TBS cancels Phoenix meeting

February 16, 2018

Treasury Board had until October 21, 2017 (150 days after signing) to implement the collective agreements of EC and TR groups. As you already know, this date was not respected for all of our members.

In response, on January 23, 2018, CAPE filed a complaint with the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations and Employment Board to contest the employer's obvious violation of the law in not complying with this deadline.

As we reported late last year, CAPE filed two policy grievances on behalf of EC and TR members (one for each group). These grievances focused on the employer’s failure to deliver retroactive pay increases.

Last month, Treasury Board and CAPE agreed to meet in February to negotiate a solution to this very serious issue. Unfortunately, Treasury Board cancelled this meeting just two days before the scheduled date.

CAPE has been very patient and cooperative with Treasury Board, but patience has its limits.

We are now waiting for a firm date on their part, failing which it will be up to the Board to rule. We will keep you informed of any developments.
