ACFO would like to thank everyone who put their name forward for consideration for the public service FI collective bargaining committee. We’re pleased to announce that the Board of Directors has appointed the committee (listed below), which will oversee the next round of collective bargaining with Treasury Board. The committee includes representatives from a range of departments and regions and with a variety of experience in the FI Community.
Last week, ACFO served notice to the Treasury Board to begin collective bargaining negotiations on behalf of public service FIs. The committee’s first meeting will take place August 11-12, with formal bargaining anticipated to begin in September, well in advance of the agreement’s expiration in November. In the meantime, ACFO staff continue to review the many great suggestions made by the 1,200 members who completed the collective bargaining survey and to conduct a comparative analysis of other public service collective agreements and industry comparators.
We are grateful to all who took the time to share their thoughts in the survey and volunteered to be part of the bargaining process. If you have questions about the process or how the committee was selected, please contact Nicole Bishop-Tempke (email@example.com).
We would also like to note that the National Joint Council’s Commuting Assistance Directive will soon be undergoing a review. The Directive is co-developed by bargaining agents and public service employers, and helps defray excessive costs incurred by employees travelling to and from remote worksites. If you would like to provide proposals for consideration during the review process, please contact Nicolas Brunette-D’Souza (firstname.lastname@example.org).
