Union Grievance, Collective Agreement, Compensation, Holiday, Status, Redress, Duration


Union grievance on behalf of the Grievor, alleging breach of the Collective Agreement between the parties bearing the date July 31, 1992, and in particular of Articles 18, 35, 44 and Appendix A, in that he was not paid relief letter carrier rates and compensation for designated paid holidays to which he was entitled. The Employer refused to pay those rates and benefits on the basis that he 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 the Grievor as having that status and grant him full redress in the way of all lost rights, earnings and benefits.
