Employees who have successfully completed the Apprenticeship Training Program are to be paid at the maximum MAM-11 Apprentice hourly rate of pay until they obtain a MAM-11 position and are to remain members of Group 3. The Employer has violated the Collective Agreement by unilaterally reclassifying these employees upon their successful completion of the Apprenticeship Program, not paying them at the appropriate wage rates, returning them to the classification they previously held prior to their apprenticeship and wrongfully deleting positions from the bargaining unit.
In doing so Canada Post has violated Articles 13, 40, 53, Appendix “A”, Appendix “T” and all other related Articles as well as the past practice.
Additionally, Canada Post is estopped from taking such actions in light of the prior representations to the affected employees and the Union that employees who successfully complete the Apprenticeship Program would remain members of Group 3.
