PSAC-CIU expects the new agreement for members in the Border Services (FB) group will be signed with Treasury Board in the next few weeks. Apart from wage increases, which are retroactive, new contract terms come into effect on the date of signing.
In September, PSAC-CIU members voted in favour of ratifying the new collective agreement with Treasury Board. However, due to the federal election, the employer was not able to sign the agreement until a new cabinet was named. Now that the new cabinet ministers have been named, we expect the employer to sign the agreement, although we do not yet have a set date.
We will continue to push the government to sign the agreement, and will notify members as soon as a date is confirmed. If you have any questions, please contact your CIU branch president or PSAC regional office.
