As requested at our Annual Meeting The local would meet with the employer to entertain 2 ideas to assist to fill trucks. Both I and Annie MacPhee met with the employer on 2 occasions to discuss the following ideas:
To pay casual members premium pay ( 1 1/2 ) per hour when they work on a Statutory holiday.
Pay double time for full time members after the employer exhausts all efforts to fill a shift as per the collective agreement. ” until the pandemic is over”
Unfortunately, the employer is not willing to entertain these ideas at this time.
If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to myself or your Area Rep. Have a great weekend!
