OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwired - Sept. 26, 2013) - On September 26, 2013, the Honourable Tony Clement, President of the Treasury Board, made the following statement:

"I am pleased to announce that today, Tim Edwards, President of the Professional Association of Foreign Service Officers (PAFSO), and I have signed a tentative agreement.

"This tentative agreement reflects the Government's commitment to reaching fiscally responsible settlements that are fair to Canadian taxpayers and to employees.
