PSAC has successfully negotiated compensation for damages in Phoenix, which is significantly better than the employer`s agreement with other federal bargaining partners. Last year, the PSAC rejected the government`s meagre offer of 5 days of cash vacations, which was not enough and would have rewarded those who earn more while penalizing workers who earn less. The current agreement provides for a fair and equitable lump sum payment of $2,500 for PSAC members. A component also represents its members on issues such as classification issues and working conditions that are not already covered by collective agreements, as well as on all other issues that concern them exclusively within the separate division/agency/employer.
