PSAC negotiates two-year deal with CRA
After intensive negotiations that began on September 20, PSAC has achieved a tentative agreement with the Canada Revenue Agency.
According to PSAC national president John Gordon and Union of Taxation Employees president Betty Bannon, the union was able to bargain wage increases and other gains for the members in spite of the difficult economic and political climate.
The tentative agreement includes increases of 1.5% in each of two years, effective November 1. Some other improvements include an additional personal day, an expanded definition of family, more flexibility for family leave and improvements to compensation for many indeterminate employees in acting positions.
Members will have an opportunity to vote on the tentative agreement at meetings to be held in October. Details about meeting times and locations will be posted on PSAC regional web sites and available from PSAC/UTE Locals.
