Collective bargaining for a new contract for TC members has taken too long.

In the summer of 2012, our members started hearing rumours that Treasury Board was planning to start paying employees “pay in arrears”. This means that instead of being paid in real time, you would be paid for the two preceding weeks. Eventually, when you leave your employment, you will be paid the final two weeks owing to you. No matter how you look at it, this would create a hardship for our members because in order to implement the new system, the employer is going to have to hold back two weeks of pay.
