Occupational Group Structure Review

Treasury Board has undertaken a large-scale review of its classification standards and group structures – some of which date back as far as 1965 – in an effort to harmonize the compensation and recognition of work done by members of the Public Service, and to better align working groups by commonalities.  Part of this exercise involves the review and updating of all job descriptions within a current bargaining group.

To assist USJE in our efforts to ensure that your job descriptions are accurate and truly reflective of the important work you do, we will need help from you, our members!

Keep an eye on your emails and this website for updates!
