Signing the new collective agreement

Image of a dark blue checkmark with light blue highlight along the bottom surface, and two short, nearly horizontal lines adjacent to the right side of the long arm of the check mark. Background is light red for the top 80% of the image, and has darker red gears and ballot boxes embossed onto it. There is a grey horizontal line demarcating the bottom 20% of the image, which is filled with a darker red and the PSAC/AFPC logo centred in the space. At the top left of the image there is a blue shape reminiscent of a shield with "CRA | ARC" printed in a darker shade of the same blue.

A message from Marc Briere (version française)

June 23, 2023

Now that the tentative agreement between PSAC/UTE and CRA has been approved by the Governor in Council and the Governor General of Canada, the parties will be signing the new collective agreement on Tuesday, June 27, 2023.

The date of signing is the date on which our contract takes effect.  Everyone in the bargaining unit on that date is eligible to receive the one-time pensionable lump sum payment in the amount of $2,500.00. 

CRA has 180 days from the date of signing the new collective agreement to:

  • implement the new rates of pay,
  • provide retroactive pay effective to the expiry date of the old contract, and
  • pay the one-time lump sum payment in the amount of $2,500.00.

We will follow up with the Agency as to when these payments will be made. Further information will be provided as soon as it becomes available.

In solidarity,
