Maintenance Truck Grievance Update

Sisters and Brothers

I would like to take this opportunity to update you on the Maintenance Truck Grievance.  As you are aware the board notified the union on December 23, 2015 that maintenance trucks would be parked at the Education centre effective Monday January 4th 2016.

The union filed a grievance over the this decision and we met with a mediation officer on Monday February 29, 2016 to see if we could over turn the decision. The union provided the mediator with our position and at this point all we can say is the board is going back to investigate further and the grievance is on hold until that information is gathered. Once that info is gathered we will meet again. The mediator will remain seized on the case.

In order preserve the dignity of the grievance this is all we are prepared to say at this time.

Yours In Solidarity

John Tompa
