In May 2019, a request for information on Buy-Sell was issued to measure industry interest and the ability to provide routine maintenance and assistance services, followed by an industrial day in June with private sector suppliers. Continued engagement in the industry is essential to ensure fairness and equal opportunities for all interested suppliers, as well as a successful procurement process. In order to maximize market reaction, the department incorporates lessons learned from previous sectoral consultations in this area. The department continues to work closely with the Treasury Board of Canada Secretariat to minimize the impact of future collective agreements on compensation. The department will continue to work closely with the Secretariat of the Labour Council of Canada to ensure the completion of the 2014 cycle and the smooth implementation of the 2018 tariff round. The department closed more than 87,000 accounts for the wage management group as of September 30, 2019. As required and in a meeting with the Board of Directors of the Secretariat of Canada, the Division prepares communications products related to departments related to the implementation of the 2014 and 2018 collective agreements. The department has also assumed responsibility for communication related to the 2018 cycle. I see it too, which is strange, because I received all my retro salary for the new collective agreement, and it seems that everything is being paid properly. I hate the instability of this system.
I`m about to go on vacation, I don`t need more random things to come and threaten my salary Other issues, such as change management or the training needed to implement Next Gen, will probably be informed by the completion of the pilots. When transitioning to a Next-Gen environment, it will be important to build on the lessons learned from Phoenix`s implementation. The move from Phoenix to Next Gen is more than one type of software to replace it with another. To set up Next Gen for success, it will be necessary to study the « pay ecosystem » and the functioning of HR in the context of the federal government. This is one of the key lessons learned from an independent study (2017 Goss Gilroy Report) that reviewed the implementation of the Phoenix project. Concepts to be considered include staff activities, staff management, collective bargaining, financial systems, delegated authorities, pension and social benefits systems, and interaction between them all. Lessons learned from the ongoing implementation of collective bargaining in 2014 recognized the need to reduce the manual work of compensation advisors in order to expedite payments to employees. During subsequent validation, collective agreements processed automatically, which have been marked for subsequent manual processing, are verified.
Work will continue until spring 2020 for the remaining groups. To facilitate the implementation of collective bargaining in 2018, the Department and Secretariat of the Ministry of Finance have launched a new mass automated retroactive process for the implementation of the 2018 collective agreements. This new process has also been supported by other employers and negotiators. It reflects lessons learned from the last round of collective agreements, which include simplifying the current process, reducing mass retro processing time, reducing manual interventions and speeding up payment processing.
