Union Grievance, Collective Agreement, Part-Time, Boot, Glove, Allowance, Status, Redress


Union grievance on behalf of thirteen part-time members in the bargaining unit, alleging breach of the Collective Agreement between the parties bearing the date July 31, 1992, and in particular of Articles 35, 44 and Appendix A, in that they were not paid boot and glove allowance to which they were entitled. The Employer refused to pay those benefits on the basis that the thirteen part-time employees did not have the status of "term employee, employed for three (3) months or more" under Article 44.04 of the Collective Agreement. The Union requested that the Employer be ordered to treat them as having that status and grant full redress in the way of all lost rights, earnings and benefits.
