S&A- Bargaining update no 14 Ratification vote result
The S&A Group has ratified the tentative agreement with the CFIA. Thank you to all the members who participated in the vote.
The CFIA also have to ratify on their end. Their ratification process is three fold: CFIA, Treasury Board, and the Governor in Council. We are expecting the employer to complete their ratification process around the end of March, beginning of April. Following ratification by both parties, the next step is formally to put together the new collective agreement document.
The parties will then meet to sign it and it will become effective immediately upon signing by both parties.
The Employer then will have 90 days from the signature date to implement retroactive pay. They will have 4 months (3 months after 1 month after the signature date) from the signature date to provide you with your severance information package. We will post further details as they become available.
