Collective Bargaining

Building on the tremendous solidarity established in the last round of negotiations, our 16 Treasury Board groups are busy preparing for a new round of bargaining that is scheduled to begin in the coming months. 

All collective agreements are set to expire in 2018, even those that have not yet been signed (OSFI, CFIA-VM, CFIA-IN and NRC-RO/RCO), or even reached (CFIA-S&A). The Presidents and Bargaining Officers met on June 28 to develop a national strategy that will allow PIPSC to once more present a united front and advance our members’ demands.
