Alternation Process Policy Grievance Update
December 11, 2012
As previously reported, CAPE has referred this matter to adjudication. In early November, the Treasury Board requested that the CAPE, PSAC and PIPSC policy grievances be consolidated and adjudicated together by the Public Service Labour Relations Board (Board).
After careful consideration, CAPE has advised the Board that it wishes to have its case heard separately, as there are several issues that set CAPE’s case apart from those of its sister unions. CAPE will be in attendance at the adjudication hearing of the PSAC and PIPSC cases, which will be held prior to that of CAPE, on January 14, 15, 16 and January 28 and 29, 2013. CAPE will thoroughly analyze the Board’s decision on the PSAC and PIPSC grievances and only proceed with any outstanding issues not covered by the decision.
