Union Grievance, Collective Agreement, Postal Services Continuation Act, Notify, Jurisdiction


Union grievance alleging breach of the Collective Agreement between the parties for the Postal Operations Group (Non- Supervisory): Internal Mail Processing and Complementary Postal Services, which expired September 30, 1986, and remained in force pursuant to the Postal Services Continuation Act, 1987, and in particular of "Article 10 and all related Articles", in that the Employer notified the grievor "that he was discharged from his employment without just, reasonable, and sufficient cause". The Union requests that the grievor be reinstated and reimbursed for all lost rights, benefits and earnings, and that all reports, letters and documents relating to his discharge be removed from his personal file. Counsel for the Employer made a preliminary objection to my juris diction to deal with this grievance and it is that preliminary objection which is the subject of this award.
