Statement - Treasury Board President Welcomes Ratification of New Collective Agreement by Members of the Canadian Military Colleges Faculty Association



    OTTAWA, June 2 /CNW Telbec/ - The Honourable Vic Toews, President of the
Treasury Board, today released the following statement, after negotiations
were concluded with the Canadian Military Colleges Faculty Association that
represents the University Teaching (UT) Group:
    "I am very pleased that we have reached an agreement with the Canadian
Military Colleges Faculty Association and that its members have voted in
favour of this new collective agreement.
    As an integral part of the agreement, the offer represents a total
cumulative economic increase of 6.6% over three years. The breakdown of the
annual economic increases is as follows: 2.3% for the first year, 2.3% for the
second year and 2.0% for the third year of a three-year contract. The offer
also includes measures to address recruitment and retention issues specific to
university teachers.
    This proposal is fair to employees and affordable for Canadians and
reflects our commitment to manage every tax dollar responsibly and
effectively.
    Responsible management of compensation is critical to attracting and
retaining highly qualified employees, supporting Public Service renewal and
achieving results for Canadians.
    I would like to thank the negotiators, who have worked diligently to
reach this agreement."
