The bargaining agent`s proposal in point 23.14(a) to include the language “within Canada or within North America” is already covered by the Travel Directive, which includes travel outside North America. It is not necessary to address this issue in the collective agreement. In addition, the proposal to insert the imperative “intended” limits the employer`s discretion to refuse leave if there are restrictions that do not allow travel and/or departure. “family”, except as otherwise provided in this Agreement, the father, mother (or, alternatively, stepfather, stepfather or adoptive parent), brother, sister, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, spouse (including common law spouse) reside with the worker, child (including the child of a life partner), child, foster child or protégé of the worker, grandson, father-in-law, mother-in-law, sister-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, brother-in-law, brother-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, sister-in-law, brother-in-law, brother-in-law, brother-in-law, brother-in-law, brother-in-law, brother-in-law, big brother, the employer states that the current definition of the eb collective agreement, which applies to family obligations rights, is comparable to what is found in most collective agreements within of the CPA. The employer`s proposal also contains the Memorandum of Understanding on the implementation of the collective agreement negotiated with all cpa groups and separate agencies. Other improvements to the EB collective agreement are as follows: the Canadian government is committed to bargaining in good faith and has a history of bargaining that is productive and respectful of their dedicated employees. Their approach to collective bargaining is to negotiate appropriate agreements for public service employees, negotiators and Canadian taxpayers. The employer`s position is that it is not necessary to include an article on telework in the collective agreement. The existing policy is clear: the provisions of the collective agreement must be respected in a telework situation. Any worker who, at the time of signing the Memorandum of Understanding of 17 June 2003, received a specialist doctor`s allowance under Article 49.05 of 30 Remuneration shall be received as long as he or she remains in his or her current material position, which expired on 6 June 2003. 45.08 With the exception of workers whose working time is provided for in clause 45.03, workers who are required to change their scheduled work schedule without receiving at least five (5) forty-eight (48) hours before the start of the change shall be paid at the rate of time and half (1 1/2) for the first position that worked according to the revised schedule. The following posts, performed according to the revised schedule, shall be paid in direct time, subject to the provisions of this Agreement on overtime.
The parties have different proposals as to the duration of the revised agreement. The employer proposes a term of 4 years, while the PSAC advocates for a 3-year agreement. Some other groups, such as the FS group represented by PAFSO, have benefited from various targeted measures to meet their specific needs, but the total value of these specific improvements has been around 1% over the four years of their agreements. In the spring of 2019, the government developed a new methodology for calculating retroactive payments to facilitate their implementation. The government has also negotiated broader implementation timelines, appropriate staff compensation in recognition of timelines, and accountability measures. All of these measures are set out in the Memorandum of Understanding, which is contained in the 34 federal public service agreements. Within the federal public administration, separate authorities pursue the same general objectives of government; They are committed to negotiating fair and appropriate agreements in good faith for Canadian workers, negotiators and taxpayers. . . .
