Pay rates change within one hundred and eighty days (180) days from July 31, 2019. When retroactive and future changes to remuneration are implemented, rates are paid in the form of lump sums before wage changes: the collective agreement is applicable to federal employees in the Economics and Social Sciences (EC) group. We are negotiating the agreement with the Labour Council of Canada, which is covered by the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations Act. Wage rates will be adjusted within 180 days starting December 18, 2019. Changes in pay rates dated January 26, 2019 until the salary adjustment date are paid in the form of a lump sum payment in accordance with Schedule F. In particular, some collective agreements provide for lump sum payments to workers instead of retroactive wage increases or compensatory bonuses. Unless otherwise made by the CFO, these lump sum payments must also be made to workers excluded from the collective agreement as exclusions from business or confidentiality, although they are classified as a category or professional level under the collective agreement. Rates of pay not authorized by collective agreements are available on the open data portal. In 2017, the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations and Employment Board decided that civilian members of the RCMP should be considered public service officers under the ESS classification, which do essentially work similar to those of EC officials. When this decision comes into force, CADRE workers will be covered by the collective agreement and will be considered part of the EC`s bargaining unit.
In the meantime, existing RCMP conditions continue to apply to SSE members. However, these members can benefit from a number of CAPE benefits, including assistance in filing complaints and representation in discussions with the Ministry of Finance secretariat.
