Rappelons que, dans cette affaire, l¡¯arbitre avait conclu que certains employ¨¦s avaient droit ¨¤ la protection salariale lorsqu¡¯ils font l¡¯objet d¡¯une reclassification ¨¤ la baisse.</p> <p>Le 24 mai, la Cour a entendu le plaidoyer de l¡¯employeur et rendu aussit?t sa d¨¦cision, un fait rarissime. L¡¯AFPC n¡¯a m¨ºme pas eu ¨¤ pr¨¦senter ses arguments, car son m¨¦moire, qui expliquait clairement sa position, a suffi ¨¤ la Cour pour rendre son verdict.</p> <p>Selon la position de l¡¯AFPC, la protection salariale devrait toujours s¡¯appliquer lorsque l¡¯employeur proc¨¨de unilat¨¦ralement ¨¤ une reclassification ¨¤ la baisse.</p> <p>Cette affaire est certes importante pour les employ¨¦s touch¨¦s, mais elle d¨¦fend ¨¦galement les droits d¡¯autres membres de l¡¯AFPC qui pourraient ¨ºtre confront¨¦s ¨¤ des situations semblables.?</p> <h3><strong>Deux groupes de travailleurs sont touch¨¦s</strong></h3> <p>L¡¯affaire concerne deux groupes de travailleurs qui avaient ¨¦t¨¦ classifi¨¦s selon des normes classification distinctes.<br /> ??? ?Environ 80 employ¨¦s de l¡¯Agence du revenu du Canada (ARC) ayant appris ¨¤ l¡¯automne 2011 qu¡¯ils seraient transf¨¦r¨¦s ¨¤ Services partag¨¦s Canada (SPC).?<br /> ??? ?Environ 60 employ¨¦s affect¨¦s aux activit¨¦s de la f¨ºte du Canada qui ont ¨¦t¨¦ transf¨¦r¨¦s de la Commission de la capitale nationale ¨¤ Patrimoine canadien en septembre 2013.</p> <p>¨¤ l¡¯automne 2013, les membres des deux groupes ont appris que leurs salaires seraient revus ¨¤ la baisse puisqu¡¯ils ont ¨¦t¨¦ transf¨¦r¨¦s dans des postes correspondant aux classifications de la fonction publique (AS, CR, GT, GS).</p> <h3><strong>L¡¯AFPC remporte une victoire importante</strong></h3> <p>L¡¯AFPC a d¨¦pos¨¦ un grief de principe en faisant valoir que l¡¯employeur devait se conformer aux dispositions sur la protection salariale pr¨¦vues dans la convention collective. En d¨¦cembre 2014, la Commission des relations de travail et de l¡¯emploi dans la fonction publique (CRTEFP) a entendu le grief.</p> <p>En vertu de la protection salariale, aucun employ¨¦ ne peut subir une baisse de salaire. De plus, il continue de toucher les augmentations salariales, telles qu¡¯ont ¨¦t¨¦ n¨¦goci¨¦es. C¡¯est en 1982 que l¡¯AFPC a n¨¦goci¨¦ une disposition sur la pleine protection salariale en cas de reclassification ¨¤ la baisse.</p> <p>En juillet 2016, l¡¯arbitre a reconnu que les employ¨¦s avaient ¨¦t¨¦ reclassifi¨¦s ¨¤ la baisse et qu¡¯ils ¨¦taient donc admissibles ¨¤ la pleine protection salariale.</p> <h3><strong>Le Conseil du Tr¨¦sor se contredit</strong></h3> <p>Au moment du transfert des employ¨¦s, l¡¯AFPC a fait valoir qu¡¯il s¡¯agissait d¡¯un r¨¦am¨¦nagement des effectifs et que l¡¯employeur devait n¨¦gocier les conditions applicables, en permettant notamment aux employ¨¦s d¡¯opter ou non pour le transfert.</p> <p>Dans le cas de l¡¯ARC, l¡¯AFPC a d¨¦pos¨¦ un grief de principe et a t¨¦moign¨¦ devant la Commission des relations de travail de la fonction publique. Dans cette <strong><a href="http://www.pslreb-crtefp.gc.ca/decisions/fulltext/2016-61_f.asp">d¨¦cision</a></strong>, l¡¯arbitre a conclu qu¡¯il n¡¯existait pas de situation de r¨¦am¨¦nagement des effectifs, car il n¡¯y avait pas de perte d¡¯emploi; les employ¨¦s ¨¦taient simplement transf¨¦r¨¦s.</p> <p>Le Conseil du Tr¨¦sor affirmait que ces cas n¡¯¨¦taient pas des transferts. Il pr¨¦tendait plut?t que les postes avaient ¨¦t¨¦ abolis ¨¤ l¡¯ARC et ¨¤ la CCN et que de nouveaux postes avaient ¨¦t¨¦ cr¨¦¨¦s ¨¤ Services partag¨¦s Canada et ¨¤ Patrimoine canadien, venant ainsi contredire sa position d¡¯avant.</p> </div> </div> </div> <section class="field field-name-field-topics field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above view-mode-rss"><h2 class="field-label">Topics:&nbsp;</h2><ul class="field-items"><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/topics/federal-government">Federal government</a></li><li class="field-item odd"><a href="/352/topics/wages">Wages</a></li></ul></section><section class="field field-name-field-publisher field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above view-mode-rss"><h2 class="field-label">Publisher:&nbsp;</h2><ul class="field-items"><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/publisher/communications-and-political-action">Communications and Political Action</a></li></ul></section><section class="field field-name-field-embedded-image field-type-image field-label-above view-mode-rss"><h2 class="field-label">Embedded Image:&nbsp;</h2><div class="field-items"><figure class="clearfix field-item even"><img class="image-style-none" src="/352/sites/psac/files/court_gavel_0.jpg" width="2121" height="1414" alt="Marteau