  • Before: Dan Butler
  • Decision Rendered: 2006-03-21
  • Original Language: English

Subject terms:

Seasonal employee – No recall – Workforce adjustment – Technical Services Group collective agreement

The grievor was an indeterminate seasonal Assistant Grain Inspector with the Canadian Grain Commission in Thunder Bay – she was not recalled from seasonal lay-off at the beginning of the 2002-2003 shipping season – she grieved that the employer had failed to apply to her the work force adjustment provisions of the collective agreement at that time – the adjudicator concluded that the fact of not recalling the grievor to work at the beginning of the 2002-2003 shipping season did not trigger a work force adjustment situation within the meaning of the collective agreement – although the employer decided later in the shipping season that “. . . the services of one or more indeterminate employees will no longer be required beyond a specified date. . . .”, which triggered a work force adjustment contemplated by the collective agreement, it had not made such a decision in relation to the grievor at the beginning of the shipping season.

Grievance denied.
