This memorandum is extinguished with the issuance of the new enterprise policy instrument or (the expiration of the collective agreement), depending on what happens first. The rating agency recognizes the principles of openness, transparency, professional integrity and ensuring greater availability of information for all its employees and the Canadian public with respect to collective bargaining. The new collective agreements for the PA, TC and EB groups cover the period 2018-2021, while the new PSAC-UTE collective agreement covers the period 2016-2021. All agreements provide for fair wages, no concessions and improved working conditions. For indeterminate seasonal and part-time workers, the MST is assessed in the same way as it is unreasonable under the terms of the collective agreement. The severance provisions of the collective agreement are in addition to the MST. The AV, NR, RE, SH, SP, NRC (LS, IR, RO-RCO, TR), CRA (AFS), OSFI, CNSC (NUREG), NEB and NFB groups negotiated and ratified new collective agreements. Some groups continue their important work at the negotiating table. We stand in solidarity for a fair deal for every PIPSC member. As a separate employer, the rating agency is responsible for organizing its own collective bargaining and negotiations for unionized workers and setting pay levels for non-unionized workers. As such, the rating agency is responsible for negotiating collective agreements and negotiations with the following bargaining partners: the Public Service Alliance of Canada, the Tax Workers Union (PSAC-UTE) and the Professional Audit Service Institute of Canada, Financial and Scientific (PIPSC-AFS Group).
