TR collective bargaining

The TR collective agreement applies to federal employees in the Translation (TR) 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 April 2019 and will be in effect until April 22, 2022.

RCMP civilian members

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