SUBJECT: Canadian Association of Professional Employees Deduction Code 632


1.1 The purpose of this directive is to provide compensation advisors with information concerning the exclusive use of Deduction Code (DED) 632 for the Canadian Association of Professional Employees (CAPE) after the merge of DED codes 660 and 632 in the Regional Pay System (RPS).


2.1 The Social Science Employees Association (DED code 660) has merged with the Canadian Union of Professional and Technical Employees (DED code 632) to form the new bargaining agent named the Canadian Association of Professional Employees (DED code 632). This bargaining agent has requested that the two DED codes be merged in the RPS so that code 632 is used exclusively to collect the CAPE union dues.

3. RPS Changes

3.1 Effective April 1, 2006, DED code 632 is to be used to commence union dues for all the bargaining unit designator (BUD) groups under the CAPE.

3.2 A bulk change will be processed in the RPS on March 31, 2006, to transfer all BUD groups under DED code 660 to DED code 632 for the second pay cycle in April 2006.

3.3 Relevant union dues tables and BUD groups will be updated accordingly in the RPS.

3.4 The DED code 660 will be retained as a valid code in the RPS until September 30, 2006, for deduction refund (DER) purposes only.


4.1 Effective April 1, 2006, compensation advisors must use DED code 632 to collect union dues for all BUD groups under the CAPE.

4.2 The DED code 660 is to be used, only until September 30, 2006, for the refund of union dues paid to the former Social Science Employees Association.

4.3 The Personnel-Pay Input Manual (PPIM) will be updated to incorporate the relative information contained in this compensation directive.


5.1 Any inquiries on the information contained in this document should be addressed to your Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) Compensation Services Office.
