SUBJECT: Pay Supplement - Translation Group


1.1 The purpose of this directive is to outline interim payment procedures for the new pay supplement negotiated in the Translation Group collective agreement.


2.1 Article (7) (C) of the Translation Group collective agreement, signed on November 1, 1991, provides for a supplement of four percent (4% of the employee's pay scale) for an employee classified as TR-2 or TR-3 who is in a position of translator assigned to multilingual service.


3.1 Supply and Services Canada is currently unable to complete the necessary programming to identify and render operational a new entitlement code for the payment of the multilingual service supplement.

3.2 Pending the introduction of this new entitlement code, the following interim payment procedures apply.


4.1 If an employee is uniquely receiving the pay supplement for multilingual service, then the four percent payment must be requested via entitlement code 083 (pay supplement).

4.2 If an employee is currently receiving another pay supplement in accordance with the provisions of article 7 of the collective agreement, then the four percent multilingual service supplement must be integrated with the percentage rate paid under entitlement code 083. Edits have been removed in order to permit an increased percentage rate payment.

4.3 Once programming has been completed, the details of the new entitlement code will be outlined in a further Services Pay Directive.


5.1 Any queries on the foregoing may be addressed by telephone to the Advisory Services Compensation Group, Diane Leduc at 819-956-2065.
