The purpose of this Memorandum of Understanding is to confirm an agreement between the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada and the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) for the reimbursement of annual membership dues to the Appraisal Institute of Canada or the Ordre professionnel des aines agréés du Québec, as well as to the American Society of Receptionists. The top priority of this round of bargaining was to prevent the employer from assigning our duties. In addition to this crucial issue, it was clear to CS Group management that we could not achieve our goal of reducing contracting without addressing the issues of technological change and training/career development. The improvements made to these three articles have become the pillars of this provisional agreement. Notwithstanding the employment security article of the collective agreement, in the event of a conflict between this Annex for the adaptation of the workforce and this Article, this Annex shall give priority to the adaptation of the workforce. The Technical Commission will develop all necessary agreements and documents to support the implementation of an EEIG in the next round of collective bargaining. This work shall be completed within one year of signature. At a series of periodic meetings, the Technical Committee makes preliminary recommendations for consideration by the Steering Committee on the following issues: Notwithstanding the provisions of clause 44.05 relating to the calculation of retroactive payments and clause 47.03 on the period of implementation of the collective agreement, the memorandum concluded between the employer and the Public Service Professional Institute of Canada aims to change the Ber`s approach. the administration and management of retroactive payments for the current round of negotiations. A worker may be granted paid training leave without pay for different periods of up to one (1) year renewable by mutual agreement, in order to go to an approved institution for further or special studies in a field of education where specific preparation is required to fulfil his current role more appropriately or to carry out studies in a given field, to provide a service that the employer needs or intends to provide. Once TBS and PIPSC have agreed on the draft language of the EEIG and the design of the program, this agreement will be made available to the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and the PIPSC-AFSG bargaining table for ratification and inclusion in their collective agreement.
The Steering Board will carry out the necessary work for the overall implementation, including the provision of services and governance issues, by 21 March 2020 at the latest, which date may be postponed by mutual agreement between the Parties. 42.03 By mutual agreement, the parties may use a mediator to resolve a complaint of discrimination. The selection of the Ombudsman shall be made by mutual agreement. On July 4, 2017, the Institute and the employer signed the CS collective agreement. Today`s signing of the CS Group collective agreement follows the group`s ratification of the preliminary agreement reached in March 2017 with the employer in May 2017. The employer has 120 days from the date of signature to implement the retroactive payment. (b) Such information shall be communicated to workers by communications published by the employer in places where such communications are most likely to be brought to the attention of workers subject to the appeal procedure, or in another manner agreed between the employer and the institute. . .
