PARCEL MODEL BIDDING

FT & PT MSC’S IN ALL LOCATIONS, BIDDING, TRANSFERS

There have been reports that CPC managerial staffs in Stations and the YDC have been advising employees on the conversion of MSC’s to MLC’s and bidding on the new Parcel Model.

Not surprisingly, you should ignore the advice of the YDC or C&D managerial staff, as they are not included in the on going consultations, and their opinion is based on rumours.  At this time there is no agreement on the deletion of FT or PT MSC’s in the Stations, Creation of new MLC’s in the Stations, or on the deletion of PT MSC’s and increase in the FT MSC’s at the YDC Parcel Hub.

Until the parties resolve their differences, and agree on the implementation of the changes, the bidding process can’t be determined at this time. The employer has presented some implementation dates but has not finalized their plans as of yet.

At this time, no one should assume that they will a get a priority for the FT MSC’s positions at the YDC or the FT MLC position’s in the stations. You should continue to transfer and bid as you would normally do right now.

These new positions and changes will fall under the new article 13, 46, and 47.

Once more information is available, we will provide you the information.
