    is not to respond to human resources matters The colleges would also like to limit the amount of time it takes grievances to be scheduled from when they are referred to arbitration This proposal would put grievances of lesser priority i e termination vs removal of a disciplinary letter from your file at a greater risk of being lost solely on the basis that higher priority issues were scheduled Letter of Understanding Less than 12 Month Positions The employer would like to further erode the rights of employees who work under this Letter of Understanding by lessening the amount of vacation they would receive This is another example of management introducing the idea of a two tier system Time off St Lawrence College Letter The union is studying this proposal Letter of Understanding Supplementary Arbitrators Management would like to delete this letter This could mean in the future that when arbitrators come off the main list there would be no secondary list from which to choose arbitrators This would mean delaying the ability to schedule arbitrations and their demand to reduce the time to have arbitrations scheduled would further put grievances at risk Initiatives Opportunities Letter of Understanding Management introduced this as a trial letter during the last round of bargaining Now they want to permanently embed this into the collective agreement The union has reviewed the use of this letter since its introduction We ve monitored the use of it and we want to remove it It has led to a number of issues a the improper evaluating of the position for determination of paybands b the improper hiring of these temporary positions from outside of the college rather than professional development for our members and c management s inability at some colleges to plan First the position is for six months then they extend it The extension runs out and they want to extend it again We would prefer to remove this letter as the trial period has expired and the use of these positions has been improper in many cases Appendix G Summer Student Workers Management would like to introduce a rolling period for these positions They do not wish these to be associated with students looking for summer jobs they want to introduce new short term full time positions to be allowed annually With this proposal you can kiss our jobs good bye as they would be replaced by temporary full time workers Letter of Understanding re a market study of wages and benefits for support staff Management would like to throw away the last 11 years of work on our evaluation system and the last 43 years on our benefits plan Over the years a lot of hard work has been undertaken to ensure that support staff have been compensated properly in terms of wages and benefits Management now wants to look at the lowest common denominator to tie our future to that We already have a wage compensation plan that is equitable internally why would we need to go outside of the colleges to compare In regards to the benefit plan we have a good benefits plan right now and it would be an excellent one if management agreed to our proposed changes Why would we change it to provide less benefits There are also groups within the college with which we can compare wages and benefits We all work for the same employer why should we be treated less than others Wages and Benefits to be discussed later Management will share a wage package with your bargaining team at a later time We can only imagine why We provided an in depth document including our wage and benefits proposals Management made it very clear that this is a whole new way to bargain and the pressure is on due to the shorter negotiating timelines In 2008 management tabled a monetary package on June 10 and the rationale they gave to delay it until then was they had to wait for their budget This time we asked them to provide the details before we made the decision to take a strike vote they refused The only reason we can see for their refusals based on their non monetary positions and from statements they have made at the bargaining table is to drive down wages and benefits introduce a two tiered system for wages and benefits and introduce other changes that would negatively affect our wages and benefits Let s be honest if the wages and benefits they plan to introduce were of greater benefit they would be waving those in front of you trying to show how generous they were Your team hopes to achieve a collective agreement that strengthens your rights your job security and your representation We also hope to protect the conditions we currently have now that results in good jobs today tomorrow and into the future We need a 100 per cent strike mandate We must draw the line in the sand At this point management has indicated that a strike vote is a normal part of bargaining They are correct We would say that voting in favour of a strike is also a normal part of bargaining one which the colleges would expect Let s show the colleges that we are support staff we don t just meet expectations we exceed them Support staff can exceed management s expectations by giving your team an overwhelming vote in favour of a strike We exceed expectations everyday in our jobs The team is calling on you to exceed expectations in the upcoming vote June 9 Bargaining team calls for 100 per cent strike mandate On June 7th we were pumped and ready to start bargaining We had done our homework We knew the timelines we faced We had visited the colleges to prepare you for this round of bargaining We presented management with a full and comprehensive exchange document including our monetary expectations We knew that we had to move fast and disclose our positions more swiftly than ever thanks to changes to the Colleges Collective Bargaining Act CCBA which now imposes shortened timelines during the bargaining process In short our preparations were in order On the same day we received an exchange document from management that contains no monetary position and a whole lot of vague sounding concessions that the colleges would like us to cough up In our view it is an incomplete document that will take weeks to decipher We took to heart the shortened timeline changes that are contained in the new CCBA and prepared ourselves accordingly The colleges didn t Brothers and sisters we do not have the time nor the energy to allow management to proceed this way The colleges called for changes to the CCBA they got those changes but they insist on insulting our intelligence by going forward with bargaining as if itwas business as usual and nothing had changed even though they reminded us of those changes at the bargaining table They believe they can distract our attention away from the negotiating table by instead having usfocus on the games they are playing inside our locals Most of the colleges have denied our book offs for mobilizers Some have denied our access to meeting rooms for member meetings related to bargaining Others have denied local time off and dictated what local time off can be used for They have even tried to force local executives to declare what union business our members were undertaking during the requested local time This is the game the colleges have elected to play They re trying to make the rules for us as they go One problem they re neglecting to take YOU into consideration We have made a decision that best reflects our ability to get you the best possible contract we can Management s decision and actions show they have the opposite goal in mind Your team has taken the decision to ask you for a strike mandate We ve made this decision for a number of reasons First because of the disrespect management has exhibited against our members prior to our Notice to Bargain on June 3rd and again on June 7th with their vague and ambiguous proposals We came to the table with specific demands including a clear position on monetary issues They replied with no meaningful proposals Second we ve taken the decision to call for a strike mandate because otherwise the tight legislative time lines do not give management any incentive whatsoever to engage in meaningful negotiations The team strongly recommends that you back your team with a strike mandate of 100 per cent We need to send a message to the Colleges that states unequivocally respect us and take us seriously or face the consequences of your actions In the next little while we will be meeting with the Ministry of Labour to set up vote procedures and dates We will try and influence the vote date as much as we can to get an earlier date rather than a later one This will ensure that when we receive a strong strike mandate from you we will have plenty of time to do what management should have wanted to do negotiate a fair contract Read our Q A For more information on this round of CAAT Support bargaining read our Q A It s online at

National Day of Mourning Worker memorial day will emphasize criminal code provisions for corporate killing of workers Oakville ON On April 28 workers their families labour leaders and others in Oakville will gather to demand improvements to workplace health and safety laws and better enforcement of existing laws This includes enforcement of Criminal Code provisions for corporate killing of workers Bill C 45 amended Canada s Criminal Code in 2004 It created requirements that hold organizations and individuals within the organization criminally liable for death or bodily harm caused at work Specifically Section 217 1 of the Code establishes a legal duty for persons directing the work of others to take reasonable steps to ensure the safety of workers and the public To date one company has been convicted under these provisions The first C 45 charge in Ontario proceeded to court on March 22 2010 Millennium Crane Rentals of Sault Ste Marie was charged with criminal negligence causing the death of a worker A criminal investigation into the December 24 2009 construction incident that killed four workers and shattered the legs and spine of a fifth worker is now underway According to Workplace Safety Insurance Board statistics last year the families of 488 workers filed death claims and more than 317 000 workers filed occupational injury and disease claims The outcomes of countless other workplace incidents and exposures go unreported especially occupational disease claims In 1984 the Canadian Labour Congress and its affiliated unions established April 28th
