Brothers and Sisters:
As was discussed at our AGM, PIPSC has applied to the Ontario Labour
Relations Board to exclude from the Union the Section Heads and the
NCR Office Regional Representative. CEP 3011 objected to the
On Friday April 12, we met with the Employer to attempt to mediate the
dispute with the help of a mediation officer from the Labour Board.
The result of the mediation was an agreement to deal with the issue
through the current round of collective bargaining. The agreement sets
up a bargaining sub-committee to look at the exclusion issue and
related matters. If the Union and the Employer are unable to reach an
agreement, the issue will return to the Labour Board and a hearing
will decide if the positions are excluded or remain in the Union.
If you have any questions, please contact me or our Chief Steward, Nick Pernal.
President, CEP 3011
