Collective Agreement, Postal Operations Group, Overtime, Casual Workers, Regular Employees, Compensation, Corrective Action


Union and employee grievances alleging breach of the Collective Agreement between the parties in respect of the Postal Operations Group (Non-Supervisory): Internal Mail Processing and Complementary Postal Services, which expired September 30, 1986 and its predecessor Collective Agreement, in that on December 6, 7 and 8, 1983 the named grievors were restricted to two hours overtime after their shift while casuals worked, and in that between the dates of November 26, 1985 and January 6, 1986 the Employer restricted the amount of overtime hours of regular employees while allowing casual employees to work. In the case of both the individual and the group grievances the Union requests that all those whose overtime was restricted be compensated for the amount of time the Union alleges they should have been allowed to work. The parties agreed that my ruling with respect to the Christmas period, 1985, would govern the remedy in the grievances relating to December 6, 7 and 8, 1983.
