The RCEA has finalized the bargaining teams for all categories, AS, AD, CS, OP, PG, and TO. The Labour Relations team has been busy preparing proposals based on submissions received from the membership.

We appreciate that those employees represented by PSAC and other larger groups have come to a settlement with the Federal Government. These settlements may well have implications for our round of bargaining as well. We have reviewed these settlements in light of our own round of bargaining, which is set to commence soon.

Currently, negotiations have not formally commenced, however; the RCEA anticipates meeting with the NRC in September 2023. The first step will be for the parties to exchange proposals, following this mutually agreeable dates will be selected for each respective category for bargaining to commence. We anticipate significant progress during the autumn months.

We appreciate your patience and hope to provide additional information to the membership this fall. Please watch our website for future updates on bargaining.
