Joint National Grievance Committee works through several issues at February 2017 meeting

The newly appointed National Grievance Committee (NGC) met to discuss 42 grievances involving a range of issues including promotion, unfair labour practice, discipline, medical privacy and benefits.

In recent months, of the 21 outstanding grievances, the union and CBC management resolved one  grievance and referred six to arbitration.

At the February meeting, the two sides also examined 21 new grievances, settling one issue, sending three to arbitration, and 11 to the sub-committee addressing medical privacy for resolution.

The increase in the number of grievances is of concern to the committee and was discussed with management at this meeting in an effort to halt this trend.

Discussions on all issues will continue, and the committee is scheduled to meet again the week of June 12.

If you have any questions or concerns regarding this information, please contact the national grievance committee representative in your area.
