Bargaining with CRA starts soon and we're ready
Our negotiating team has been getting fully prepared for the first bargaining session with the Canada Revenue Agency.
The nine members of our negotiating team, which includes the PSAC negotiator and PSAC research officer, met August 24 and 25 to review our demands and establish priorities based on input from our members. The team also considered current bargaining trends in today's difficult economic climate and worked out their bargaining strategy for this round.
The union and employer teams are scheduled to meet from September 20 to October 1 in a concentrated effort to achieve an early settlement before the agreement expires on October 31. An additional nine days in October have also been set aside to continue this process.
Our Locals have also been gearing for this round of bargaining. We need them to be prepared and ready because our team depends on the support of all of our members.
We're committed to keeping you informed
Once bargaining begins, we'll be issuing regular bulletins to keep you up to date. For bargaining news visit www.psac-afpc.com and sign up at www.ute-sei.org using the “Subscribe” feature. No CRA e-mail addresses please.
