Work Force Adjustment ”WFA” Committees’ Status

Citizenship and Immigration Canada “CIC”
Management and the unions have met three times. The Terms of Reference (ToR) of the National Labour-Management Committee on WFA have been established and monthly meetings are to be held. The CEIU representatives on this committee are Don Rogers, National President of CEIU, Paul Croes, National Vice-President for CIC, and Luc Pomerleau, National Resources Officer. A third meeting was held on March 20. The Employer presented us with various supporting documents to help everybody understand the WFA.  These Fact Sheets  and an Introduction to the WFA will be posted on their intranet.

Human Resources and Skills Development Canada “HRSDC”
Management met on the week of February 13 to discuss the creation of a WFA Union-Management Committee. HRSDC invited the Unions to a first meeting to establish the ToR, but it was delayed for some reasons we are not aware of.  This first meeting was held on March 14. The CEIU Representatives on that committee are: Don Rogers, National President of CEIU, Steve McCuaig National Executive Vice-President, and Luc Pomerleau, National Resources Officer. At the National Union-Management meeting on March 6, Management mentioned also that they will establish WFA regional committees in the West, Ontario, Québec and Atlantic. The NVPs in these regions will be key players on these committees. The National Capital Region “NCR” would be included in the National Committee. For that reason Jacques Perrin, National Vice-President in the NCR, would be part of the National Committee. The Unions agreed to work together to provide the employer with their comments.

Immigration and Refugee Board “IRB”
IRB invited the Unions to a first meeting to establish the ToR. This meeting was held on March 20.  The CEIU Representatives on that committee are: Steve McCuaig National Executive Vice-President, Norm Murray National Vice-President for IRB and Luc Pomerleau, National Resources Officer. Same as with HRSDC, the Unions agreed to work together to provide the employer with their comments.
