Joint Learning Program Renewed

The renewal of the Joint Learning Program until June 2014 is one of the highlights of the tentative agreements reached by the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and the Treasury Board of Canada (TB) on October 4.

PSAC reached a tentative deal for new collective agreements for three of its five bargaining units with TB. Agreements for the PA, SV and EB groups will go into force only if they are ratified by members in votes over the coming weeks. Exploratory talks for the Border Services (FB) and Technical Services (TC) groups ended without agreement and regular bargaining will resume in 2011.
