This Annex shall be considered to form part of all collective agreements between the parties and the workers who must have direct access to it. This collective agreement is signed during the COVID-19 pandemic. Given the exceptional circumstances and social distancing restrictions imposed by health authorities, the parties have agreed to sign this collective agreement electronically. b) The period of thirty (30) working days within which the employer must respond to the final stage may be extended, by mutual agreement between the employer and the competent representative of the Institute, to a maximum of forty (40) working days. With effect from 31 December 2013, Articles 30.01 (b) &c) are deleted from the collective agreement. The employer and the Institute share the desire to resolve, to the extent possible, disputes or disagreements through a cooperative process characterized by prompt and open discussion and creative problem solving. To this end, the following dispute settlement procedures shall apply. ** 13.14 From 1 January 2018, leave with pay granted to a worker in accordance with Articles 13.02, 13.09, 13.10, 13.12 and 13.13 shall be granted; The PSAC reimburses the employer for the employee`s salary and benefit costs during the authorized leave, with payment, in accordance with the conditions set jointly. The Parties acknowledge that the current washing period referred to in Article 60.01 may not meet the needs of all workers due to the many different sizes and arrangements of slaughterhouses throughout the country. As of October 1, 31, 2007, staff will be compensated in accordance with the corresponding salary structure set out in Appendix A of the PSAC/CRA collective agreement on October 31, 2007, until the employee is converted to the new ACS-SP classification standard. 33.08 A worker may not earn or obtain leave credits under this Agreement, or in any month or in any fiscal year for which the worker has been credited or granted, in accordance with the terms of another collective agreement with which the employer is associated or other rules or rules of the employer. 15.15 If it turns out that the nature of the complaint is such that a direct reference to the final level is desirable, the first level may be eliminated by mutual agreement between the employer and the worker and, where appropriate, the institute. The parties acknowledge that an extension of these clauses is carried out without prejudice or precedent and that they do not in any way commit the parties to a specific position that they wish to assume during collective bargaining for overtime, transfers and/or the liquidation of leave or compensation in cash or in situations of remuneration problems.
This Annex to the Collective Agreement applies to all members represented by the Public Utilities Alliance of Canada (PSCA) for whom the CRA is the employer. Unless otherwise stated, the provisions of Parts I to VI shall not apply to other delivery initiatives. (b) The objective of the first level is to disclose information about the problem or disagreement, facilitate open discussions and consider a voluntary solution acceptable to all parties to the complaint. . . .
