A collective agreement is a document signed between the employer and a bargaining partner that contains provisions that respect the terms of employment and related issues. The agreement indicates your rights in the form of wages and benefits for the fulfilment of the obligations entrusted to you. The contracting parties acknowledge that an extension of these clauses is done without prejudice or unprecedented and that the parties do not bind in any way to a particular position that they might wish to take in overtime, the transfer and/or liquidation of vacation leave or cash compensation or compensation in cash or with wage issues during a collective bargaining cycle. 17.25 The Union may make a group complaint to the employer on behalf of workers in the collective agreement unit who feel incriminated by the usual interpretation or application of an interpretation of collective agreements or arbitrations for these workers. The one-time lump sum payment of USD 250 is intended for PSAC members who, at the time of signing the collective agreement, work in slaughterhouses in the ce-02, CE-03 or CE-05 and level occupational category. 1.1.32 Severance pay and other benefits arising from other clauses of collective agreements are separate from those mentioned in this appendix and beyond. 18.03 By mutual agreement, the parties may use a mediator to resolve a complaint in relation to discrimination. The selection of the mediator is done by mutual agreement. 1.01 The aim of this agreement is to maintain harmonious and mutually beneficial relations between the employer, the Union and the workers, by establishing certain conditions of employment which have been agreed by collective bargaining. Notwithstanding Article 22 (employment security) of the collective agreement, the current employment transition policy is a priority in the event of a conflict between this annex to the transition of employment and this section. Collective agreements apply to all CFIA employees represented by a bargaining partner. In order to improve security, payments under paragraphs 62.04 to 62.07 or similar provisions in other collective agreements are considered a termination benefit for the management of this clause.
Changes to maternity and parental leave leave take effect on the day the collective agreement is signed. Remember that once you receive parental benefits, you cannot change the length of your leave.
