CBC contract employees who are eligible to convert to staff under the new Collective Agreement have until the end of March to notify management if they want to do so. Contract employees with four or more years of continuous service before January 1, 2006, must notify their manager in writing by March 31.
Those contract employees who reach the four-year mark January 1 and later have 90 days to alert their manager in writing of their intention to move to permanent status.
The benefits of converting include more rights in the event of a layoff and severance pay at retirement. Those who convert to permanent status will be enrolled in the Corporation’s pension plan and may buy back all eligible service.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contract your regional Guild representative or the national Guild office at 416-591-5333 or 1-800-465-4149.
