Statement

Commercial Pickups

In restructuring the routes of motorized letter carriers who perform commercial pickup duties, the Corporation is violating the provisions of the collective agreement.

Specifically, contrary to the provisions of the collective agreement, and more specifically those of Chapters 7 and 16 of the LCRMS and Chapter 5 of the MSCWSS, the Corporation is failing, in the case of certain routes, to combine scheduled commercial pickups and on-demand commercial pickups within a daily delivery window.

Further, contrary to the provisions of the collective agreement, and more specifically those of Chapters 7 and 16 of the LCRMS and Chapter 5 of the MSCWSS, the Corporation is assigning on-demand commercial pickups to certain routes without assigning the scheduled commercial pick-ups to those same routes.

In addition, contrary to the provisions of the collective agreement and, more specifically, to those of Chapters 7 and 16 of the LCRMS and Chapter 5 of the MSCWSS, the Corporation is not evaluating the service time allowance for on-demand commercial pickups using data from a 12-month volume base (excluding July, August and December) obtained from the “PICK” system, but is only using data from the two-week sampling.

Further, contrary to the provisions of the collective agreement and, more specifically, to those of Chapters 7 and 16 of the LCRMS and Chapter 5 of the MSCWSS, the Corporation, in the case of some routes, is determining time values for on-demand commercial pickups based on pickup time data for the entire installation, rather than data from the route.

Finally, contrary to the provisions of the collective agreement and, more specifically, to those of Chapters 7 and 16 of the LCRMS and Chapter 5 of the MSCWSS, the Corporation, in the case of certain routes, is not allocating unscheduled working time.

Corrective Steps Requested

Order the Corporation to combine all scheduled commercial pickups and on-demand commercial pickups into a daily delivery window for all letter carriers routes with commercial pickup duties, in accordance with the collective agreement and, more specifically, Chapters 7 and 16 of the LCRMS and Chapter 5 of the MSCWSS;

Order the Corporation, in the case of letter carrier routes with commercial pick-up duties, to only assign on-demand commercial pickups to these routes when that same route also has scheduled commercial pickups, in accordance with the collective agreement and, more specifically, Chapters 7 and 16 of the LCRMS and Chapter 5 of the MSCWSS;

Order the Corporation, in the case of all letter carrier routes with commercial pickup duties, to evaluate the drive time allowance for on-demand commercial pickups using data from a 12‑month volume base (excluding July, August and December) obtained from the “PICK” system, in accordance with the collective agreement and, more specifically, Chapters 7 and 16 of the LCRMS and Chapter 5 of the MSCWSS;

Order the Corporation, in the case of all letter carrier routes with commercial pickup duties, to allocate time values that are determined using the route’s pickup time data, in accordance with the collective agreement and, more specifically, Chapters 7 and 16 of the LCRMS and Chapter 5 of the MSCWSS;

Order the Corporation to allocate unscheduled working time to all letter carrier routes with commercial pickup duties in accordance with the collective agreement and, more specifically, Chapters 7 and 16 of the LCRMS and Chapter 5 of the MSCWSS;

The Union reserves the right to amend the grievance and request additional or supplementary corrective action.
