34.16 If it turns out that the nature of the complaint is such that a decision cannot be taken below a certain level of authority, some or all levels, with the exception of the definitive level, may be eliminated with the agreement of the employer and the worker and, where appropriate, the Institute. Subsection 15.07(d) applies to employees classified as AU and MG-AFS (UA) (as described in Appendix E) who have a separate vacation bank under the collective agreement signed on July 10, 2012. 4. A worker may not make an individual complaint concerning the interpretation or application of a provision of a collective agreement or an arbitration award in respect of the worker, unless the worker has the agreement of the Institute and is represented by it. 42.03 By mutual agreement, the parties may use a mediator to resolve a complaint of discrimination.

This Annex to the Final, Financial and Scientific Examination Collective Agreement applies to members of the UA, CO, AC, EN, CH, PS, SE, FI, ES, SI, LS, ED, MG, PC and CS professions represented by the Professional Institute of the Public Service of Canada (Institute) and for whom the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) is the employer. Unless otherwise stated, the provisions of Parts I to VI shall not apply to other delivery initiatives. The provisions preceded by two asterisks have been amended from the previous collective agreement. 7.9.1 Notwithstanding the leave provisions of the worker`s collective agreement, a worker who accepts an offer of employment under that Part may choose not to be paid for leave credits earned but not used, provided that the new employer accepts such credits.
1.1.31 Severance pay and other benefits under other clauses of the collective agreement are separated from and added to the provisions of this Annex. A worker may be granted paid training leave without pay for different periods of up to one (1) year renewable by mutual agreement, in order to go to an approved institution for further or special studies in a field of education where specific preparation is required to fulfil his current role more appropriately or to carry out studies in a given field, to provide a service that the employer needs or intends to provide. (b) after the submission of a complaint and within the time limits of the delegated level of the complaint provided for in this Article, the intention to have recourse to alternative dispute resolution mechanisms may be extended by mutual agreement between the employer and the employee and, where appropriate, the representative of the Institute. The purpose of this Memorandum of Understanding is to confirm an agreement between the Employer and the Institute on the further application of the alternative leave transfer provision in paragraph 15.07(d) for workers classified in grade UA and converted to group MG, as well as the reimbursement of recognized annual professional affiliation contributions for members of the AFS bargaining unit converted into group MG. (b) Such information shall be communicated to workers by communications published by the employer in places where such communications are most likely to be brought to the attention of workers subject to the appeal procedure, or in another manner agreed between the employer and the institute. . . .
