The compensation and labour relations sector (LLC) of the Secret Canada Board of Directors is responsible for all collective bargaining and negotiations within the core public administration, which includes all departments and agencies mentioned in the Financial Administration Act. On behalf of the employer, the Treasury Council of Canada, CLR renews 27 (27) collective agreements through negotiation with 15 negotiators. As a general rule, the negotiation of the first collective agreement lasts up to six months. Negotiations on renewal agreements will also take a few months, but the old agreement will remain in force during negotiations. In addition, certain administrative and trade union rights are defined. Therefore, if you want to exercise your rights in the workplace, you absolutely need to know and understand what the collective agreement says about those rights. This means treating your collective agreement as an important document. Here are some basic steps you can take to learn more about your collective agreement.

Procedures for the application of workers` rights are also defined in collective agreements. It is the union`s responsibility to enforce workers` rights by filing a complaint and, if necessary, pursuing the matter before arbitration. As a general rule, workers must apply for union representation to assert their rights when a complaint is rejected by their direct supervisor. The exact process of filing a complaint, and even the continuation of conciliation, varies in different collective agreements.
