Here are some quick updates on current issues:

Arbitrations and Grievances

APSA is currently preparing for three arbitrations, the Colin Taylor Award arbitration and two individual member arbitrations: one on hours of work and another on human rights. We can't disclose any details of these member arbitrations due to confidentiality issues.

For those who aren't aware of the Colin Taylor Award, why we are going to arbitration and why this is a crucial case for our membership, see the AGM report from the Total Compensation Review Committee. You can read the results of the 2014 arbitration and the contents of the award itself.

We are supporting several members with grievances mainly on bullying and harassment and hours of work. We can't give any details due to confidentiality issues. To learn more about how the grievance process works please see this infographic on the Life of a Grievance.


Please see Jo-Anne's update on bargaining. For more information on how bargaining works, see this infographic on Collective Bargaining.


There has been no further information on the pension. APSA is still in favour of the amended changes outlined in 2018 by the EJPC and will continue to advocate towards getting a plan that best serves our entire membership.
