CFIA-VM MOU – Work Description Grievances
On February 27, 2015 the Professional Institute of the Public Service (PIPSC) of Canada and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding to move forward on the several hundred outstanding work description grievances that resulted from the roll out of the generic work descriptions in 2011.
Attached is a copy of the MOU. We have enforced tight time frames and the participation of the Executive Directors in the process to reduce the amount of conflict around assignment of duties.
We are encouraged by the level of cooperation we are receiving with the CFIA at the moment and wish to pursue solid resolutions at this time as the Agency moves forward with its transformation initiatives. Our intent is to protect the structure and integrity of the VM group.
Should you have any questions please contact Emilie Gagné, Classification Officer, PIPSC.
