October 2, 2013:
After staging the longest strike in public service history, Canada’s diplomats have signed a tentative agreement with the Canadian government, thereby settling their dispute and ending their work-to-rule campaign. The tentative agreement was signed on Thursday, September 24, 2013.
The deal is expected to be ratified shortly. All Points Relocation has learned that Canadian diplomatic posts are expected to resume full operations, however, processing delays will continue as they sift through the backlog that has developed during the strike. All Points is recommending that companies that have either permanent international relocations into Canada, or global assignees coming to Canada, should still expect delays for the foreseeable future and communicate this to recruiters and hiring divisions and managers.
