National Joint Council directives

CAPE is a member of the National Joint Council (NJC), which brings together employers and bargaining agents to resolve problems and establish terms of employment that apply across the public service. The NJC has developed several directives and allowances that complement and clarify the terms of your collective agreement. 

These directives and allowances are negotiated between the NJC, the employer and all public service labour unions to provide guidelines and provisions that may be unique to your working situation or conditions. 

Subjects covered by the directives include government travel, relocation, commuting assistance, isolated posts and government housing, foreign service directives, work force adjustment, safety and health, the bilingual bonus and public service health plans.
