Statement

The Corporation is amending or intends to amend the criteria used for determining “business directs” and the monetary or other values that are provided for in the activity component of Appendix ’’A’’ of the collective agreement. In so doing, the Corporation is assigning a value not consistent with the activity component for certain types of business direct deliveries. The employer is making this change to working conditions in violation of the provisions of the collective agreement. 

Corrective Steps Requested

The Union requests a statement to the effect that the employer is violating the Collective Agreement. The Union also requests that the employer be ordered to cease this practice and to reinstate, on all individuals routes, the “business direct” values set out in the Collective Agreement, with all the rights and benefits that this entails. The Union further requests that Canada Post be ordered to pay damages (with interest) for any prejudice that has been or will be suffered by the Union and its members as a result of these violations. The Union reserves the right to request any additional corrective action it deems appropriate and also reserves the right to amend this grievance.
