Foreign service workers reach agreement with government

by | Sep 28, 2013

After striking a deal to move to a higher wage scale and end a six-month rotating strike, Canada’s foreign service officers are now pledging to turn toward clearing a backlog of visa applications abroad created by the job action. The contract deal came after Treasury Board president Tony Clement had initially pledged to stick to a standard, or “patterned” offer – only to return to the table, after the Public Service Labour Relations Board found that he negotiated in bad faith. Both sides then made concessions to reach a deal.   Visit our Canada Immigration and Visas section if you want to find out more about emigrating to Canada.
