Bargaining Update #28: Ratification Vote

The ratification kit is ready. It will be released in the first week of October, at the same time as the ratification vote. Members will have around 5 weeks to register their vote. The ratification results will be published in mid-November.

If the tentative agreement is ratified, the new collective agreement will take effect the date of signing, anticipated to be in the first half of December, and the employer will have a period of 120 days to implement the new rates of pay. Departmental Human Resources will be in touch with you with information regarding severance within 3 months and employees have to select a payment option within 6 months.

If the tentative agreement is rejected, the CS group bargaining team will return to the negotiations table with a renewed mandate, in order to get a better deal.

Message from the CS Group President, Luc Carrière

Fellow members,

Many of you have contacted us inquiring about the ratification of the tentative agreement. Our bargaining officer, with the help of the bargaining team and the CS Group executive, just finalized the voting kits. These kits will be sent out during the first week of October. The ratification vote will start at that time. The CS members in good standing will have five (5) weeks to vote. Results will be posted on PIPSC and CS Group websites around mid-November. If a majority of CS members vote in favour of the agreement, the Employer will implement the new contract within 120 days from the date of signature. If the tentative agreement is rejected, bargaining will continue in an attempt to reach a better deal.
