Collective bargaining is how the union (the bargaining partner) and management find the terms of employment of the workers concerned (bargaining unit). National or federal labour law sets rules on how these negotiations are conducted and how conflicts are managed. The Government remains committed to entering into collective agreements with all outstanding bargaining units for this round of negotiations, including those represented by the PSAC. “I am pleased that PA employees, many of whom supported critical services to Canadians during the pandemic, have a new interim agreement and that all employees represented by PSAC are being compensated for the toll that the Phoenix payroll system has had on their lives.

The sector also leads the collective bargaining process, develops bargaining strategies and advises staff and human resources departments in departments and agencies of the central public administration on collective bargaining and collective agreements.
