Government offers new deal to PSAC, bargaining continues

The federal government has presented a new offer for federal services workers, the Public Service Alliance of Canada announced Friday. A spokesperson for the union said it has resumed talks with the Treasury Board after receiving a new offer and will continue bargaining over the weekend in order to reach a deal for the 120,000 federal public service members it represents. Talks are also ongoing for the 35,000 members at Canada Revenue Agency. The union is bargaining for a 13.5 per cent wage increase over three years, remote work legislation and other conditions. Approximately 150 PSAC members work in Nunavut. Dozens of workers have been striking at the picket line in Iqaluit since the strike, one of the largest in Canadian history, began April 19.
