Hello Sisters and Brothers,
We know you are all impatiently waiting to learn when the new collective agreement will finally be signed. Many of you have contacted us regarding this issue.
In a victory for members at the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) who have gone above and beyond to support Canadians during this pandemic, PSAC-UTE has reached a tentative agreement that provides fair wages, no concessions and improved working conditions.
Negotiations for nearly 30,000 PSAC-UTE members at the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) will resume July 14.

On the heels of the Public Interest Commission (PIC) report released on April 30, PSAC-UTE (Union of Taxation Employees) National President Marc Brière has made it clear to Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) leadership that bargaining talks must resume.
The Public Interest Commission (PIC) has released recommendations for a settlement in contract negotiations between PSAC-UTE (Union of Taxation Employees) and the Canada Revenue Agency. The Commission sides with several union proposals through the following recommendations:
Statement from PSAC National President Chris Aylward:
Over the last two months of the COVID-19 pandemic, PSAC members have been on the frontlines battling the virus and delivering emergency financial support to millions of Canadians. They continue to provide these critical services, they do so without a new contract, and many have not seen wage increases for up to four years.
It’s time for the federal government to fix this by heading back to the bargaining table and reaching a settlement for over 140,000 public service workers.
