All supervisory staff of the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation or professional employees within the meaning of the Code, and all employees who perform similar or comparable functions, excluding employees covered by other certification orders and employees who are employed in a confidential capacity in matters relating to industrial relations.
More than 700 employees scattered across the country are included in APS, from St. John's to Vancouver, with a large concentration of members in Toronto, Montreal and Ottawa.
A first collective agreement was signed in June 1997; the last one will be effective until June 2013.
