Memorandum of Agreement on Scientific Integrity

In contrast to previous years when the documents used during the ratification process consisted of initialled texts and a French translation that had not received the Treasury Board’s approval, we have prepared these materials to help you make an informed decision about your Group’s tentative agreement. The full collective agreement is not currently available in both languages and waiting for the Employer to provide its translation would impose an unacceptable delay on the ratification vote process. Please be assured that the information contained in these documents is both current and complete.
