Union representing Canadian Border Agents say talks have broken down

The union that represents eight-thousand Canadian Border Services Agency workers -- including border crossings across the province -- says talks with the Treasury Board have broken down.

The Public Service Alliance of Canada says it spent three days in mediation with the Treasury Board last week and made no progress.

Border guards want wage parity and retirement benefits consistent with the R-C-M-P and other law-enforcement agencies.

The union says talks are at an impasse and the next step will be to file for a Public Interest Commission.
