Your PIPSC NUREG Group Bargaining Team is pleased to announce that on February 12, 2024, we reached a tentative agreement with CNSC to conclude this round of collective bargaining. We believe we have reached the best deal possible in what has been a challenging round of negotiations.

Highlights of this tentative agreement include;

  • Four-year agreement expiring March 31, 2026;
  • Wage increases totalling 12.5% over four years, compounded to 13.14% 
  • $2500 one-time lump sum payment to be paid to all employees who are in the bargaining unit on the date of signing of the collective agreement;
  • Improved terminable allowance for FI classifications; 
  • Commencing April 1, 2024, introduces a new $5,000 pensionable annual retention allowance for all incumbents who are at the maximum level in the wage grids for the REG 6, REG 7and REG 7TS classifications;
  • Agreement to merge the REG 7 and REG 7 TS classifications in 2025, with salary protection for incumbents in REG 7 TS positions in accordance with Article 33.07 of the collective agreement; and
  • Specific improvements to bereavement leave, care leave and family-related leave provisions.

This agreement must now be ratified by the NUREG Group membership. An electronic vote will be held in order to ratify this agreement.  All regular members in good standing will receive the voting instructions March 20, 2024, and closing at 12:00 pm Eastern Standard Time on April 3, 2024.

Important Information:

A bilingual information session will be held on March 20, 2024 to answer questions from the membership regarding the proposed amendments to the collective agreement. Members will receive a separate communication with the registration instructions. 

You will find all the information concerning the tentative agreement below. It is important that you take the time to review everything prior to voting and prior to asking questions to the Bargaining Team.

Please review the attached documents:


A Yes vote means: You are accepting all of the changes proposed in the tentative agreement. Those changes will take place at the date of the signing (except as otherwise noted) and the employer will have a period varying between 180 and 460 days to implement them (this includes any retro pay).


A No vote means: You reject the tentative agreement and instruct the NUREG Group Bargaining Team to pursue further negotiations, with a high likelihood of heading to arbitration. 


The PIPSC NUREG Group Bargaining Team unanimously recommends the acceptance of this tentative agreement.
