(a) The Commission and a workers` organisation, certified as the exclusive representative of a bargaining unit, carry out a collective agreement covering all issues of the agreement on wages, working time and other conditions of employment. Some collective agreements provide for lump sum payments to workers instead of retroactive wage increases or as compensatory supplements. Unless otherwise made by the CFO, these lump sum payments must also be made to workers excluded from the collective agreement as exclusions from business or confidentiality, although they are classified as a category or professional level under the collective agreement. Pay rates will change within one hundred and eighty (180) after the signing of the Collective Financial Management Agreement (FI). Under Schedule “E” of the FI collective agreement, rates are paid in the form of lump sum payments before the change in salary: (f) A collective agreement enters into force with the agreement of the Commission and the union representing the collective agreement unit. Please respect the AV collective agreement for pay rates. You can also contact James Abrams at 410-455-1638 for collective bargaining issues. c) The collective agreement may include an agency office or other union security device.

The parties often view the outcome of negotiations as a collective agreement or a declaration of intent.