de cour" /></figure></div></section><div class="field field-name-field-image-placement field-type-list-text field-label-above view-mode-rss"> <div class="field-label">Image Placement:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even">Top Right Half</div> </div> </div> Thu, 25 May 2017 17:29:01 +0000 calugaj 5907 at/352 PSAC wins as Federal Court upholds salary protection https://www.google.com//352/psac-wins-federal-court-upholds-salary-protection <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden view-mode-rss"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"><p>The Federal Court of Appeal has dismissed a Treasury Board request for a judicial review of an <strong><a href="http://www.pslreb-crtefp.gc.ca/decisions/fulltext/2016-61_e.asp">adjudication decision</a></strong> that ruled certain employees were entitled to salary protection after being classified downwards.</p> <p>On May 24, in a rare move, the Court issued its ruling shortly after hearing only the employer¡¯s arguments. The Court did not need to hear PSAC¡¯s presentation, as it was able to make its ruling on the basis of our written submission.</p> <p>PSAC¡¯s position was that salary protection should always apply when the employer unilaterally acts to classify an employee at a lower level.</p> <p>This case is not only important to the affected employees but also defends the rights of other PSAC members who might face a similar circumstance.</p> <h3><strong>Two groups of workers are affected now</strong></h3> <p>The case affects two groups of workers who had been classified under unique classification standards:</p> <ul><li>About 80 former employees of the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA), who were told in the fall of 2011 they would move to Shared Services Canada (SSC)</li> <li>About 60 employees who work on Canada Day festivities who were transferred from the National Capital Commission (NCC) to Canadian Heritage (PCH) in September 2013</li> </ul><p>In the fall of 2013, members in the two groups were told that their salaries would be going down as they were ¡°matched¡± to public service classifications (e.g. AS, CR, GT, GS).</p> <h3><strong>PSAC grieved and won a major victory</strong></h3> <p>PSAC filed a policy grievance, arguing the employer now had to abide by the salary protection language in our contracts. The grievance was heard by the Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board in December 2014.</p> <p>With salary protection, no employee ever faces a drop in salary ¨C in fact they continue to receive negotiated pay increases, as negotiated. Full salary protection in the event of a downward reclassification is something negotiated by the PSAC in 1982.</p> <p>In July 2016, the adjudicator recognized the employees as having been reclassified downwards, and therefore eligible for full salary protection.</p> <h3><strong>Treasury Board contradicted itself</strong></h3> <p>When the employees were first moved, PSAC argued it was a workforce adjustment and the employer needed to negotiate the terms and conditions that would apply, including allowing the employees a choice of whether or not to move.</p> <p>In the CRA situation we filed a policy grievance and went before the Public Service Labour Relations Board. In that <strong><a href="http://www.pslreb-crtefp.gc.ca/decisions/fulltext/2013-23_e.asp">Board decision</a></strong>, the adjudicator agreed with the employer¡¯s argument that this was not a workforce adjustment situation because there was no job loss ¨C the employees were simply transferred.</p> <p>Treasury Board argued these moves were not transfers but that the positions were cut at the CRA and NCC and new positions created at Shared Services Canada and Canadian Heritage, in direct contradiction to their position in the earlier case.</p> <p>?</p> </div> </div> </div> <section class="field field-name-field-topics field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above view-mode-rss"><h2 class="field-label">Topics:&nbsp;</h2><ul class="field-items"><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/topics/federal-government">Federal government</a></li><li class="field-item odd"><a href="/352/topics/wages">Wages</a></li></ul></section><section class="field field-name-field-publisher field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above view-mode-rss"><h2 class="field-label">Publisher:&nbsp;</h2><ul class="field-items"><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/publisher/communications-and-political-action">Communications and Political Action</a></li></ul></section><section class="field field-name-field-embedded-image field-type-image