It’s official. Agriculture Union members employed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency have ratified a new collective agreement. Our bargaining agent, the Public Service Alliance of Canada, announced the result of the contract vote on June 6.

Pay increases negotiated at the table, are retroactive to January 2012.

Our CFIA members owe a large debt of thanks to the members of their bargaining team, who never let up their determination to achieve the best possible agreement through two years of very difficult negotiations.

Details of the new contract may be found HERE on the PSAC Web site.
