Statement

The Union grieves that, even though the employer has signed national agreements regarding the hiring of three hundred (300) employees to relieve route holders on leave, it has yet to make every effort to abide by the collective agreement and related agreements. Canada Post is violating the collective agreement and the relevant agreements.

Corrective Steps Requested

The Union requests a statement to the effect that the Corporation has violated the collective agreement and related national agreements. The Union also requests an order to the effect that Canada Post must hire the overall number of relief employees agreed to under the national agreements. In addition, the Union requests that all route holders who don’t have access to relief employees be compensated. It further requests that all information concerning disciplinary sanctions of any type be removed from the employee’s personal file and that they be compensated. Any such compensation must carry interest at the appropriate rate. Finally, the Union reserves the right to seek any additional redress.
