Employee Grievance, Seniority, Qualifications, Procedure, Collective Agreement
Employee Grievance requesting assignment to vacant job.
This grievance arises because the job of fork-lift truck mechanic was given to Lloyd LaCombe who had less seniority than does the grievor William Reidel. LaCombe was and is classified as a mechanic "B". Reidel is an oiler. John Futter, who had been the fork-lift truck mechanic for 11 years before he quit, was classified as a mechanic "B". The job is a desirable one because it is a steady day job.
