Ottawa: After a few weeks of negotiations, the federal government and members of Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) have reached a tentative agreement.
In a press release, PSA said, “With the national strike now over for Treasury Board workers, members of the PA, SV, TC and EB bargaining groups are required to return to work beginning May 1 at 9 a.m. ET or their next scheduled shift after that date.”
“In this tentative agreement, PSAC has secured a fair contract for members that exceeds the employer’s original offer before the launch of strike action, and provides wage increases above the recommendations of the Public Interest Commission as well as those negotiated by other federal bargaining agents. It also provides significant new protections around remote work for PSAC members,” the PSAC added.
“During a period of record-high inflation and soaring corporate profits, workers were told to accept less – but our members came together and fought for better,” said Chris Aylward, PSAC national president.
“This agreement delivers important gains for our members that will set the bar for all workers in Canada,” he said.
