We stand in solidarity for a fair agreement for each MEMBER of the CSPIP. Increases in allowances are not retroactive. The employer has 150 days after the date of signature to implement the changes and issue the payment of benefits. Please keep your contact information up to date via the Member Portal in order to continue to obtain information on the implementation of collective agreements and the Phoenix transaction. As part of your economic package for this interim agreement, a $650 signing bonus will be granted to any employee who is a member of the PA bargaining unit on the day the new agreement is signed. The employer has 150 days after the signing date to pay the bonus. The new collective agreement is retroactive to June 20, 2014 and expires on June 20, 2018. This means that you are entitled to an additional payment for the period during which you have from the 20.
