**PSTAR Severance Grievances Update**

We want to provide an update to members who filed grievances when the CRA refused to include their years of service with the Ontario Ministry of Revenue as part of the calculation of their severance pay entitlement. The matter is currently scheduled to proceed at the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations and Employment Board on January 23-25, 2018 in Toronto, Ontario. Given the multiplicity of issues and importance of the case we do not anticipate three days is sufficient to hear the matter nor do we anticipate a conclusion on January 25. We will provide more updates as the case progresses and we would encourage you to check the website periodically for more information. Also please feel free to contact your local AFS sub-group president for updates and more details.
