There have been many recent settlements in the Core Public Service. Hopefully, this means that NRC will soon be in a position to bargain with the RCEA. We have been told that they are in the process of getting their mandates from the Treasury Board. In anticipation of NRC receiving mandates, a number of bargaining committee meetings have been scheduled. These are not bargaining sessions with NRC but rather preparatory meetings for the RCEA. The list of meetings is below. No meetings have yet been scheduled for the CS group as the Core CS Group has not yet settled.

March 20, 2017 – OP Group – to prepare demands.

March 27, 2017 – AD, AS and PG Groups – to prepare demands.

April 5, 2017 – TO Group – to select bargaining team.

We anticipate that bargaining dates for the TO Group will be established shortly.
