Are these agreements typically retroactive? Is if 1.25% from 2017 onwards (plus 0.5% for 2016)?
If we look here :http://psacunion.ca/sites/psac/files/attachments/pdfs/20161217_barg_pa_ca_summary_table_bi.pdf
It states in the agreement:
Annex B – Rates of Pay
Basic economic increase:
Effective June 21, 2014: 1.25%
Effective June 21, 2015: 1.25%
Effective June 21, 2016: 0.5% wage adjustment for all groups and levels
Effective June 21, 2016: 1.25%
Effective June 21, 2017: 1.25%
650$ Signing bonus
With the agreement expiring in 2018, and it being a four year agreement, it would appear that it will be back dated to 2014.
We will wait to see the deal the military gets, but it appears as though this will be the end result for the Public Service
That being said, the agreement hasn't been ratified yet, and I wouldn't hold my breath before end January at the earliest.
