TR: Notice to bargain shared with the employer

On December 20, CAPE sent its notice to bargain to the Employer (Treasury Board). That date is the earliest date on which notice can be given under the federal Public Sector Labour Relations Act. The parties now have twenty days to commence or schedule bargaining. The first meeting is therefore expected to take place early in 2022. The Association also confirmed that the members have again chosen arbitration in the event of an impasse in negotiations.
