The timely, efficient implementation of the NRC collective agreements continues to move forward. We are pleased to announce that all NRC employees except PE, FI and MGT will receive retroactive adjustments on the pay of Wednesday, November 27.  NRC is the first organization in the federal public service to pay retroactive adjustments under the newly negotiated collective agreements.

The calculation of your retroactive payment is based on the information in the pay system as of November 11, 2018 and covers the period from the date of expiry of your previous collective agreement to September 19, 2019, which is the date when newly negotiated salaries were implemented. Your pay information, available via the Compensation Web App (CWA), will provide a line by line itemization of each pay action for which retroactivity was calculated and paid.

Employees in a bargaining unit on the date of signing of the collective agreement are also entitled to receive a one-time, non-pensionable amount of $400, as part of the terms of the newly negotiated collective agreements. This amount will be paid at a later date and we will provide you with information on the timing of this payment as soon as it is determined.

There may be a few employees whose pay file is complex and requires more manual processing. For these employees, Compensation Advisors will communicate with you directly and provide you with information on how quickly the matter can be resolved.


Questions or concerns regarding the retroactive payments can be forwarded to the Compensation Services team.

We will update employees in the PE, FI and MGT categories as soon as the timeline for these salary updates is known.
