The Union grieves the Employer's failure to convert Part-Time Route 23 to a full time route, and staff the new route in accordance with the Agreement. The Union seeks an order that the Employer convert the route and grant full redress to all employees affected. The Employer takes the position that it is only required to carry out minor restructuring to bring Route 23 into conformity with limits on part-time routes. The Employer acknowledges that this should have been done seven months ago.
