CFIA – VM Job Content Grievances – Update – April 24, 2015
This is to inform you of the latest developments on the job content grievances filed in 2011 as part of the National VM grievance campaign.
On February 27, 2015 the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC) and the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) entered into a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to move forward on the several hundred outstanding work description grievances that resulted from the roll out of the generic work descriptions in 2011.
This MOU establishes a joint consultation committee to discuss the content of the generic VM work descriptions issued in 2011. Both parties may present information and evidence regarding the content of the work descriptions.
Consultations will be held at the end of May 2015. We are currently at the stage of collecting data for the job content grievances. You are invited to participate in this process. For more information, please contact a VM executive member or Emilie Gagné, PIPSC Classification Officer before May 8, 2015.
