly as possible.
Telework and flexible work hours introduced during the pandemic need to be protected in our collective agreement to ensure that they can’t be withdrawn at the whim of the employer.
The proposals of both parties will be posted on the PIPSC website as soon as they are translated.
While non-monetary demands are always discussed first in bargaining, inflation is a known problem. Our AFS members deserve fair pay increases and the employer must recognize the importance of competitive pay to recruit and retain the professionals who are the backbone of our Canadian tax administration.
Your ongoing support is essential to our negotiating a fair collective agreement for all AFS members.
If you have any questions, please contact a local steward or a member of your AFS bargaining team.
AFS President, PIPSC
