CFIA Bargaining Information Sessions

The Public Service Alliance of Canada will be holding an electronic vote for members of the Canadian Food Inspection Agency to ratify the tentative agreement between PSAC and CFIA.

The voting period will open on January 22 and close February 22, 2018 at 12 p.m.

Meetings will be held by webinar for all members, in addition to face-to-face meetings organized in some regions.

More information about meeting dates and locations in your area will be updated shortly. As per Regulation 15 of the PSAC Constitution, all members must attend a meeting – either by webinar or in-person – in order to cast a vote.

Update personal information

Before voting begins, CFIA members should log into their PSAC Member Portal and make sure their mailing address and personal email are up to date because voting PIN numbers will be sent by their preferred method of communication.

It’s also crucial that CFIA members ensure they remain PSAC members in good standing before voting begins. Due to issues with the Phoenix pay system, members who ought to be in good standing have been rendered not in good standing because their dues have abruptly stopped (despite their continued employment).

A new online form is now available where members can request to remain in good standing in absence of union dues.
