Lump Sum Payment for the Program and Administrative Services (PA)and the Education and Library Science (EB) Groups

The purpose of this notice is to advise you of a lump sum amount payable to eligible employees of the Program and Administrative Services (PA) and the Education and Library Science (EB) groups.

As a result of the memorandums of settlement (MOS) signed on November 23, 2008, a lump sum amount of $4,000 is payable to all employees who were members of the PA or EB bargaining units on December 15, 2008. Employees who were acting outside the bargaining unit for a duration of four months or more on December 15, 2008, are not eligible to receive the payment.

| The lump sum amount is payable to all active and temporarily struck off strength (T-SOS) employees who were members of the PA or EB bargaining unit on December 15, 2008. This includes indeterminate employees, seasonal employees and term employees appointed for a period equal to or greater than three months. Eligible part-time employees will receive the full amount of the lump sum payment (not prorated). Excluded employees are also entitled to receive the payment.

The lump sum is not payable to unrepresented employees, term employees of less than three months, casual employees, or employees working for a separate agency.

Payments are due within 150 days of the date of signing of the collective agreements for the PA and EB groups, which were signed on January 29, 2009. Consequently, employees shall receive the lump sum payment by June 28, 2009.

Public Works and Government Services Canada (PWGSC) will automatically process the payments on April 28, 2009. Compensation advisors are responsible to manually process the outstanding payments for eligible employees who are not part of the automated process, including employees of the Canada Border Services Agency (CBSA) under the Program Administration Group (Bargaining Unit Designator (BUD) 308), employees in dual employment/dual remuneration situations, and employees working on an "as required" basis.

The payments will be issued by cheque.

Any request for information regarding the foregoing should be addressed to your compensation advisor.
