Committees

ORGANIZATIONAL & TECHNOLOGICAL CHANGE

What We Do

Although the Executive Board or the Council of Unit Co-ordinators may also refer other matters to this committee, their primary responsibility is ARTICLE 6 of the Collective Agreement.

Organizational and Technological Change as per Article 6.01 of our Collective Agreement means the introduction of equipment, material, work functions, processes, methods, organization or geographic location, significantly different from that currently practiced.

This committee plays an important role in bargaining. Four months before bargaining is due to start, the Co-ordinator will submit a report on any bargaining changes necessary to ARTICLE 6.

The committee provides a liaison between our Local and the Technological Changes Committees of those Organizations to which we are affiliated. In addition they maintain regular contact with all other Public Service unions on the issue of Technological Change.

In terms of service to individual Union members, the committee maintains regular contact with all members who are affected employees and keeps track of ongoing Org and Tech (Article 6) grievances.

The chair (Advisor) of this committee reports regularly to the National Representative and to the Advisory Group and to the Council of Unit Co-ordinators.

WORKLOAD

Article 25 In the Collective Agreement states the following:

“The Employer and the Union are committed to maintaining a workplace that demonstrates a sincere and continuing interest in the individual and collective well-being of all employees and recognizes the inherent worth and dignity of every employee.

The Employer undertakes to:

§ Protect the safety and health of its employees when assigning work, covering absence or vacation leave.

§ Ensure that there is no unreasonable workload imposed on an employee.

The Employer and the Union acknowledge that workload can fluctuate and should be reviewed on an ongoing basis with the goal of equitable and reasonable distribution of workload.

The Employer will ensure that employees know what is expected of them by providing ongoing performance feedback and collaborate on development objectives through regular supervision.”

Jointly, Union and management have designated individual contact persons to specific positions to assist with related workload issues. If these issues cannot be resolved at the local level, either party or both can jointly bring the issue to the identified contacts who will engage the parties to discuss recommendations to resolve the issue(s).

The workload committee role mandate is to make recommendations if the issue is unable to be addressed at the Local level. If the issue still cannot be resolved, it can then be escalated to the Joint Workload Committee for further discussion. The local reserves the right to file grievances under the workload language in the collective agreement if required.
