AJC Pulls out of the Treasury Board's Sick Leave Working Group

These weren't 'true, meaningful discussions in any sense of the word', says AJC President, Lisa Blais.

The Association of Justice Counsel (AJC) has pulled out of the working group on sick leave created by Treasury Board.

As you will see by reading this Ottawa Citizen article from Thursday, November 21, 2013, the AJC has taken this decision along with the other federal bargaining agents.

With the sweeping changes in omnibus Bill C-4 that will weaken bargaining power and gut the Public Service Labour Relations Act (PSLRA), there is presently a growing mistrust between bargaining agents and this government.

Further, these discussions were never true consultations. As AJC President, Lisa Blais, says in the Citizen article, these weren't 'true, meaningful discussions in any sense of the word.'  Treasury Board has already made up its mind. TB is already prepared to issue its request for proposal for a new short-term disability plan and revamped disability insurance scheme.

The AJC, like other bargaining agents, also felt that these discussions should take place at the negotiations table as sick leave benefits are subject to collective bargaining. We will however continue to participate in inter-union consultations on sick leave.
