Statement

On April 14, 2010, the employer advised the Union of its intention to change the requirements for the types of vehicle to be used on Rural and Suburban Letter Carrier (RSMC) routes as of May 17,2010. Despite the union-management consultation meetings that have been held, the employer is maintaining its new requirements for RSMCs. The Corporation's requirements are a violation of the provisions of the collective agreement, including, but not limited to, clause 32.01.

Corrective Steps Requested

The Union requests a statement to the effect that employer is violating the collective agreement, as well as an order requiring the Corporation to rescind its decision, and an order requiring the employer to pay damages and interests to the employees affected by the Corporation's directive. The Union reserves the right to seek any other additional corrective action.
