breach, Missorts, Forms, Letter Carriers, Saint John, Passage, Redirect


The Union alleges a breach in the system the Employer has used to deal with bundles of "missorts" and specifically, in that the Employer provided inaccurate 050 forms for letter carrier and motorized mail carrier routes in Saint John. The Employer states that the passage used by the Union to support its allegation applies only to redirected mail, not to missorts.

The grievance fails. The Arbitrator is satisfied that the missorts were not incorrectly dealt with. The provision upon which the Union's argument depends does not apply to Saint John's unit.
