With more than 2,700 votes cast, the FI Community in the federal public service has voted overwhelmingly in support of the new tentative agreement (98.9%). The collective bargaining committee and the Board of Directors sincerely appreciate your support.
The next step will be to meet with the employer to formally sign the agreement and lay out an implementation timeline over the next two-to-three months. We were the first group to ratify our agreement and, thus, should be first in the queue for implementation.
Once the agreement, including salary grids, has been finalized and signed we will distribute it to all members immediately. Once the agreement is signed, the employer has 180 days to issue the retroactive payments or face penalties as set out in the agreement.
The new provisions in the collective agreement are effective on signing unless otherwise specified. If you have any additional questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
