Nine employees in the Playlist Management department in Toronto – seven regular staff and two temporary – were advised on December 15 that their applications for newly created jobs in the department were not successful. Twelve other employees were successful.
Playlist Management is a new department that is responsible for scheduling television programming, commercials and promos. The work was formerly done by employees in various classifications in several departments. The Corporation”s Vision system enables the integration of the various scheduling needs; as a result the CBC has determined it can do the work with fewer people.
The collective agreement requires that the Corporation first try to reassign permanent employees before issuing any redundancy notices. This process is expected to be completed sometime in January.
