New Collective Agreement Ratified by Treasury Board

Dear AJC Members, 


We are pleased to announce that Treasury Board ratified the tentative agreement on May 2nd, 2024, and the New Collective Agreement has been signed effective May 3rd, 2024.  This marks a significant milestone in our ongoing efforts to secure fair compensation and equitable terms and conditions of employment for all AJC members. 

The tentative agreement was reached on February 9th and ratified by AJC members on March 1st, 2024.  With the signing of the New Collective Agreement, the timelines on implementation begin today, May 3rd, 2024, as governed by the Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) between the AJC and the Employer, outlined on pages 13-14 of the tentative agreement document.  

We understand that clarity and transparency regarding the implementation process are crucial for all members and, therefore, wish to provide you with the following timelines:  


  • 180 days after the signing of the collective agreement (i.e., effective May 3rd, 2024) compensation increases (e.g., salary changes and other compensation elements) where there is no need for manual processing; 
  • 180 days after the signing of the collective agreement (May 3rd, 2024) retroactive amounts payable to LPs where there is no need for manual processing. 
  • 460 days after the signing of the collective agreement (May 3rd, 2024) compensation increases and retroactive amounts that require manual processing. 

That being said, our understanding is that other collective agreements which were reached in 2023 (e.g., PSAC) were implemented in approximately three months.   

Your patience and understanding during this period are greatly appreciated. We remain committed to keeping you informed and engaged throughout the implementation process. Should you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
