PSAC reached a tentative deal today for new collective agreements for three of its five bargaining units with Treasury Board. Agreements for the PA, SV and EB groups will go into force only if they are ratified by members in votes over the coming weeks. Exploratory talks for the Border Services (FB) and Technical Services (TC) groups ended without agreement and regular bargaining will resume in 2011.

Treasury Board approached PSAC to engage in early exploratory talks on contracts that expire in 2011.

“We have had a challenging two weeks at the bargaining table,” said John Gordon, National President of PSAC. “While we are pleased that three of our bargaining teams were able to reach agreements, we are disappointed with the lack of movement by Treasury Board and particularly some government departments on long-standing economic and workplace issues for our border and technical services members.”
