CEO Update - February 2018

Registration Now Open for Upcoming Bargaining, Data Collection and Education Regional Sessions

With the focus in 2018 being on collective bargaining, we are now taking online registrations for our bargaining, data collection and education regional sessions. Please note that a few dates and locations have changed since we first announced the sessions in January. Attendance at the bargaining consultation sessions is restricted to excluded/management staff. To register for the location closest to you and to view the most up-to-date schedules, please check our registration webpage.

Upcoming Transportation and Meal Allowance Increases

Employers are reminded that as of April 1, a number of increases are set to come into effect. Per Article 26.9 of the collective agreements, the transportation allowance will increase to $0.48/km for CLS and GS members and $0.52 for AS members. Meal allowances will also increase per Article 26.10 for employees conducting business away from their worksites. Eligible employees will be entitled to reimbursement for meal expenses incurred to a maximum of: $10.56 for breakfast; $12.94 for lunch; and $22.44 for dinner. Complete details can be found in members’ respective Collective Agreements.

2018 Compensation and Employee Turnover Survey

The 2018 Compensation and Employee Turnover Survey is now available for completion. Your participation is crucial, as the data gathered will be used to report the sector’s total compensation cost to PSEC and assist in drafting the 2019 bargaining mandate. The survey can be accessed on CSSEA’s website and is due on May 31.

Upcoming Reports

Members will soon be receiving a copy of the 2017 Executive Director/CEO Salary Report through the mail. In the coming weeks, the 2017 Employee Turnover Report will also be released electronically. I would like to take this opportunity to thank members for completing our surveys, as they provide the data that allows us to make these reports possible.

Executive Coaching Program

In 2017, CSSEA completed a three-year initiative with International Coaching Federation’s (ICF) Vancouver chapter, which offered members cost-effective executive coaching and enrolled 86 excluded staff.

While this initiative has come to an end, members can still take advantage of the ICF program, which offers up to eight hours of executive coaching over six months for a fee of $300. Those who are interested can contact ICF directly at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or 778.994.2073.
