21.04. Without prejudice to the position that the employer or the Alliance wishes to adopt in the future, if it is desirable that the matters be dealt with by the provisions of the collective agreements, the matters which may be determined as appropriate for joint consultation shall be determined by mutual agreement between the parties. 32.04 If an employee is required to travel outside its head office for government business, as these terms are defined by the employer, the time of departure and the mode of such travel shall be determined by the employer and the employee shall be compensated for travel time in accordance with clauses 32.05 and 32.06. The duration of the journey includes the time necessarily spent at each intermediate station of the route, provided that this intermediate station does not last more than three (3) hours. Notwithstanding the provisions of section 63.03 on the calculation of retroactive payments and section 65.02 over the period of implementation of the collective agreement, this memorandum is intended to bring into force the agreement between the employer and the Public Service Alliance of Canada on a modified approach to the calculation and management of retroactive payments for the current round of bargaining. 18.03 The time limits provided for in this section may be extended by mutual agreement between the employer and the employee and, where applicable, the representative of the Alliance. The purpose of this memorandum is to give effect to the agreement reached by the CRA and PSAC during negotiations on the renewal of the Agreement on the Program Management and Administrative Services Bargaining Unit. 1.1.20 For the purposes of the Travel Policy, dismissed individuals who attend interviews in the event of a potential appointment to the CRA are considered “other persons travelling for government business.” 19.03 By mutual agreement, the parties may consult a mediator to resolve a complaint of discrimination. The choice of mediator is made by mutual agreement.
Effective November 1, 2007, employees will be compensated in accordance with the corresponding salary structure set out in Appendix A of the PSAC/CRA Collective Agreement on October 31, 2007 until the employee is converted to the new ACS-SP classification standard. 33.08 An employee may not earn or receive vacation credits under this Agreement during a month or fiscal year for which the employee has been credited or granted leave under any other collective agreement to which the employer is a party or under any other rule or regulation of the employer. For ASD initiatives, a joint FTA-EBA committee will be established, which will be equally represented by the CRA and PSAC components. By mutual agreement, the Committee may include other participants. The Joint FTA-ASD Committee will establish the rules of conduct of the Committee. The provisions of the collective agreement relating to severance pay complement the ESM. 18.16 If it turns out that the nature of the complaint is such that a decision cannot be made below a certain level of authority, some or all levels, with the exception of the final level, may be eliminated by agreement of the employer and employee and, where appropriate, the Alliance. The employer will pay each employee in the bargaining unit a one-time lump sum payment of $400 on the day this collective agreement is signed. This Annex to the Collective Agreement applies to all members represented by the Public Service Alliance of Canada (PSAC) for which the CRA is the employer […].
