 CUPW - Why is an RSMC from Maple being given modified duties in Bolton (computer based training). This issue is why offering it for one and not for others. CPC - this has been authorized by Lorraine Sanderson, require clarification.  
WBC Restructure - 03-2011CUPW: One hour was lost off of each route. RSMCs are now being asked to manually track their parcels and time. There should be a system where we do not have to wait for 6 months to be paid. CPC: If there are pay issues, please direct to A. Chakaroun. Employees will be required to document their PCIs and time for the 6 months. CUPW: The restructure is bad. G. Pratt will request time studies from each RSMC. The problem is volume.CUPW
 CUPW - Time Studies are being denied by National, why? No provision for time to wait like Urban CBA - will waive time limits, need to contact the Transition Committee.

 Jim Wineck to follow-up. 
Overburdening of RSMCsOCR not being hired (West Beaver Creek, Ajax, Pickering and Unionville) - long term absences are not being put into the  
 equation -also hiring contractors without proper vehicles or insurance. In Richmondhill concerns of over-burdening due  
 to route optimization. Unionville already building new routes due to 8+ hours per route. Route updates in Unionville not  
 being done at all, not reflecting new information - CUPW has asked for point of call updates, edit books not being done.  
 Extra points of call will not see a payment until October  
 CPC - OCRs back-filling long term absences, only alternative is to hire contractors - will take away. Anything  
 in Unionville with regards to updates involve CUPW. 
Unionville Route1 RSMC doing a route in Unionville (SS 106), won bid for SS 107 but not being allowed 2 days for training. No reporting  
 date as of yet. 
Urban RMOCertain areas of Unionville either RSMC or Urban (iron ring). Birchmount not being put through so now contiguous.  
 Growth to RSMCs or Urban - in the opinion of the RMOs it is Urban.
