PARCEL MODEL PROJECT

YDC RESTRUCTURE IMPLEMENTATION DELAYED UNTIL OCTOBER 4, 2004

The Local and the National Union and the Employer have been consulting every day this week and more consultations are scheduled on Friday September 10 and Monday September 13 and Tuesday September 14.  

As a result of issues raised concerning Group 1 and Group 2 employees, the implementation has been delayed from September 27, 2004 to October 4, 2004. There are considerable problems with the CPC proposals and their actions to date.

There are problems with bypasses for positions, transfers and promotions involving all employees. There are problems with the high number of PT employees in Group 1 and Group 2, which the Union believes should be FT. There are problems with the hours of work and the relief. There are problems with the bidding process for Group 1 and that lack of accurate CPC information supplied to Group 2 in all 17 Locations involved in the bid. There are problems with the Relief complements.

A bulletin will be issued on updates to the situation following consultations next week.
