The parties to this agreement recognize that some NRC institutions and branches need flexibility in scheduling working time in order to provide efficient service to their customers. The purpose of this memorandum is to give effect to the agreement between the employer and the Research Council Workers` Association on the period of implementation of the collective agreement. Although we have made considerable progress, we still have a lot of work to do. For many members, negotiations are ongoing. The Institute will continue to work to improve collective agreements for all our members. It is important that all members stand together in order to support each other. Together, we are strong. 2.3 The English and French texts of this agreement are official. 7.2 The Board shall make available to any staff member who is a member of the bargaining unit at the time of signing this Agreement a copy of this Agreement and a copy of any amendment that amends or amends this Agreement, and in addition, any staff member who joins the Bargaining Unit shall receive a copy of this Agreement. In order to fulfil the employer`s obligation under this clause, workers may have access to this agreement electronically.
20.2 The parties to the agreements of the National Joint Council are the matters that the parties to the agreements of the National Common Council have designated as such or on which the Chairman of the Public Service Labour Relations Committee has taken a decision in accordance with (c) of the Agreement of the Joint National Council which entered into force on 6 December. 1978. Without prejudice to the provisions of the pay slips in Annex 1 relating to the calculation of retroactive payments and Annex G for the period of implementation of the collective agreement, this memorandum shall enter into force the agreement between the employer and the Workers` Association of the Research Council on a modified approach to the calculation and management of retroactive payments for the current round of negotiations. These transitional provisions shall apply to workers who have been on leave or after the date of signature of this Agreement and who have gone on leave. In the case of misinterpretations or misplacings resulting from agreements concluded by the National Joint Council (NJC) of the civil service on matters that may be included in a collective agreement and approved by the parties to that agreement, the appeal procedure shall be in accordance with the statutes of the NJC. 56.2 Under no circumstances may the maximum compensation provided for in this article be of a pyramidal height. For greater certainty, payments referred to in Annexes E 56.9 to 56.12 or similar provisions in other collective agreements are considered severance pay for the management of this clause. This payment is also included in the Staff Adjustment Calculations (CEF) for the maximum total redundancy benefits to which an excess worker is entitled under the EMC Directive.
51.3 If, on the basis of point 51.2, there is no step in the appeal procedure, no other level shall be waived except by mutual agreement. 41.4 A member of the on-call staff called to work and who report to work shall be compensated in accordance with the provisions of this Agreement. Finally, we have ensured an overall increase of 6 per cent for all members over the life of the agreement. We will, of course, continue to urge the Executive Board to make further improvements in the next round of negotiations. The provisions of this Collective Agreement shall be implemented by the Parties within one hundred and twenty (120) days from the date of signature. . . .
