Collective agreements will not be updated until they formally enter into force, after both parties have “signed” the document in question. The parties agree that within 30 days of the signing of the collective agreement, a meaningful consultation on the development of workplace evaluation standards should take place. New employment assessment standards will be finalized by December 30, 2017, so that TB ministers can consider the goal of negotiating new payrolls for these employment assessment standards under the subsequent collective agreement. On August 25, 2017, a Memorandum of Understanding was signed between the Treasury Board secretariat and the Public Service Alliance of Canada on incentives to hire and retain compensation advisors. Under the agreement, compensation advisors eligible for compensation retention assistance under Schedule J of the Collective Programming and Management Services Agreement (PA) may receive temporary incentives until June 1, 2018. In addition, the 34 agreements contain the same Memorandum of Understanding on the implementation of collective agreements. The agreement defines the new method of calculating retroactive payments and provides for longer time frames for the implementation of the agreements. The agreement also includes appropriate liability measures and compensation for staff, given the extended delays. In addition, in certain circumstances, additional time will be required for the implementation of the collective agreement. This would include workers whose cases require manual intervention to complete the implementation of the new provisions of the collective agreement. Under the protocol, these employees will receive an additional payment of $50 per 90-day delay beyond the initial 180-day implementation period, up to a maximum of $450. Within the working group, TBS and PSPC considered different options for retroactive payment processing and implementation of the monetary components of collective agreements as a whole.
The employer`s proposals also include the agreement on the implementation of the collective agreement, which was negotiated with all the CPA groups and the various agencies. The provisions of Part III of this agreement, with the exception of paragraphs 27.01, 27.02 and 30.01 to 30.05, do not apply to workers who are on leave in accordance with this memorandum.
