On March 8, 2024, PIPSC and the Treasury Board signed your collective agreement. This followed the NR Group’s ratification vote, as well as final checks and verifications.

This was the final step of the ratification process, which means the terms of the collective agreement are now in effect.

Here are some estimates of when things may happen. It may take:

  • 4-6 weeks before the new pay rates are updated in your take-home pay
  • 6-8 weeks for the back pay to be deposited into your bank account
  • 8-10 weeks for the $2,500 lump sum to be deposited

We will provide you with more detailed timelines as they are updated.

For most members, owed money will be paid by the 180-day deadline. For those who have what the pay center calls “complex cases”, the employer has up to 460 days to fully pay you what you are owed, as such cases require manual intervention. 

Pay implementation will be effective as of the starting date for our new agreement: October 1, 2022. All components of the new agreement which are unrelated to pay administration come into force on the date of signature of this agreement, unless otherwise expressly stipulated. This includes changes to language in relation to vacation leave, domestic violence leave, bereavement leave, and leave with pay for family-related responsibility, etc.

If you have any questions, please contact a member of your NR Bargaining Team.
