Statement

The employer is no longer providing the Union with the useful and essential information the members of the Transition Committee need to identify and represent route holders and relief employees. The employer is violating the provisions of the collective agreement, including, but not limited to Articles 11 and 34, and, consequently, is causing harm to the affected employees and the Union and acting in bad faith.

Corrective Steps Requested

The Union requests a statement to the effect the employer is violating the provisions of the collective agreement. The Union also requests an order requiring the Corporation to provide the union members of the Transition Committee with all the information they require. Furthermore, the Union requests an order requiring the Corporation to compensate, with interest, the employees who are now or will be affected by the Corporation's decision to no longer provide information to the union members of the Transition Committee. Furthermore, the Union requests compensatory and punitive damages for having acted in bad faith towards the Union and its members. Finally, the Union reserves the right to request any other additional corrective action.
