Details on CBC job cuts to come week of May 25

The difficult wait is nearly over. Employees whose jobs have been identified to be cut in this spring’s downsizing will get notices from CBC management during the week of May 25. The Guild has begun meeting with management in local and national joint committees to discuss the process, which can include redeployment of affected employees into vacant jobs and bumping. It can also include the withdrawal of a redundancy notice if resources become available to hold on to the job.

On that front, CBC and the Guild continue to explore ways of reducing the job cuts. We hope to have concrete information on this effort in the near future.

It is important to remember that the letters to be handed out the week of May 25 are “redundancy notices” and not layoff notices. A redundancy notice signals the beginning of a process to find other work inside the CBC for people whose jobs are being cut. The Guild expects that layoffs will not happen until the end of July. Any employee affected by a layoff will get at least four weeks notice.

In the meantime, we urge you to review your seniority date on HR@my fingertips and to contact Shared Services if you believe your date is not correct.

If you still have questions, please get in touch with a member of your Guild location executive or write to info@cmg.ca .
