Re:   Official Process of Collection of Bargaining Demands – Input Call

Dear Sisters/Brothers/Friends,

The National President of the Union of Taxation Employees has now received from the Negotiator assigned to UTE by the PSAC National President the Input Call for the collection of bargaining demands.

Accordingly, this Bulletin constitutes the official notice to Locals for the submission of bargaining demands.

All demands must be received in the UTE National Office by 5:00 p.m. on October 1, 2021. We suggest that you seek input from all your members by engaging them in the process. You can distribute this bulletin, hold meetings, form a Local bargaining committee or use other ways of collecting and organizing your Local’s bargaining demands.

Please use the UTE bargaining demand form. It should be noted that each bargaining demand must be on a separate form. Enter only one demand or proposal per form. You may submit the demand electronically or by sending a legible hard copy.  Remember to provide the rationale for each demand or describe the problem.

Each Local must limit the number of bargaining demands to ten (10).  If you send more than ten (10) demands, only the first ten (10) will be considered.  This does not include those received previously during the ongoing process that ended as of the issuance of this Bulletin.

Once all demands are received at the National Office, the PSAC and UTE will compile them. The National Bargaining Committee will meet subsequently to discuss, select and prioritize the demands. These will become the official demands that are submitted to the Canada Revenue Agency.

In Solidarity,

Adam Jackson
2nd National Vice-President
