as a Temp rapidly approaching my 480 hours what would be the suggested way to try and get permanent the fastest?? Should I put in a transfer request for PT and FT to every depot within driving range or can I only put it in for my own depot that I am working out of?

It goes by zone not depot but just request the depot you're at if that's where you wanna stay and hope for the best and or start placing bids on relief positions.

I don’t know if you knew this or not, but you can be hired permanently prior to the completion of your probation period, so you should already have your transfer request submitted.

As someone mentioned earlier, you can only apply for permanent (indeterminate) status within the zone you’re working (not depot specific). For example, Hamilton has five depots all a part of one zone, “Hamilton”.

If the goal is to get hired full-time as quickly as possible and you don’t mind spending time as a P04 in the plant (assuming your zone has one), then your application should look like this:

FT-LC
FT-P04
PT-LC
PT-P04.

If you’re hired full-time for either position, you must stay in that position for a year before you’re able to transfer. Conversely, if you’re hired part-time in either role and a full time position becomes available, you will be, “promoted” to that position on a seniority basis.

gotcha..thanks my paperwork is in for my current depot..we are a smaller city so just one depot just was not sure how it worked I know a recent retiree is being replaced by a transfer from another city so not sure how it worked for temps.

FT-LC
FT-P04
PT-LC
PT-P04.

Hello folks and happy holidays,

I actualy have a couple of questions to ask you senior folks, 1 I'm a casual po4 working in the plant and looking to move to a different province in the future but where I want to move I believe they don't have any plants but only depots , what should I be doing to transfer ?I will accept any other positions for my move if I have to , 2 is it better to put my transfer as a casual or became permenent and then put transfer ? 3 is there a place where I can look up the depots and plant locations nation wide?
