Sent April 17, 2016Objet: Union of Taxation Employees and Canada Revenue Agency Negotiations
I am Vice President of the Audit Financial and Scientific Group of the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada, although we are currently engaged in bargaining with the Canada Revenue Agency(CRA) that’s not why I’m contacting you today. I am writing to request CRA and Treasury Board return to the bargaining table with our colleagues who are represented by the Union of Taxation Employees a component of the Public Service Alliance of Canada.
The fact that our Brothers and Sisters have been without a contract since Nov 1 2012 is totally unacceptable. I encourage you as minister to provide direction to the Treasury Board and CRA that will result in a fair collective agreement for these dedicated members of the public service. Canadians rely on the services provided by a strong and knowledgeable public service, please show these employees that the Government of Canada appreciates their contribution to make Canada the wonderful country that it is.
