When a worker opts for the extended parental leave option under the EE and begins his leave before the signing of the collective agreement, he receives an allowance of 93% of his weekly salary for all weeks during which he takes parental leave and up to 37 weeks for the egg. If the worker remains on extended parental leave, the allowance expires after a maximum of 37 weeks. However, the egg will continue until the worker returns to work or until the ei benefit stops depleting. Standard parental leave after IE is 35 weeks to be taken within 52 weeks. Under the collective agreement, a worker is entitled to a maximum of 37 weeks of supplementary compensation. This would cover a week of waiting and an extra week. The new agreement also provides for the registration of five weeks of paternity leave under the PQ or an additional five weeks of joint parental leave under THE EI. A three-year contract will allow PSAC, as the main bargaining partner, to set the pace of public service negotiations in the next round of negotiations. You do your best in your workplace and your family every day. We have gone into these negotiations to reach a central agreement that recognizes and supports it – and we have achieved results.
Due to the implementation of our new collective agreements and retroactive compensation, we anticipate a delay, but the employer is committed to assessing these priorities in order to address Phoenix`s damages as quickly as possible. Workers who take parental leave prior to the signing of the new collective agreement are subject to the compensation provisions of the old collective agreement, and workers who take parental leave on the date or after the signing date are subject to the provisions of the new collective agreement.
