Union grievances alleging breaches of the Collective Agreement between the parties for the Postal Operations (Supervisory) Group bearing expiry date December 31, 1986 which was continued in effect and applied on the date of the grievances. The grievances allege that the Employer breached various articles of the Collective Agreement, particularly Side Letter 2, by assigning members of other bargaining units to do work customarily and regularly performed by supervisors represented by A.P.O.C., and article 7.12, by failing to consult first with A.P.O.C. about an operational change which affected the working conditions of A.P.O.C. members. In respect of the first grievance the Union requests financial compensation. In respect of the second the Union requests a declaration.
