Our union did its part to bump up the average...we've been offered 1.25% for each of the four years of the agreement, with a 2% "wage restructure" applied to the top step of all levels in the third year (1 Sep 2016).  I'm not sure how that last part will be quantified into the average they need to calculate for the CF raise purposes.

Any idea how long from this point until these go into effect? Typically?

Generally implementation timelines are part of the negotiations;  for PSAC's PA group, for example, it will be 150 days after ratification.

Our ratification vote isn't until next month, and even then they've told us with Phoenix, not to expect to see the increases and back pay processed until the end of the year.  We're only a small union; I'm not sure how things are going on a broader scale across the Public Service, or if there is enough of a baseline for them to start working on what the CF raise will be.

With the mention of the "P" word, that may mean that ALL PS employees won't see any money in their banks after the new increases are inputted.   >:D

CF are lucky that they do not fall into the Phoenix Pay fiasco yet.   [:D

IRRPS / RPSR afflicted the PRes with  similar issues. So the entire CAF did not escape Phoenix style pay issues.

When IRRPS came out, most people fondly dubbed it the WHOOPS pay system.

From what I've been able to see, its down to those day ruining border agents as the last union to make a deal. Or is there another one I'm missing?

13 April 2017 was the the big ratification for most of the unions. Here http://psacunion.ca/psac-members-ratify-new-agreements-treasury-board


21 April 2017 was the last update for FB(Day Ruiners) Here http://psacunion.ca/fb-bargaining-update-what-comes-next-pic

Would it be hard to attach pay raises to cost of living increases?  Every year our pay would get adjusted accordingly, without having to wait for unions to sort themselves out.

We waste so much time and money on crap like this.

More often than not, the increases that the CF gets as a result of being tied to the average of the PS increases results in a raise better than the rate of inflation.  And the increases are always made retroactively.

Why would you settle for something less?  It's money in the bank.

Or allow us to have our own collective bargaining agent, so we don't have to wait for PSAC to think they can milk a better deal out of a new government. Don't give me the "PSAC is getting a better deal for the CAF as well", because they have 0 thoughts about securing anything for the CAF when they're working on negotiations.

I'd be happy with increases tied to the national cost of living increase (no less than 1% per year), since pressing issues like PLD reform, or tax-free benefits on deployments are furthest from anyone's minds.

You really have a hate-on for the Public Service, based upon your post history.  If the 17 unions (not just PSAC) didn't reject the Conservative government's offers, and waited it out to see what the Liberals could do, you'd be enjoying a pay increase based on 0.5% per year for four years right now.  As it stands, the CF will be getting a raise that's most likely based on slightly better than 1.25% or 1.5% per year over 4 years.  The system worked as it's supposed to.  Your pay raise will be retroactive.  I strongly suspect that nobody in the CF was in danger of losing their home by not getting their pay raise every year, on time.

Your proposal of increases tied to the CPI is interesting, but the limitation of "no less than 1%" is puzzling.  If you want the benefit of keeping up with the rate of inflation when inflation is high, then when inflation slows to a rate less than 1.0%, it should apply as well.  Why would the CF (or anyone else, for that matter) enjoy COLA protection when inflation is high, but still have a guaranteed increase rate during times of low inflation?  You can't have your cake and eat it too.

I heard through the grapevine (I reiterate that this is an "I heard") that it was all sorted out now and that things will be happening WRT this later on in the year. Some are saying by Christmas time, and some are saying as early as the end of the summer.

When it is all sorted out, I am fairly confident that it will be announced, and then the next round of griping that "I didn't get the money within 24 hours", "Basket weaving Techs deserve a higher increase" and "My friends says [insert absurd rumour here]" can being in earnest.

I am finally happy to see that someone recognizes the importance of basket weaving, it is a dying trade you know.

Don't be ridiculous.  The trade is stronger than it has ever been.  Those minor reductions post FRP, post SR and post DRAP, reducing it to a single MCpl (and the trade is now red) are irrelevant to the future of this key enabler.

I would expect an announcement on CAF pay raises to be made within the next 2 weeks.  Just awaiting TB approval.
