BACKLOG GRIEVANCE PAYMENTS

17.04 – UNMANNED ROUTES

I AM PLEASED TO ADVISE THAT THE SCARBOROUGH LOCAL HAS RESOLVED ALL OUTSTANDING GRIEVANCES DEALING WITH IMPROPER COVERAGE OF UNMANNED ROUTES FROM THE PREVIOUS 2 COLLECTIVE AGREEMENTS.

THE AGREEMENT CALLS FOR $40,000.00 DOLLARS TO BE PAID IN SETTLEMENT OF APPROXIMATELY 400 FILES. THIS EQUATES TO $100.00 PER FILE. 

THE PAYMENT WAS CALCULATED BY TOTALLING THE NUMBER OF GRIEVANCES FILED BY INSTALLATION AND THEN EQUALLY DIVIDING THE MONIES -- $50.00 PAYMENT TO PART TIME AND $100.00 PAYMENT TO FULL TIME, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF WILLOWDALE B AND MALVERN THAT HAD THE HIGHEST NUMBER OF GRIEVANCES IN THE SYSTEM.

FOR EXAMPLE, IF THERE WERE 22 GRIEVANCES FOR A PARTICULAR STATION, THAT STATION THEN SHARED $2200.00. ONCE THE PART TIME WERE EACH PAID $50.00, THE FULL TIME WERE PAID $100.00 IN SENIORITY ORDER OFF THE SENIORITY LIST. THUS, IF THERE WERE ONLY 2 PART TIME IN THE INSTALLATION, EACH WOULD RECEIVE $50.00 AND THE REMAINING $2100.00 WOULD BE PAID TO THE 21 MOST SENIOR FULL TIME MEMBERS. IN MANY CASES, THOSE FULL TIME MEMBERS WHO ARE ENTITLED TO PAYMENT HAVE SINCE RETIRED.

THE 1993 SENIORITY LISTS WERE USED TO IDENTIFY WHO WAS ENTITLED TO BE PAID, GIVEN THAT THE MAJORITY OF GRIEVANCES WERE FILED DURING THIS PERIOD.

THE AMOUNTS SHARED BY STATION ARE AS FOLLOWS:

Ajax                 $2200.00                     Don Mills           $2200.00
Malvern           $7800.00                     Markham            $ 200.00
Pickering         $4100.00                    Richmond Hill     $2100.00
Depot 11         $1600.00                    280 Progress      $2100.00
Scar F             $2900.00                    Thornhill              $ 500.00
Unionville        $2200.00                    Will. B                  $7800.00
Will. D             $2700.00                    Will. Dpt 2           $ 200.00
Will. Dpt 3       $ 500.00                     YDC                    $ 900.00 

THE EMPLOYER ADVISES THAT THEY HAVE ACTIONED THIS PAYMENT. THEREFORE, THOSE THAT ARE ENTITLED SHOULD SEE THE MONIES REFLECTED ON A REGULAR PAYCHEQUE WITHIN THE NEXT 30 DAYS.

I HAVE ATTACHED A LIST OF ALL THOSE MEMBERS ENTITLED TO PAYMENT. IF YOUR NAME IS NOT ON THE LIST, IT’S BECAUSE YOU WERE NOT ONE OF THE SENIOR EMPLOYEES IN THE INSTALLATION WHO WAS ENTITLED TO PAYMENT.

In Solidarity
