When does bargaining begin?

Answer

Once your elected teams are in place, they will meet with the PSAC negotiator prior to the start of negotiations to put the finishing touches to a final bargaining package.

Normally, negotiations start after notice to bargain is served, usually within three to four months of the expiry of the current collective agreement. That means later this fall as the contract expires December 31.
