Newsletter - Bargaining officer's message - September 2012

Fellow members,bargofficer

As you are aware, the CS Group Bargaining team reached a tentative agreement with Treasury Board on June 6th. The details are available in the CS Bargaining Update #27 available on the CS Group web site.

The Group is currently preparing a ratification kit. It will be ready shortly and subsequently submitted for translation.

The CS ratification vote will be conducted electronically at the beginning of October. All members in good standing will receive by email or regular mail the voting instructions and a voting code.

Meanwhile, the CS Group is organizing information sessions across Canada to explain the tentative agreement and answer your questions. The locations and times are posted on the CS Group web site (under calendar).

In solidarity,

Guy Abel
Bargaining Officer

Here we are in the dawn of a new year and, without wanting to appear alarmist, there will be many changes in the public service and our community. Unfortunately, I’m not talking about positive changes. The Harper regime is determined to impose its ideology to the detriment of the Canadian people.
