In order to improve the efficiency of negotiations the PIPSC Central Bargaining Team electronically exchanged proposals with Treasury Board on November 2, 2018. Representatives from both parties had their first meeting on November 15, 2018.
Terms and conditions negotiated at the central table will apply to the 6 core groups (AV, CS, NR, RE, SH, SP). The same terms and conditions are likely to be negotiated subsequently at the Agency tables. As such, PIPSC recognizes the value of input from all members who could be impacted by these agreements.
Placeholders have been tabled in some areas, such as economic increase, which require additional discussion in order to reserve the right to table specific language at a later date.
The initial proposals from PIPSC and Treasury Board are available for review. These proposals will evolve as negotiations progress.
The next bargaining dates are scheduled for January 29, 30 & 31, 2019.
The team would like to acknowledge the contributions of Allaudin Alibhai who has left the team and welcome Robert Trudeau who has since joined us.
