CS Bargaining - CS Byte #9

 To All CS Members

On Friday, February 6, representatives from your Bargaining Team met with Treasury Board to exchange proposals for the renewal of the collective agreement. The CS Group and Treasury Board have reviewed the various demands, underscoring the significant issues in this round. Not surprisingly, Treasury Board presented us with the sick leave demand. It is predictably consistent with the offers made to other groups.  Our side submitted a number of demands from improving overtime and leave to regulating performance management and professional development. We also submitted demands on subcontracting and privatization.  We stressed to Treasury Board that the privatization matter was crucial to a tentative agreement.

Work is progressing and we expect to complete the proposals workbook in January 2015. The team, the CS Group Executive and the Institute deploy the resources needed to produce proposals that will meet the priorities of all members.

Dear CS Group members

The summer is already behind us and in spite of our summer vacations; the CS group has been extremely occupied in the course of last few months. The CS Negotiation Preparation Committee composed of the Bargaining Team and the members of the CS National Executive met this last July. The Committee started writing the proposals package for our next collective agreement. These proposals are in line with the negotiation goals established by the Institute and the CS group and reflect the interests of all members of the Group, the Institute and the public service in general.

Dear CS Group members and delegates to the 2014 CS Group AGM,

I n October 2013, I enthusiastically accepted the position as your next Bargaining Officer. Since that time, the CS Group has been actively engaged in preparing the next round of bargaining. As I indicated to you in my previous reports, PIPSC gave a kick-start to negotiations by holding a conference in January. During that conference, the Group Presidents committed to working closely together. The CS Group then surveyed its membership. The survey results were reviewed by the Group Executive and the Contract Proposal Committee at meetings held on April 15 and 16. During these two days of brainstorming, participants revised the major demands from the last round and prioritized the demands for this round. The ultimate goal of these exercises was to prepare the next list of demands, which will be presented to the Treasury Board Secretariat once the notice to bargain has been submitted by either side.

BargTeamThe CS Group bargaining team will be meeting this Saturday, to continue working on our demands and on our strategy. Our collective agreement does not end until December 2014, and we are planning a rough round of negotiation with Treasury Board. We will need the contribution of all members, to make some gain, and not lose too much. Luckily we have the full support of the Institute and all 16 other bargaining agents who have signed the common front agreement.
