(Montreal) The Union of Taxation Employees, on strike, says it received a lesser offer from the Canada Revenue Agency than the one presented to the 120,000 other members of the Public Service Alliance of Canada who were negotiating with the Treasury Board.
The Union of Taxation Employees is also affiliated with the PSAC and its members are still on strike, unlike the other four Alliance groups, which have reached a tentative agreement to renew their collective agreements in the Sunday night to last Monday. It represents 35,000 members.
During a Wednesday press conference in Ottawa, the national president of the Union of Taxation Employees, Marc Brière, claimed that his members were “insulted” and that they had interpreted the offer as a slap in the face. .
Alongside him, PSAC National President Chris Aylward warned that if members of his affiliate union don’t get a better deal on the table soon, they will march to the Liberal Party of Canada convention on May 4-6 in Ottawa.
