National 47.03 Issues Resolved, Local Consultation and Participation Resumes

This disagreement had curtailed the MSC to MLC Project in the Stations in the Scarborough Local and the Restructure at the YDC Hub concerning the Contracting in of Maritime – Ontario work, to the YDC hub.

The Local expects to be back in consultations on the issues by the end of next week. Arrangements are being made between the Locals, National CUPW and the employer to meet in the near future.

The employer has conceded the need for union involvement it the restructuring of 75 PT MSC’s and 15 FT Relief MSC’s into MLC and additional Relief Positions. The employer will pay the Union to be involved.
