Today PSAC filed a policy grievance against Parks Canada over its voluntary layoff program which violates the Workforce Adjustment Appendix (WFAA) of the collective agreement.
The grievance demands that the agency negotiate a voluntary program with the union that meets the requirements of Appendix K, the WFA Appendix.
On March 30th, the day after the federal budget, Parks Canada sent a message to all employees inviting them to volunteer to be considered for lay-offs. Employees had until April 10th to enter the program.
Ottawa, ON – Parks Canada announced plans to reduce the length of its season and hours of operation to “periods of highest requirements” for the boating season and the associated workforce.
This results in changes to the operating season for not only employees but boaters, marinas, boat operators and any community dependent upon tourism along the canals and waterways.
“The public wasn’t even given the courtesy of notice that this was on the chopping block,” said Christine Collins, National President of the Union of Canadian Transportation Employees.
