AJC-Treasury Board Bargaining Update #6

The next dates for bargaining have not been set. We cannot effectively bargain with TB until they have sorted out the fiscal realities flowing from the budget.

Dear AJC colleagues,

Here is the latest update on negotiations with Treasury Board (TB).

The AJC negotiation team met with TB on January 26th.  The exchange was brief, as it soon became clear the session would not be particularly productive.  Fiscal uncertainty on the Employer's side is making any significant progress difficult.

It bears repeating that changes to the Public Service Labour Relations Act have elevated Canada's fiscal situation to a paramount consideration in bargaining.   Specifically, it is the government's 'stated budgetary policies' that now qualify as a new 'preponderant factor' under the Act (see s. 148).

With the release of the budget being delayed from a usual February date until at least April, we are effectively stuck in limbo waiting to hear the government's mandate moving forward.

As a result, the next dates for bargaining have not been set.  We cannot effectively bargain with TB until they have sorted out the fiscal realities flowing from the budget.  

We will share these dates with you as soon as we get them.

Until we reach a new deal, the present AJC collective agreement applies. The terms of the AJC collective agreement cannot be modified during the bargaining process.

AJC members can send any questions or comments to the negotiation team at lmackay@ajc-ajj.ca

Your AJC President,
Len MacKay
