Changes to Appendix S, Letter of Agreement S3 - REVISED

Friday, August 18, 2017
To: MoveUP Members at Coast Mountain Bus Transit Security

Recently your union has been in discussions with the employer with regards to possible changes to Appendix S and Letter of Agreement S3. As you may have heard, these changes involve the possibility of amalgamating the GSP and GIO roles, as well as amendments to the currently existing work schedules.

The parties have now reached a tentative agreement regarding these changes. A copy of this agreement is attached for your review. The highlights of this change are as follows:

  • Amalgamation of GSP and GIO, at Job Group 7, with a new job description combining the two roles
  • Change in the length of the work day from 10 hours to 8.75 hours, with a four on/three off schedule
  • The addition of a 50% limit on “split shifts”, which the employer intends to introduce

Your union strongly recommends ratification of these amendments. We are holding four meetings in order to provide an opportunity for any questions, for us to explain the changes and the reasons for recommendation, and for you to vote. They are as follows.

DATE:    Friday, August 25   AND   Monday, August 28
PLACE: 307 Columbia Street
TIME:    15:00-16:00 AND 19:00-20:00

Please make every effort to attend.

In solidarity,

Stephen Von Sychowski
Union Representative
