Collective Bargaining

Our public service is the best in the world. You give your best at home and in your community. Every day you challenge yourself to do better.

Isn’t it time for your employer to do the same?

Join the campaign
  • Canadians expect the Federal Government to be a model employer and ensure employees are able to give their best in the workplace and to their families. You deserve improved family leave.
  • A healthy and respectful workplace benefits everyone. You deserve stronger anti-harassment protections.
  • Phoenix has hit hard. Your employer has work to do to ensure this is never repeated. You deserve pay protections and a pay increase that reflects the real cost of living.

All collective agreements expired in 2018, and it is time for their renewal. Your bargaining team is working hard on your group’s new collective agreement. The central negotiation table, where you are represented or where your group is represented, is currently working for better family leave, anti-harassment policies and fair pay. Show your support and our collective strength – sign up to support the campaign!
