On Thursday, April 9, 2009, the Union learned through its members that the employer had given employees of the rural and suburban mail carriers (RSMC) unit a $50 gift card. The employer did this in such a way as to avoid consulting the Union. As a result, Canada Post has violated the RSMC collective agreement, and, specifically but not exclusively, Articles 3 and 7 of the RSMC collective agreement
Corrective Steps Requested
The Union requests a statement to the effect that the employer has violated the provisions of the collective agreement. The Union also reserves the right to request any other additional corrective action.
