The new Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board (PSLREB) site replaces the former Public Service Labour Relations Board (PSLRB) and Public Service Staffing Tribunal (PSST) sites.
This guide will help those familiar with the former PSLRB and PSST sites transition to the new PSLREB site and will help those new to this site understand it.
Labour relations and staffing complaints
The PSLREB site focuses on both labour relations issues and staffing complaints, as the former sites did, respectively.
- Labour relations: This was the PSLRB’s area of expertise. Those familiar with the former PSLRB site will find that information in the labour relations section of the PSLREB site. That section deals with administering the collective bargaining and grievance adjudication systems in the federal public service and in the institutions of Parliament. In addition, as prescribed under section 396 of the Budget Implementation Act, 2009, the PSLREB is also responsible for dealing with pay equity complaints filed by or on behalf of groups of employees under the Canadian Human Rights Act.
- Staffing complaints: This was the PSST’s area of expertise. Those familiar with the former PSST site will find that information the staffing complaints section of the PSLREB site. That section deals with appointment and layoff issues.
