Website in transition!

On November 1, 2014, the Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board (PSLREB) was created. The PSLREB was created when the Public Service Labour Relations Board (PSLRB) and the Public Service Staffing Tribunal (PSST) merged. This PSLRB website is in the process of being phased out in favour of the new PSLREB website. During a period of transition, this PSLRB website will continue to provide archived reports, decisions, and transitional information. Please visit the new PSLREB website for the most recent content.


We offer a variety of resources in different formats to explain our work to federal public service employers, bargaining agents, employees and the general public. This ranges from basic information for those wishing an overview of what we do, for example, to more detailed guidance for those seeking to represent themselves before the Public Service Labour Relations Board (PSLRB).

Fact sheets furnish general information about the PSLRB and the types of services it provides.

Practice notes offer more detailed instructions for filing grievances, complaints and other applications and are designed to give bargaining agents and employers and their legal counsel a better understanding of the PSLRB's processes.

Representing yourself If you are an individual not represented by a bargaining agent, the attached guides will give you and your legal counsel a more comprehensive explanation of the processes involved in filing a grievance or complaint with the PSLRB and of how we can help.

The Jacob Finkelman Library specializes in Canadian labour law and labour relations. It houses paper copies of all decisions of the Public Service Labour Relations Board and of the former Public Service Staff Relations Board. Electronic versions of decisions from 2000 to the present are available on this website or from the library.

The Labour Relations Glossary is a compendium of words, expressions and terminology in both official languages that are commonly used in public service labour relations.

Videos that explain the processes of adjudicating and mediating grievances, including their transcripts, can be ordered free of charge and are available in DVD format.
