112 A separate agency may enter into a collective agreement with the negotiator, with the agreement of the Governor, on a bargaining unit composed of workers from the separate agency. This Annex shall be considered as part of the collective agreement between the parties and the workers. 1.1.32 Severance pay and other benefits under other clauses of collective agreements are separated from and added to the provisions of this Annex. PSAC has filed several complaints with the Federal Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board on behalf of each of its relevant bargaining units, where the government has not been able to meet the reasonable 150-day time limit. Early last year, the board of directors said the federal government had broken the law. The Directive on the Management of Communications provides that spokespersons and experts may speak publicly about their area of expertise and research, while respecting the values and ethics code for the public sector. Along with other Deputy Directors, the CFIA President was invited to pay ongoing attention to the implementation of policy requirements within the CFIA, which allow government scientists to speak publicly about their work. As part of the implementation, the President of CFIA should communicate directly with Agency staff to ensure that they are attentive to them through the communication policy and its application. 114 Subject to and for the purposes of this Part and division 1 of Part 2.1, a collective agreement is binding on the employer, the negotiator and any worker in the bargaining unit from the day on which it comes into force. Insofar as the collective agreement governs the matters referred to in Article 12 of the Tax Administration Act, the collective agreement is also binding on any deputy director responsible for a part of the federal public administration who employs employees in the bargaining unit.

The severance pay provisions of the collective agreements apply in addition to the MST. 5.1.1 Surplus employees and dismissed persons who have been appointed to a subordinate position in accordance with this Annex shall, where appropriate, have their wage and wage compensation protected in accordance with the provisions of the collective agreement on the protection of wages or, in the absence of such provisions, the corresponding provisions of the Agency`s directive as regards remuneration in the event of relocation or conversion.
