Statement

On April 21, 2010, the employer issued a policy/directive on the validation period for Canada Post Corporation vehicle operator permits (VOPs). The effect of the employer’s policy/directive is to amend the collective agreement in its application. The employer is thus violating the provisions of the collective agreement.

Corrective Steps Requested

The Union requests a statement to the effect the employer’s policy/directive effectively contravenes the provisions of the collective agreement and causes prejudice to employees. The Union reserves the right to amend this grievance.
