As you may have heard, the Treasury Board has released its new direction on presence in the core workplace. This dictates a significant shift in workplace policy for core public administration employees. It requires these employees to begin working on-site at least three days per week by September 9, 2024. The Treasury Board also announced that none of the IT exemptions would continue to be in effect.

While the Agency is a separate employer and has not yet made a statement, I have been invited to a meeting on Friday afternoon. The expectation is that they will likely follow the trend rather than bucking it and showing some individuality. There is no consideration for morale, the environment or retention in this expected decision.

We encourage you to go to the PIPSC website and sign the e-action demanding that MPs reject the three day RTO mandate.

In solidarity,

Donald Kenny

President, CFIA-IN, PIPSC
