PSAC Parks Canada Bargaining Unit
We're starting another round of bargaining
PSAC will be serving notice to bargain with the Parks Canada Agency on April 5, 2007. Your negotiating team is eager to begin bargaining and this is the earliest possible legal date to serve the notice – four months before the expiry date of the agreement.
Negotiating team members have been meeting
Members of the PSAC's negotiating team for the Parks Canada bargaining unit met from March 5 to 8 in Ottawa, their first meeting since their election at the national bargaining conference in early February. The team worked on finalizing the demands package and establishing bargaining priorities. Team members also spent time considering bargaining demands from an equity perspective.
We'll be at the bargaining table this spring
Your team is energized and focused on getting a fair and equitable agreement for our members at the Agency.
The next step in the bargaining process is to exchange our demands with the employer. The exchange will take place electronically on May 3. The demands will also be posted on the PSAC web site shortly after the exchange.
The first meetings with the employer will take place from May 24 and 25. These meetings are taking place to allow the parties a first opportunity to review the demands, provide clarification and answer questions.
Negotiations will actually start at the next set of meetings which have been scheduled to take place the week of June 18th.
