The EC collective agreement applies to federal employees in the Economics and Social Science Services (EC) group. We negotiate the agreement with the Treasury Board of Canada, covered under the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations Act.
The most recent agreement was signed in June 2023 and will be in effect until June 21, 2026.

RCMP civilian members
In 2017, the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations and Employment Board decided that RCMP civilian members with the classification ESS, who perform substantively similar work to EC members of the public service, should be deemed public service employees. When that decision comes into effect, ESS employees will be covered by the EC collective agreement and considered part of the EC bargaining unit. Until then, existing RCMP terms and conditions remain in effect for ESS members. However, these members are entitled to some CAPE benefits, including support when filing complaints and representation in conversations with the Treasury Board Secretariat.
