Although advisory, committees do not have the authority to amend the provisions of collective agreements or regulations that affect the conditions of employment of workers. They do not interfere with management`s authority, administrative obligation or the legal rights of the union, as defined by laws or collective agreements.

The new collective agreements for the PA, TC and EB groups cover the period 2018-2021, while the new PSAC-UTE collective agreement covers the period 2016-2021.
