As per the Public Service Labour Relations Act, CRA filed for a Public Interest Conciliation (PIC) earlier this year following the breakdown of mediation talks. Since that time, we have submitted our list of outstanding issues , named our representative for the Public Interest Commission (PIC) and waited for the PIC Chair to be named and to set hearing dates.
In late April we received notice to bargain from Treasury Board to commence negotiations for a new FB collective agreement. Our new bargaining team also met in April to discuss priorities for the coming round.