field-label-above view-mode-rss"><h2 class="field-label">Embedded Image:&nbsp;</h2><div class="field-items"><figure class="clearfix field-item even"><img class="image-style-none" src="/352/sites/psac/files/court_gavel_0.jpg" width="2121" height="1414" alt="Court gavel" /></figure></div></section><div class="field field-name-field-image-placement field-type-list-text field-label-above view-mode-rss"> <div class="field-label">Image Placement:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even">Top Right Half</div> </div> </div> Thu, 25 May 2017 15:21:37 +0000 calugaj 5906 at/352 Fin de la contestation judiciaire de l¡¯AFPC concernant la r¨¦duction des salaires https://www.google.com//352/node/5630 <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden view-mode-rss"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"><p>La Cour supr¨ºme du Canada a d¨¦cid¨¦ de ne pas entendre la contestation judiciaire de l¡¯AFPC concernant l¡¯ancienne loi d¡¯ex¨¦cution du budget des conservateurs (loi C-10), qui imposait une r¨¦duction des salaires d¨¦j¨¤ n¨¦goci¨¦s pour les fonctionnaires f¨¦d¨¦raux.</p> <p>Selon le syndicat, la loi violait les droits ¨¦nonc¨¦s au paragraphe 2 <em>d</em>) de la Charte (??libert¨¦ d¡¯association ?).</p> <p>??Nous sommes surpris de la d¨¦cision de la Cour supr¨ºme, car elle contredit un jugement r¨¦cent concernant le droit de n¨¦gocier collectivement??, affirme Robyn Benson, pr¨¦sidente nationale de l¡¯AFPC. ??La loi C-10 restreignait grandement les droits de nos membres.

class="field-item even"><p>The Liberal party¡¯s promise to promote and <a href="/352/psac-members-fight-protect-canadas-parks-and-water-ways">protect Canada¡¯s national parks</a> falls short of what is needed particularly because it encompasses a proposal to create 5,000 youth jobs at the expense of secure and stable employment at Parks Canada.</p> <p>The Liberals have indicated that they will address staff shortages by <a href="https://www.liberal.ca/realchange/real-change-creating-jobs-and-opportunity-for-young-canadians/">hiring young workers</a> as guides, interpreters and in other positions at Parks Canada instead of creating regular employment opportunities.</p> <p>¡°We are concerned that this approach will lead to unfair working conditions for younger workers, and it does not constitute real and meaningful reinvestment in our national parks,¡± said Doug Marshall, president of the Union of National Employees, a component of the Public Service Alliance of Canada.</p> <p>Students who are employed by Parks Canada are paid separate and inferior wages under the Federal Student Work Experience Program. In the name of gaining work experience they are paid less than the workers they replace yet they perform the same work as regular employees.</p> <p>Job creation is not about trading one type of job for another. Good jobs for young workers should not be created at the expense of workers already employed.</p> <p>PSAC calls on the Liberal Party to create good jobs for young workers that are stable, paid a fair rate and provide career opportunities but not at the expense of the current workforce at Parks Canada.</p> </div> </div> </div> <section class="field field-name-field-topics field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above view-mode-rss"><h2 class="field-label">Topics:&nbsp;</h2><ul class="field-items"><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/topics/cutbacks">Cutbacks</a></li><li class="field-item odd"><a href="/352/topics/job-security">Job security</a></li><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/topics/part-time-work">Part time work</a></li><li class="field-item odd"><a href="/352/topics/wages">Wages</a></li></ul></section><section class="field field-name-field-publisher field-type-taxonomy-term-reference field-label-above view-mode-rss"><h2 class="field-label">Publisher:&nbsp;</h2><ul class="field-items"><li class="field-item even"><a href="/352/publisher/communications-and-political-action">Communications and Political Action</a></li></ul></section> Fri, 02 Oct 2015 15:04:50 +0000 calugaj 4148 at/352 Plan d¡¯action de l¡¯AFPC pour les centres de services ¨¤ la client¨¨le (page 2) https://www.google.com//352/node/3884 <div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden view-mode-rss"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item even"><h2><strong>Initiatives ¨¤ l¡¯¨¦chelle locale</strong></h2> <p><strong>Communication et mobilisation</strong></p> <p>Taches des sections locales comptant des membres dans les centres de services ¨¤ la client¨¨le :</p> <ul><li>Dresser le plus t?t possible une liste des courriels des membres concern¨¦s, si ce n¡¯est pas d¨¦j¨¤ fait.
