Update to the FAQ on the New Collective Agreement

Please note that the FAQ section on the collective agreement has been updated as a result of our communique dated April 23, 2013

***Now that the collective agreement is in effect as of March 12, 2013, what happens next?

The employer has until July 10, 2013 to implement the economic and retroactive pay increases and adjustments.  That said, the AJC has made representations to Treasury Board (TB) to reduce the timelines and will continue to exert pressure on TB, the departments and agencies to move quickly.

Overtime and travel time entitlements will cease as of April 1, 2013. From that date, all LAs will be entitled to management leave with pay.

Lump sum performance awards are to be paid out on May 10, 2013.

Notice:  Notwithstanding the above, the AJC and TB recently reached an agreement which harmonizes, for this year only, the payout dates for the PREA and the retroactive pay increases into one date: June 12, 2013. The lump-sum award for those at the top of the scale will be paid by June 12, 2013 in lieu of May 10, 2013, but the employer accelerates the payout of all retroactive pay increases to June 12, 2013 in lieu of July 10, 2013 subject to a few exceptions.  Due to the late implementation date and the many calculations required to get the PREA calculation right, DOJ and PPSC could not meet the May 10 date. However, the delay in one payment (PREA) is made up with the earlier payment of the other retro payments.
