New Contract: Government Librarians To Get Lump Sum For Dropping Pay Equity Lawsuit

The Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) and the federal government have reached a tentative deal over a new collective agreement.

PSAC is the largest union of Canadian government employees. Many government librarians are members.

Under the deal, members would receive a 6.8 per cent wage increase over four years.

Employees in the Education and Library Science Bargaining Unit will receive a $4,000 lump sum pensionable payment in exchange for the withdrawal of two pay equity complaints before the Canadian Human Rights Commission.

The deal must still be ratified by members.
