In the coming weeks, PSAC will meet with Parks Canada representatives to sign the new collective agreements. With the exception of retroactive monetary provisions, new contractual terms come into effect on the day of signing. BANFF – Parks Canada workers have ratified a new agreement between their union and their employer that includes wage increases. A Parks Canada spokesperson said the Agency was pleased that employees had voted in favour of ratifying the collective agreement with PSAC. Union representatives say that all agreements provide for fair wages, no concessions and improved working conditions. “Parks Canada would like to thank the two bargaining teams for their efforts and commitment that led to the renewal of the collective agreement,” members of the Public Utilities Alliance of Canada (PSCA) voted in Parks Canada`s rate units for their preliminary agreements. The new collective agreement is valid for the period 2018-21. Congratulations to our Parks Canada members! On November 4, 2020, they successfully ratified a new collective agreement. The agreement, which covers the period 2018-2021, has improved wages and working conditions. If union leave is converted without pay into a system in which the Agency puts the member on work leave with wages and bills, the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC), the Union of National Workers (UN) or the Union of Canadian Transportation Employees (UCTE) will ensure that members do not suffer from cash problems by participating in their Union. This problem has been compounded by the current wage settlement system. Therefore, the most recent agreement contains a language that changes the process into a billing system.
This process will take effect on August 1, 2018. After completing negotiations for several Department of Finance negotiating groups, Parks Canada`s negotiating team will return to the table August 24-28 to negotiate with agency representatives. A2: For the respective events from 1 August, members now receive a letter of authorisation from the Union of the PSAC National Office or one of the Components (UNE, UCTE) which organises the event and authorizes their participation in trade union activity for which paid leave must be requested.
