The National Research Council of Canada (NRC) and the Association of Research Council Employees (RCEA) agree that agreements will be made available to the RCEA Computer Systems Group (CS) between the Treasury Board and the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (PIPSC) and the Public Utilities Council and the Public Services Alliance of Canada (PSAC), to negotiate the inclusion of an EEIG agreement in the collective agreement. In the event that there are differences in the agreements between the Board of Directors and the CSPIP and the agreement between the Board of Directors and the PSAC, nrc and RCEA will negotiate the specific agreement (either the PIPSC agreement or the PSAC) that will be made available to members for ratification and inclusion in the collective agreement. Without prejudice to the provisions of the pay slips in Annex 1 relating to the calculation of retroactive payments and Annex G for the period of implementation of the collective agreement, this memorandum shall enter into force the agreement between the employer and the Workers` Association of the Research Council on a modified approach to the calculation and management of retroactive payments for the current round of negotiations. For greater certainty, severance pay for the abolition of the voluntary separation indemnity (resignation and retirement) is considered a severance pay for the application of this clause, in accordance with the provisions of 19.05 to 19.08, under Annex “J” or similar provisions in other collective agreements. Both parties are committed to and support gender neutrality and inclusion. To this end, the Parties undertake to review the Collective Agreement during the term of this Agreement in order to identify ways to make the language more respectful of equality between women and men. The parties agree that changes to the language do not result in a change in application, scope or value. 51.3 If, on the basis of point 51.2, there is no step in the appeal procedure, no other level shall be waived except by mutual agreement. 14.08 A worker may not earn or obtain leave credits under this agreement in a month or fiscal year for which the worker is already on leave under another collective agreement with which the employer is associated or under other rules or rules of the employer. 34.03 The time limits set out in these proceedings may be extended by mutual agreement between the employer and the worker and, where appropriate, the representative of the Institute. 47.04 All elements mentioned in the Table of Contents are part of the collective agreement. 5.1 The Parties to this Agreement recognize the mutual benefits arising from joint consultation and are ready to enter into discussions on matters of common interest; such deliberations shall be without prejudice to the position which the Council or the association wishes to adopt in the future, whether it is desirable that the matters be dealt with by the provisions of collective agreements. (b) Such information shall be communicated to workers by communications published by the employer in places where such communications are most likely to be brought to the attention of workers subject to the appeal procedure, or in another manner agreed between the employer and the institute.
