When a worker opts for the extended parental leave option under the EE and begins his leave before the signing of the collective agreement, he receives an allowance of 93% of his weekly salary for all weeks during which he takes parental leave and up to 37 weeks for the egg. If the worker remains on extended parental leave, the allowance expires after a maximum of 37 weeks. However, the egg will continue until the worker returns to work or until the ei benefit stops depleting. Standard parental leave after IE is 35 weeks to be taken within 52 weeks. Under the collective agreement, a worker is entitled to a maximum of 37 weeks of supplementary compensation. This would cover a week of waiting and an extra week. The new agreement also provides for the registration of five weeks of paternity leave under the PQ or an additional five weeks of joint parental leave under THE EI. The worker is subject to the provisions of the collective agreement under which he begins his parental leave, regardless of the date of the maternity leave. Negotiations on new collective agreements for most members began more than a year ago, but the government has repeatedly rejected our reasonable proposals for a fair settlement.
The PA negotiating team reached an interim agreement with the Board of Directors. Highlights of the negotiations include improvements to the PA collective agreement: members of the Education and Library Science (EB), Operations Services (SV) and PSAC-UTE (Canada Revenue Agency) groups have also recently ratified their preliminary agreements. PSAC is working with the Treasury Board to finalize the text and schedules of the new agreements and expects the new contracts to be signed in the coming weeks. Separately, the parties signed the agreement on the protocol on the negotiation of the working conditions of civilian members of the RCPV, who would be considered psac bargaining units. OTTAWA, ON, July 10, 2020 /CNW/CNW/ – In keeping with its obligation to enter into agreements that are fair to both workers and Canadians, the Canadian government reached a preliminary agreement on July 9, 2020 with Canada`s largest federal public service union, the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC). If ratified, the Canadian government will have reached agreements for this round of negotiations, which will cover nearly 60 per cent of public servants. In cases where workers are subject to different collective agreements that do not have the same language, each worker is subject to the provisions of his collective agreement for eligibility and the amount of parental allowance. Detailed information on the agreements, both for the PA group and on common issues, as well as on the final text, will soon be shared by PSAC. Pa members will also receive details on the electronic ratification vote in the coming days. PSAC expects the Phoenix Treasury Board to pay general damages (i.e. the $2,500 package) within the 180-day transposition period mentioned above for the collective agreement.
