NRC IS and LS Bargaining Update # 4

The Public Service Labour Relations Board has not yet made a decision on the preliminary objection we reported on back at the end of May. We are still waiting for the Board to issue a decision on the preliminary objection and to allow for the selection of an arbitrator. We understand members frustrations regarding these long delays and PIPSC has urged the Board to expedite its decision. Our current understanding is that the application is with the Board’s legal department, but they have declined to tell us the issue which is holding up the application. In the meantime members continue to accrue severance pay, which adds to the amounts you will receive when the contract is settled at a rate of approximately 2% per year, should severance be awarded to the employer.
