Public service bargaining resumes this week

The Liberal government’s first round of collective bargaining with 18 unions representing Canada’s public servants begins this week amid hopes by some for a “quick deal.”

The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers will be the first at the table this week, but the major unions, representing most public servants, won’t be back in negotiations until late January or early February. The giant Public Service Alliance of Canada is scheduled for its first four-day session beginning Feb. 1.

The big question is what the government will propose on sick leave, which has dogged contract talks for nearly two years.
