RCEA Collective Bargaining Update – May 2023

The RCEA has received several calls and emails about the recent tentative agreement following the Job Actions in the Public Service. We understand that you want to know how this affects your negotiations going forward. The settlement achieved between the Treasury Board Secretariat (TBS) and the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) will in certain aspects assist the RCEA with our bargaining efforts. However, given the NRC is a separate employer, your wages, working issues and conditions of employment are covered under a separate set of collective agreements. Our negotiation teams are just gearing up and we anticipate negotiations will commence this Autumn. We will post regular updates on the website.
