The news last week that the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) has won major improvements to its members’ dental plan has prompted many PIPSC members to ask if they can soon expect similar improvements.
PIPSC and PSAC negotiate with the federal government separately. While no PIPSC agreement has yet been reached, we hope the conclusion of the PSAC agreement will now allow us and other unions to successfully negotiate an agreement of our own.
With PIPSC in the lead, we are negotiating the dental plan in conjunction with other federal public service unions through the National Joint Council's Dental Board.
We will be certain to inform all affected members as soon as an agreement is reached.
