The new collective agreements for the PA, TC and EB groups cover the period 2018-2021, while the new PSAC-UTE collective agreement covers the period 2016-2021. All agreements provide for fair wages, no concessions and improved working conditions. Although advisory, committees do not have the authority to amend the provisions of collective agreements or regulations that affect the conditions of employment of workers. They do not interfere with management`s authority, administrative obligation or the legal rights of the union, as defined by laws or collective agreements. The goal is to communicate freely and solve things. The majority of PSAC members in the Program and Administrative (PA), Technical Services (TC), Education and Library Science (EB) and PSAC-UTE (Canada Revenue Agency) units voted in favour of their respective preliminary agreements. The four units represent nearly 110,000 federal public service employees who have gone beyond Canadians to support Canadians during this pandemic. The Public Service Alliance of Canada is organized into 17 components and our component is the Union of Health and Environmental Workers (UHEW). It consists of approximately 11,500 members of 52 locals spread from coast to coast, north and south above Canada. Tasks include processing claims and staff claims, holding three-year agreements, representing members with respect to classification or working conditions, working relationships with the employer, and ensuring the implementation and interpretation of the collective agreement signed by the PSAC and the Ministry of Finance (TBS) secretariat.
Members are organized on the premises, and our headquarters in the National Capital Region (Ottawa) and include 5 buildings throughout the NCR. Monica is responsible for the next residents of Downtown and Metro Vancouver, coordinates the work of Vancouver, North, Southern Interior and Vancouver Island Regional Women`s Committees and the Vancouver District Regional Council, as well as regional mobility coordinator for CFIA and FNHA members in BC. Monica also owns the regional portfolio of Racially Visible shares. I started working for the Government of Canada in April 1980. My 19th birthday was celebrated a week earlier. I was CR-2 in an unemployment insurance office (now a labour insurance office) when I entered my first picket line during the CR strike in September 1980. In 1981 (in May, when the memory is used), I got a CR-3 position at CIC Metro in Vancouver, the regional office of Immigration Canada. In September 1981, I got a CR-4 position at Labour Canada. Labour Canada was part of Human Resources Development Canada when it was founded in 1994. During my work for Labour Canada and HRDC, I have held a large number of local executive positions within the national component.
