Signing of Collective Agreement for Regular Members and Reservists

Commissioner’s Broadcast

Signing of First Ever Collective Agreement for Regular Members and Reservists

The National Police Federation (NPF) and the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat (TBS) signed the first ever collective agreement for non-commissioned regular members and reservists. After several months of negotiations, the six-year agreement was ratified by members and applies from April 1, 2017 to March 31, 2023.

The new collective agreement provides RCMP members with fair compensation and a clear and more defined workplace moving forward. The signing of this agreement means that new terms and conditions of employment are in effect for regular members and reservists.

There will be an implementation period to adjust rates of pay, process any retroactive pay owing, and provide the necessary information to the Government of Canada Pension Centre to adjust pension benefits, as applicable. The implementation timelines for the new rates of pay and retroactive payments are included in the collective agreement. Know that National Pay Operations will be working diligently to meet the implementation timelines. To help them in their effort, please only contact National Pay Operations on these matters if there is an urgent financial situation.

Members are encouraged to direct general questions about the new contract to their bargaining agent directly.

On a related note, I would also like to acknowledge that, with an agreement in place for regular members and reservists, commissioned officers may have questions about their own prospective terms and conditions of employment, including pay. I would like to assure you that the RCMP is committed to continuing to work closely with TBS to address the needs of commissioned officers and we will keep you apprised of any developments.

In closing, we appreciate the commitment, efforts and patience of all members during this round of bargaining and we look forward to continuing to work in collaboration with the NPF to ensure members have the supports in place to do their best work and keep Canadians safe.
