Item #Comments 
Walks with end times changing 03-2014CUPW: Walks are being adjusted with split shifts all the time without the LC or supervisor knowing about it. Some are even 1.5 minutes. This becomes an issue when or if the employee works overtime on his own walk and the supervisor explains to the employee that it is not overtime because there is a split shift on the route. Why can't the employee be notified ahead of time?? April 9-2014: The split shift has to be taken with a lunch. CPC: We are allowed to implement split shifts under the collective agreement. Agree that the employee and supervisor should be notified ahead of time and the reason. Julie will follow up with the RMO's. April 9-2014: We will be sending what has changed to the supt. An activity report is sent to the supervisor as well and it should be provided to the employee. SAP is showing different than what the RMO's are doing. We are doing our best to fix and waiting for SAP ticket to be updated. Nothing in the collective agreement where the split shift can be put. Is it in the LCRMS? Escalated by Jan to Darlene Mulvahill. Will have to get back to them. Mike raised a concern about splits not attached to lunch. Julie to follow up with Dave about taking out splits. Julie will continue to push the issue. Julie P. Sandra D.

Scanning of parcels for delivery 03-2014CUPW: Every employee is being told to scan the parcels everyday. It was only supposed to be a matchup/check count for these items. There is no time value for these scannings. You said it was only a once in a while event if the count did not match up. CPC: Glen Ramlochan will follow up. Rob Lafleur is the contact in Ottawa. Glen says they are discussing nationally with CUPW. Should start seeing a reduction with routes having to rescan. Will pay overtime if necessary for routes having to do so. Don Mills has a load study and will look to see if this is an issue. Will deal with grievances at pre-arb.  
 CPC: will get back to the unionJ. Parent
Article 50's 04-14CUPW: Stations not doing the article 50's. In depot 4, one request has been lost 5 times. We are requesting that Chris be present when it is being done. CPC: Easter will not be a good time for it. There has to be a pre-determination done before the actual article 50 is commenced. Cos will follow up with the stations to determine if the pre-50 work/determination is to be done. Doing pre-article 50's. Once they have the results they will be able to determine which walks are valid for article 50. C. D'angelo

It is part of your process. There is no time value for driving back. CPC: It is only if they are not back by 5pm. It is not a daily occurrence. D.

Lunch LocationsCUPW: Might have been given a location but information has not been entered in SAP and no time value. CPC: Managers will look into own stations. CUPW: there are signs say that carded items must be carded to RPO before 5pm. The issue is that 2nd wave employees dont' get back after 5pm.

Also, employees need Access card to enter facility.All Managers
