Essential Services Designation Letters Sent by the Treasury Board
This is to inform all SH Group members that the Essential Services Designation letters that the Treasury Board has been sending out to our members are without any consequences to our members for the current round of bargaining.
Receiving or signing these letters does not in any way change the arbitration route that we have agreed to for the upcoming SH bargaining round. If you receive this type of letter, we recommend that you sign it.
For the SH Group, it only informs you that your position is designated essential and would only have had an impact if we would not have agreed to be on the arbitration route.
- For this round (transition period), every group at PIPSC is on the Conciliation-Strike route EXCEPT the SH Group.
- The reason is that both parties have agreed to the arbitration route; this was only offered to the SH Group because of different circumstances.
