If the RSMC Tentative Agreement is ratified, as of May 1, 2013, route holders who are scheduled minimum of twelve (12) hours per week and all permanent relief employees* will be entitled to a corporate uniform.

An employee required to wear a uniform will be provided credits, in the form of points. These points will be used to obtain the pieces needed to meet the uniform requirements.

Employees will be permitted to carry over a maximum of 332 each entitlement year.  Unused points in excess of the maximum carry over will be forfeited as of December 31th of the entitlement year.

As of May 1, 2013 employees who do not qualify for a uniform will be required to wear a corporate supplied vest.

All employees will still be given an annual boot allowance based on their daily scheduled hours.
