CPC’S DEMANDS!!!

Group 3 & 4

Sorry this is series of Bulletins is so long, but you need to see all the CPC demands. This info is taken from a Central Region Bulletin. I have split the original list of items into a Number of Bulletins, adding more detail around the concepts and Local impact.

GLT & EL’S

Canada Post wants the work day increased from 7.5 hours to 12 hours per day.

Elimination of overtime after 8 hours per day and 40 hours per week.

Amend schedule to three days of work, four days of rest, four days of work, and three days of rest over 14 days, with increased weekend work.

Canada Post also wants to review of the job descriptions and work rules, implement a system where they would determine the skills required; seniority would no longer be the only criteria in obtaining a position.

The employer wants to eliminate the sections of Article 40 that deal with the apprenticeship program to replace them with clause 27.01 (iii), which, in their opinion, would give them access to an unpaid training program or an allowance that could represent up to 100% of the annual rate of pay as long as the Corporation deems the training program meets the organization’s needs and the employee agrees in writing to return to work for a period that is at least equal to the duration of the leave granted.
