Employee Grievance, Promotion, Collective Agreement, Time-Limit, Assignment


Employee Grievance alleging improper denial of promotion. Grievance dismissed.

The parties agreed at the outset of the hearing in this matter that I was properly appointed under the collective agreement and that any time-limits were waived. There were no jurisdictional objections. Since the grievor here seeks the assignment to him of a job which he alleges was improperly awarded to another employee it must be noted that that other employee, Rodney MacLean, was advised of these proceedings by the company and chose not to attend or be represented individually.
