Through sound and good faith negotiations, the Canadian government has concluded 34 agreements during this round of negotiations, which include more than 65,000 employees of the federal public service. These include comparisons with 15 different negotiators representing 17 bargaining units within the CPA and 17 groups of workers in separate agencies. This section explains how the 2014 collective agreement provided sufficient resources to fully address the market gaps identified in the 2015 joint study. The 2019 study shows that the SV Group`s businesses are generally competitive with their market comparators. Therefore, the 1% available for group-specific measures is sufficient to fill the remaining gaps if PSAC does so. In addition, the employer`s proposal is consistent with other agreements reached at the CPA and in separate agencies. Any agreement reached with the 11 negotiators for 17 CPA bargaining units during the current round provides for a four-year term. The same goes for separate agencies. The employer believes that the same duration should be included for the SV group. That is the appropriate term for this agreement at this stage, given the known factors. The SV agreement covers a wide range of types of employment, which are discussed in detail in the eight specific annexes of the group: to comply with Schedule L of the collective agreement, the PSAC and the employer conducted a collective study on wages for the SC group. This primary research study was completed by Mercer Canada in March 2019 and reviewed by both the union and the employer. The wage study consisted of four different SC jobs and the results showed that the SC positions examined all had wages comparable to the market (Table 17).
