PSAC continues bargaining with CRA
Talks resumed Tuesday between the Public Service Alliance of Canada and the Canada Revenue Agency as the union representing 35-thousand CRA employees attempts to get a deal to end their two-week-old strike. Canada’s largest public sector union reached a tentative agreement for the 120,000 other federal workers, bringing an end to what was being called the largest strike in Canadian history. They reached a tentative four-year contract agreement with the Treasury Board Sunday night that will give workers a 12.6 per cent raise and a $2,500 one-time lump sum payment. But PSAC says it’s entered into blitz negotiations for the 35,000 CRA workers still picketing. We now go to BCN’s Angela Stewart has more on how the talks are going.
