"During this round of collective bargaining, which began in 2011, we have reached 27 agreements with 17 different bargaining agents in the core public administration through balanced and consistent negotiations," said Minister Clement.

The Border Services Group includes over 8,700 employees who are primarily involved in the planning, development, delivery, and management of the inspection and control of people and goods entering Canada.
