Access our summary of all the new provisions of the EC collective agreement. In 2011, Operation Branch implemented a regular practice of monitoring overtime. The practice identifies the top 10 staff by region where overtime balances are highest for a set period. The balances are then sent to the employee`s district manager to identify any lags, indicate the reason for overtime, and validate and confirm the number of hours. Management indicated that it was reviewing overtime balance sheets by verifying the company`s management documentation used to verify working time schedules. This allows management to become aware of the magnitude of overtime expenses and to offer the possibility of validating operating assumptions.

The objective of this Directive is to provide information on the new codes of law for lump sum payment instead of redundancy pay to be paid under different collective agreements and authorisation instruments. The human resources department agrees with the results of the audit of overtime management report and accepts the recommendations. This agreement is consistent with comparisons obtained by other federal law enforcement agencies and maintains the pay equity we achieved in the previous round of negotiations. This is a very competitive agreement and the result of the solidarity of PSAC/CIU members who work within the CBSA from coast to coast. As far as compensation, finishing rights and the protection of armaments are concerned, this agreement is dramatically better than the final offer made to our team in the spring and on which the government wanted to impose a vote last summer. .
