Employee grievances alleging that the Employer violated Articles 10 and 20 of the Collective Agreement between the parties relating to the Postal Operations Group (Non-Supervisory): Internal Mail Processing and Complementary Postal Services, Code: 608/81, which expired December 31, 1982 but was extended by Bill C-124 to September 30, 1984, in that the Employer improperly denied sick leave and imposed discipline without just, reasonable and sufficient cause. The Union requested in each case that the reprimand placed on the grievor's personal files be removed and that the employee be allowed to apply sick credits to cover the period of absence in question.
