SCRD`s claim that the jobs are the same should have been part of a new negotiation, Coleman said. “If Shay`s job does require a work plan that includes day, evening, and weekend shifts as a regular course,” including his employment in a #10 registration letter, in addition to the position Clark currently holds, this must be done by mutual agreement. There was no such agreement. A Letter of Agreement (LOU) appended to the collective agreement between the Sunshine Coast Regional District (SCRD) of Sechelt, B.C., and Unifor, Local 466, set out the working conditions for the position of coordinator. “I understand that it seems that this is a technical and well-established conclusion. But deciding otherwise would effectively allow only one part of the collective agreement to unilaterally vary the letter of understanding to now refer to two classifications: the sustainability and education coordinator and the water and energy project coordinator. “So far, despite numerous bargaining meetings over the past two months, the SCRD has made little movement to address the union`s concerns,” Rush said in a press release after the vote. Unifor Local has had their word, and this mandate should send a strong message to THE DSC to seriously negotiate the negotiation of a fair collective agreement. But in May, the union discovered that Shay had to attend evening meetings after 5 p.m. And he didn`t receive a bonus. We hope to be able to allay their fears and reach a fair, reasonable and mutually beneficial agreement as soon as possible. » ILWU 522 vs SGS Prince Rupert (provisional agreement, Nov.

Pratt said SCRD was “looking forward to meeting with the union and hearing from them around the table about its bargaining priorities” and “engaging in meaningful dialogue.” The worker, Raph Shay, was hired in June 2015 as coordinator for sustainability and education to cover the incumbent worker in that position, Julie Clark, who was on vacation. . . .
