The employer believes that the current amount of assistance is sufficient. The delegate to the negotiations did not prove otherwise. In addition, this amount was recently increased from $10,000 to $15,000 in the last round of negotiations with the collective agreement signed in June 2017. In addition, in certain circumstances, additional time will be required for the implementation of the collective agreement. This would include workers whose cases require manual intervention to complete the implementation of the new provisions of the collective agreement. Under the protocol, these employees will receive an additional payment of $50 per 90-day delay beyond the initial 180-day implementation period, up to a maximum of $450. The formal signing of the agreements now means that new contractual conditions come into force, with the exception of retroactive monetary provisions. The Ministry of Finance now has 180 days to implement wage increases, wage adjustments and allowances. As explained in the contract ratification kits, PSAC negotiated a lump sum payment of $500 for members of these new contracts, given this expanded implementation schedule, which is normally 90 days.
On June 19, 2017, Bill C-7 was adopted in response to the Supreme Court of Canada`s 2015 decision recognizing the constitutional right of RCMP members to participate. Bill C-7 amended the FPSLRA by introducing MEMBERS of the RCMP into the mandate of the FPSLREB and providing them and reservists with a labour relations regime. This includes a process in which workers` organizations can acquire collective rights. Based on the above information, the adoption of the employer`s proposal will ensure consistency with other collective agreements submitted to the CSSDA and provide for an update of the older language. June 18, 2015 – The SV team orders employers to respect the right of PS workers to negotiate collective agreements. During the 2014 collective bargaining agreement, the parties agreed to abolish the Penological Allowance (PFA) and the OSA (Open Supervision Supervision Allowance) and created the Correctional Specific Duty Allowance (CSSDA). According to the employer, the introduction of a public safety allowance would result in an overlap in allowances with the CSSDA and would amount to a return to previous payments of AFP and OSA negotiated in the last round of collective agreements. In addition, the eligibility criteria for the proposed public safety allowance are not clearly defined; In its current form, it could be a payment to each employee in the public safety portfolio, regardless of the particular circumstances faced by the employee.
