Policy Grievance Update:
“Years of Service” to include all service, whether continuous or discontinuous
November 15, 2012
On November 7, 2012, the Employer issued an addendum to its response issued September 26, 2012.
The addendum reads, in part:“The last paragraphs of the response should have read as follows:After careful review and consideration, the employer agrees with your submission that the interpretation of “years of service” should be broader… within the next 30 days, an information bulletin will be issued advising Departments of the change in the employer’s interpretation of “years of service” in order to include all service, whether continuous or discontinuous service.”
Accordingly, CAPE has requested that the reference to adjudication of this policy grievance be put in abeyance for the time being by the PSLRB. This request has been granted.
As soon as the employer issues the information bulletin, we will review it with a view to determining if we will be pursuing the referral to adjudication, or if we will be withdrawing it.
