A collective study was proposed, and the team fought for it, but ultimately it was not assured. Although a joint study on wages has some advantages, the two previous joint studies have been marred by differences of opinion between the parties, particularly in terms of methodology and interpretation. As agreement on methodology and schedules is required, the employer could effectively discourage the SV team from submitting a dazzling proposal on wages and market adjustment in the next round. A specific study on the preparation of the next cycle. Collective agreements will not be updated until they formally enter into force, after both parties have “signed” the document in question. PSAC has reached an interim agreement that provides for wage increases, no concessions, improved working conditions and a revolutionary increase in the posted contribution rate for nearly 10,000 members of the Operational Services (SV) group on the Treasury Board.

We have gone into these negotiations to reach a central agreement that recognizes and supports it – and we have achieved results. The proposed market adjustments far exceeded the employer`s mandate.
Despite the team`s tireless efforts and pressure at the highest level of the Treasury Board to revamp the mandate to deal with market adjustment, no new mandate has been secured. The proposed alternative was to resolve the issue of open market adaptation. With such a restrictive mandate, the team was only able to obtain wage adjustments for the small Lightkeeper group, whose wages quickly fell below the minimum wage in British Columbia. The previous collective wage study, completed in 2014, was re-analysised and aged during this cycle to form the basis of our proposal for market adjustment. During the negotiations, both at the table and before the Public Interest Commission (PIC), the employer rejected our arguments that certain classifications or subgroups were paid below the market price.
