In this context, and in accordance with the recently concluded/signed agreements, an extension of the definition of the family, as proposed here, would be appropriate for the SV Group as part of a comprehensive settlement. In the spring of 2019, the government developed a new method of calculating retroactive payments to facilitate their implementation. The government has also negotiated broader implementation times, fair compensation for staff, recognizing longer deadlines and accountability measures. All of these measures are outlined in the agreement contained in the 34 federal public service agreements. So far, the new methodology has demonstrated compliance with the deadlines agreed under the agreement (chart #5). In the case of marketing and the creation of new agencies, consultation opportunities are provided to the union; However, in the event that agreements are not possible, the rating agency may continue to proceed with the transfer. During the 2011 round of negotiations, the parties agreed to conduct a wage study for the duration of the 2011 agreement to inform the ensuing round of negotiations (2014-2018).

By negotiating in good faith, the Canadian government has concluded 34 agreements during the current round of negotiations, involving more than 65,000 federal public service employees. These include 17 agreements with 11 bargaining agents representing CPA employees and 17 agreements with four (4) bargaining agents representing employees working in separate agencies, including the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), the National Research Council (NRC) and the National Film Board (NFB). Work will begin no later than 120 days from the signing of the collective agreement and will be completed before negotiations for the next round of negotiations are announced. The completion period may be extended by mutual agreement between the two parties. The employer believes that there is no evidence to predict wage increases for the SV group that exceed the cumulative increases that employees in the 17 CPA groups and 17 federal agency groups receive on a four-year contract. There is no reason to support the significantly higher economic increases envisaged by PSAC, in addition to market adjustments of between 9% and 39%.
