Grievance on delayed CCA backpay resolved

The parties have settled a national-level grievance on the delay in retroactive payment to certain CCAs following ratification of the 2016-2019 National Agreement. In accordance with this settlement (M-01895), former CCA employees who converted to career status during the back pay period resulting from ratification of the 2016-2019 National Agreement who did not receive their retroactive pay on Feb. 23, 2018, for their time spent as a CCA, will receive a one-time lump-sum payment. The amount of the payment is determined by the length of time the employee was a CCA during the back pay period. The affected employees will receive the payments as follows: CCAs converted between Nov. 26, 2016, and  Feb. 18, 2017, will receive $50; CCAs converted between Feb, 18, 2017, and May 27, 2017, will receive $100; and CCAs converted between May 27, 2017, and Aug. 7, 2017, will receive $150.
