Bargaining Update 11: AJC requests change to ”binding conciliation” to TB.

The AJC has formally requested a change to switch from conciliation/strike route to "binding conciliation" for the current round of collective bargaining.  

The concept of "binding conciliation" pursuant to s. 182 of the PSLRA is intended to provide a process that is substantively the same as arbitration under the old PSLRA.  This change provides a dispute resolution process for all matters of collective bargaining between the AJC and Treasury Board.

The change is in response to the June 3 2016 letter sent from President of the Treasury Board to all bargaining agents indicating changes to the Bill C-4 (Economic Action Plan 2013 Act, No. 2).  

The AJC looks forward to reviewing the Government bill when tabled in Parliament in the fall and is encouraged by the continued commitment to restoring fair and balanced labour laws recognizing the vital role of unions in protecting the rights of AJC members.

The AJC has been told that Treasury Board has completed a wage comparability study but has not shared the report with the AJC.  The AJC has asked Treasury Board to set dates to return to the bargaining table and obtain instructions in the interim to deal with wage comparability and is impatiently awaiting a response.
