The Union grieves on behalf of all affected employees that the employer has violated Articles 2, 3, 6, 7 and 8, the Canada Labour Code and all other provisions of the Collective Agreement. In a September letter to employees on Unaddressed Admail, Canada Post exceeded their rights and failed in their obligation to recognize the Union as the sole and exclusive bargaining agent for all employees covered under the bargaining certificate issued to the Union by the Canada Industrial Relations Board.
Corrective Steps Requested
The Union also requests an order directing the employer to recognize in writing that violations of the Collective Agreement and the Canada Labour Code occurred with respect to these matters, and take immediate and affirmative action to cease these violations without delay. Further, the Union requests an order directing the Corporation to issue memos in all information books and/or bulletin board in all its postal installations acknowledging that bypassing the Union and having direct communications with employees concerning working conditions covered under the Collective Agreement violates the Collective and Agreement and the Canada Labour Code. The Union reserves the right to seek additional redress, including but not limited to damages and interest at the Bank of Canada rates.
