Sortation, Buddy's, Saint John, MMC Routes, Error, Corrections


The Union alleges that the Employer has breached the Agreement by failing to assign sortation values for sorting the "buddy's" parcels for all MMC routes in the city of Saint John. The Employer acknowledged that wrong values had been entered, as a result of clerical error, and undertook to make necessary corrections. It also stated that, as agreed upon with the Union, it had made time corrections to some routes to provide for equalization, though this had not been carried out for all routes.

The grievance succeeds in part. The Employer is directed to comply with its understanding with the Union, and make the equalization corrections for all routes. In other respects, the grievance fails.
