Subject: Clarification on the distribution of the CS Collective Agreement
Dear CS Stewards,
Many of you contacted us to verify the employer claims that CS employees will only receive a hard copy of the CS Group collective agreement upon request. Article 27.02 pertaining to the distribution of the collective remains unchanged.
The Employer agrees to supply each employee with a copy of the Collective Agreement and any amendments thereto. Article 49.03 specifies that the provisions of the collective agreement must be implemented in120 days.
Departments cannot negotiate with stewards any changes to the articles of the Collective Agreement.
Our collective agreement was negotiated in good faith with Treasury Board.
Departments must be advised to send their suggestions to Treasury Board regarding any proposed changes to the collective agreement to be discussed at future rounds of bargaining.
