Negotiation meetings planned next week for CRA workers

A final round of negotiations is planned between the Public Service Agency of Canada and the Canada Revenue Agency.

Around 35,000 CRA workers voted overwhelmingly in favour of strike action. They’ve been without a contract for more than a year.

Workers are in a legal strike position as of April 14th.

“Our members have sent a strong message to CRA,” says Chris Aylward, PSAC national president. “Workers can’t wait, and we’re ready to show this government we won’t let workers fall behind.”

Negotiations are planned from April 17 to 20.

This comes as millions of Canadians prepare to file tax returns due on May 1.

The Government of Canada says, “We are confident that the parties will find many areas of potential compromise and trade-off, through honest discussions and concessions by both sides, during the upcoming negotiations.”
