Overtime, Rotation, Flexible, Attendance, Maintenance, Restriction, Posting


Overtime rotation created a flexible work schedule, often resulting in reduced work attendance on Mondays and Tuesdays. To ensure consistent time for preventive maintenance, the Employer posted four positions which would have restricted access to overtime. Such limitations had not previously been imposed. The Union believed the overtime restriction was unreasonable and created two types of employees. The requested remedy is a declaration that the postings were contrary to the Collective Agreement.
