Memorandum of Understanding Between the Treasury Board of Canada and the Public Service Alliance of Canada With Respect to a Joint Learning Program

This memorandum is to give effect to the agreement reached between the Employer and the Public Service Alliance of Canada in respect of employees in the Program and Administration Services, Operational Services, Technical Services, Border Services and Education and Library Science bargaining units.

**

The PSAC – TBS Joint Learning Program (JLP) will continue to provide joint training on union management issues.

**

The Employer agrees to provide eight million seven hundred and fifty thousand dollars ($8,750,000) to fund the PSAC – TBS JLP from June 22, 2011 until June 21, 2014. The Employer agrees to provide a further six hundred thousand dollars ($600,000) over the life of the 2011-2014 collective agreement, to be dedicated specifically to promoting the participation of bargaining agents other than the PSAC in the PSAC – TBS JLP.

**

The Employer agrees to provide a further two hundred ninety-two thousand dollars ($292,000) per month to the PSAC – TBS JLP starting on June 22, 2014 until the subsequent collective agreement is signed to ensure continuity of this initiative.

**

The PSAC – TBS JLP will continue to be governed by the existing joint PSAC – TBS Steering Committee. The Bargaining Agent Side Secretary on the National Joint Council will be invited to attend the meetings of the PSAC – JLP Steering Committee with voice but no vote. The PSAC – TBS JLP will undertake a review of its governance structure over life of the collective agreement with the objective of including other bargaining agents more fully in the operation of the JLP.
