We have now completed the testimony of 2 of the corporation’s witnesses; Rob Sinclair, Director of Labour Relations and Susan Whitely, Director Delivery Strategy (formerly the Director of National RSMC Operations), in front of Arbitrator Flynn in the Pay Equity Arbitration:
POSITION OF THE CORPORATION
The Only Expectations They Have During Your Work Day:
- RSMCs cannot start their day prior to mail available time (Schedule A-1);
- RSMCs cannot clear mail from a street letter box before the posted clearance time (any time after is fine);
- RSMCs must have mail back prior to when the mail truck leaves.
The union was very surprised to hear the representatives of Canada Post taking these positions. It is the total opposite of the documents, training manuals, policies and direction from management on the workfloor.
We did not let their position go unchallenged. We will keep you posted. Our next hearing days are: April 18, 19 and 20th. The final arguments are on May 2nd.
