The classification system devised by the Public Service Labour Relations Board (PSLRB) is composed of a three-part numerical code, e.g., 566-03-1526 and 466-HC-107.
The first part of the code represents the type of proceeding before the PSLRB, e.g., 566 or 466, which identifies a grievance adjudication case.
The second part of the code identifies the employer. Each employer is assigned a number or letter designation, e.g., 02 for Treasury Board of Canada, or HC for the House of Commons.
The third part of the code is the chronological number assigned to that particular type of proceeding, e.g., 1526 is the 1526th adjudication case under the Public Service Labour Relations Act and 107 is the 107th case under the Parliamentary Employment and Staff Relations Act.
All decisions rendered by the PSLRB are assigned a neutral citation number, e.g., 2005 PSLRB 10.
