Statement

In a letter dated December 31, 2008, the employer informed the Union that it doesn’t intend to reimburse CUPW for all expense claims submitted to Canada Post. The employer is refusing to reimburse the Union for all expenses incurred in relation to the work and activities of the union members of the Transition Committee, in accordance with Article 34 and others of the collective agreement, as well as all related agreements and/or policies. The employer is violating the provisions of the collective agreement and related agreements.

The Union requests a statement to the effect that the employer has violated the provisions of the collective agreement and related agreements and/or policies. The Union further requests that Canada Post be ordered to reimburse the entire amount claimed in relation to the provisions of the collective agreement and related agreements and/or policies, including interest. The Union reserves the right to amend this grievance and/or request any additional corrective action.
