To all Proud CS

The CS Bargaining Team continues to present the Tentative Agreement (TA) to members in workplaces all across Canada. We are pleased to answer your questions during these presentations and until the vote is completed, we will continue to do so.

On March 24, 2017, the CS Group posted a timeline of events leading up to the vote. The timeline has been modified and is posted with this update.

The CS Group is still waiting for TBS to send us the French translation of the TA. Meanwhile, the Institute has provided us with an unofficial translated version attached to this bargaining update.
