In the current round of negotiations, the parties (CUPW and CPC) agreed to create a new classification in Group 3 (VHE-10 Full-Service Vehicle Mechanic) and to form a committee to study and implement changes in an effort to streamline the roles in Groups 3 and 4. The committee will begin its work as soon as possible and any changes, if agreed upon, will be implemented during the life of the new collective agreement.
The Union achieved our demand for a new classification of Full-Service Vehicle Mechanic (VHE-10). This new classification will be paid at a rate 7.2% higher than VHE-9.
All current VHE-9 employees, that are qualified, will have an opportunity to be reclassified as VHE-10.
Note: The parties are close to signing a memorandum to have the new wage rates take effect on October 31, 2019.
The Language Review Committee for Groups 3 & 4 will be comprised of two members selected by the Union and two members selected by Canada Post. The mandate of this committee will be to attempt to streamline the roles in Groups 3 & 4 and create a single “Group” for Engineering and Maintenance.
Within 60 days of the signing of a new collective agreement the committee shall work on the following (note: we are close to signing a memorandum with CPC to start this process immediately.):
Upon completion of the review and if the national executive board and the Corporation reach an agreement on all provisions for a combined Group, the collective agreement will be deemed to be modified as of the date that a memorandum of agreement is signed by both parties.
