Table 1 presents collective agreement units with new collective agreements, union affiliation and population from March 2018. The parties have different proposals for the duration of the revised agreement. The employer proposes a four-year period, while the PSAC argues for a three-year contract. The employer is proposing a four-year contract to allow for greater stability and predictability. This would reflect the duration of the last intermediate tariff between the parties, which covered the period between August 2014 and August 2018. In 2017, the parties entered into a 2014 collective agreement that expires one year later (august 2018). This did not give the parties enough time to know the changes that were negotiated prior to the announcement of the negotiations, notified by psac for the current round of negotiations. Collective Agreement that does not require legislative implementation Given the magnitude of the negotiator`s outstanding proposals, the employer asks PSAC to submit a limited number of proposals taking into account the current collective bargaining landscape and the recent results of negotiations with other federal public service officials. The large number of proposals makes it difficult for the parties to focus their work on key priorities; a smaller number of proposals should significantly improve the likelihood of implementation. The employer respectfully proposes to the Commission to give direction in this regard and to order the parties to return to negotiations with a reduced number of proposals before the Commission`s report is published. All 34 agreements cover a four-year period and include economic increases of 2.0%, 2.0%, 1.5% and 1.5%.
The employer argues that a large number of lighting stations are accessible by car. Approval of such an amendment would result in financial costs to the Department of Fisheries and Oceans and would exceed the provisions of other CPA collective agreements without justification. This proposal represents a cost of more than $48,000 per year and 0.01% of the Sv salary base. The parties also agree to meet within one hundred and eighty days (180) from the date of the signing of this agreement. From the day the collective agreement was signed to address the problems of hiring and retaining B-MAM K-lte-HVAC technicians in the Operational Services (SV) group. The employer will provide cold GL-MAM CCS technicians, including established GL-MAM building technicians, who have confirmation of refrigeration and air conditioning systems that have a refrigeration and air conditioning certificate and who perform the duties of a gl-MAM HVAC refrigerant technician, will award an annual term allowance of $8,000 ($8,000). This letter is sent within 90 days of the signing of the collective agreement.
