The federal workers strike is over for employees with the Treasury Board, but it continues for workers with the Canada Revenue Agency.
A release from the Public Service Alliance of Canada at 1:30am Monday details that negotiators with PSAC and the federal government had come to terms for a tentative agreement covering four of the union’s bargaining units for 120,000 workers.
The deal gives Treasury Board workers a 12.6 percent wage increase over a four year contract along with “significant protections around remote work.”
It also offers a $2500 one time lump sum payment that represents an additional 3.7 percent salary bump for the average union member in the Treasury Board bargaining units.
Now that the walkout is over, they must report to work at 9 o’clock Monday morning or for their next scheduled shift.
A deal has not been reached for the 35,000 striking employees with the Canada Revenue Agency as their walkout begins a thirteenth day.
Negotiators for the CRA workers had been calling for a 22.5 percent wage increase over three years.
