Access our summary of all the new provisions of the collective agreement. 34.9.2 Assistance is determined on the basis of costs covered in Section 34.9.1 and may include expenses such as hours, usually collected by an assistant in a classroom, support program or meal and accommodation. 44.1.4 If a leave at the post office falls on a day off for the worker or if the worker is required to work on a leave of absence at the post office, compensation or paid leave is permitted in accordance with the worker`s collective agreement or any other appropriate service authority in Canada. 48.1.1 The Assistant Director may grant more leave for family or bereavement duties than a collective agreement or other authority allows for a similar situation when, according to management, its appearance in an organization imposes difficulties that go beyond what would occur in Canada. However, in one case, no more than eight additional days may be granted under this directive. OTTAWA, August 1, 2019 /CNW/ – The Canadian government remains committed to negotiating in good faith with negotiators and today signed collective agreements with the Canadian Financial Officers Association and the Professional Association of Duty Officers. The Canadian government remains committed to agreements that are appropriate for taxpayers and that provide workers with fair wage adjustments and provisions tailored to the current work environment. In 2017, the Federal Public Sector Relations and Employment Board decided that civilian members of the RCMP should be considered civil servants under the ESS classification, which are essentially work similar to those of EC officials. When this decision comes into force, CADRE workers will be covered by the collective agreement and will be considered part of the EC`s bargaining unit. In the meantime, existing RCMP conditions continue to apply to SSE members. However, these members can benefit from a number of CAPE benefits, including assistance in filing complaints and representation in discussions with the Ministry of Finance secretariat. To date, 18 preliminary agreements have been reached with negotiators; 10 of these agreements concern categories of workers in the central public administration for which the tax office is the employer. 47.1.4 Other absences due to illness or injury that are not covered by this directive are subject to the provisions of the collective agreement or existing provisions.
