We are pleased to announce that the NEB group has ratified the collective agreement. Just as we have completed our ratification process, the Employer is concurrently engaging in its ratification process. This involves both receiving a non-objection letter from Treasury Board Secretariat, and Governor-In-Council approval from Cabinet.
Once the Employer has ratified the agreement, it will be signed. The Employer will then have 180 days to implement the collective agreement, excluding retroactive payments. For these payments, the Employer must implement most cases in 180 days and has up to 560 days to implement retroactive payments in cases where manual intervention is required.
