The government will have succeeded in preventing us from negotiating our pension plan.
In a decision rendered on February 13, the Supreme Court of Canada refused to hear from UCCO-SACC-CSN concerning the unconstitutionality of a paragraph of the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations Act (LRTPF) that prohibits bargaining agents of the federal public service from properly negotiating their pension plan and staffing.
Since 2002, UCCO-SACC-CSN has led the battle on this matter. In June 2018, the Superior Court agreed with us. But the government chose to appeal. Unfortunately, a year later, the Court of Appeal overturned this decision. By refusing to allow the legal process to continue, the country’s highest court is restricting our right to negotiate.
A tour will be launched shortly so that all regional executives are informed of the follow-up to this decision.
