Successful Mediation – Work of the Bargaining Unit


Your grievance committee is pleased to announce that the Union has been successful at mediation regarding a grievance for work of the bargaining unit performed by a person as a student that did not meet the definition of a student.  Your Collective Agreement sets out that persons whose jobs are not in the bargaining unit shall not work on any jobs, which are included in the bargaining unit except in emergencies affecting life and property or in cases mutually agreed upon in writing by the Union Executive and the Corporation.  This is a fundamental component of the Collective Agreement (Article 2), and defines who can do what jobs, and under what circumstances.  Please take the time to review your Collective Agreement, and as always, contact a member of the executive or your steward should you have any questions or concerns.
