The Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is proud of the significant contribution its employees from all over the country make to the provision of services for Canadians. The CRA is respectful of the collective bargaining process and continues to be committed to engaging in productive discussions with the Public Service Alliance of Canada – Union of Taxation Employees (PSAC-UTE) in order to reach a new collective agreement that is both reasonable for Canadian taxpayers and fair to employees.
When PSAC-UTE members exercised their right to vote, the majority of them decided to give their union the authority to go on strike. This indicates that they will be in a position to legally strike on April 14, 2023. While our need is arriving at an arrangement at the bartering table, we perceive the right of representatives to take part in strike exercises.
The PSAC-UTE and the CRA have agreed to meet again from April 17 to 20, 2023, in accordance with our statement of March 31, 2023, with the intention of resuming negotiations in order to reach a new collective agreement. During the upcoming negotiations, we are confident that the parties will discover numerous areas of potential compromise and trade-off through open discussions and concessions on both sides.
The CRA is focused on being straightforward with Canadians about effects on administrations, would it be a good idea for them they occur, and Canadians can counsel the Reach Us page for additional subtleties and current stand by times.
The CRA is committed to resuming negotiations, bargaining in good faith, and making every effort to reach a settlement at the bargaining table that is both fair to employees and reasonable for taxpayers in order to end this labor dispute.
