It does not go to employees of government corporations such as Air the CBC and Canadian National Railways. Nor will it be paid to public servants whose unions are bargaining now for contracts or. units that were given arbitral awards after April 1 But Treasury Board President C M Drury and union leaders said they expect negotiators and arbitration boards will take into account the pay.
