AJC-Treasury Board Bargaining Update #7

Until we reach a new deal, the present AJC collective agreement applies.

Dear AJC colleagues,

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

The AJC negotiation team met with TB on June 9th 2015.  More information on TB's short-term disability plan was received, but their proposal on sick leave did not change:
    * 6 days annually (instead of the existing 15 days), and two days carry-over.
    * Use of sick leave banks for two years and for one purpose. One can use 15 hours of banked time to top up the 70% STDP benefits to 93 %.  
    * After two years, all sick leave banks will be eliminated with no further compensation.

The NT has made further data requests in relation to two key issues -- sick leave and pay.

We plan to return to the table July 20-22 after reviewing this updated information.

I will remind you that we face an unprecedented situation. Omnibus budget bills C-4 (adopted last year) and C-59 (which is going through the process as we speak) have changed the bargaining landscape. The AJC has lost its right to arbitration.  Add to this the upcoming federal election and it is very difficult to predict where this round will be going.

As I have indicated in previous messages, 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. [Subject of course to Bill C-59, which will be challenged.]

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

Your AJC President,
Len MacKay
