Nope...it's $1 per hour. And it's definitely worth it in a station where you know most/all of the walks...not so much if you don't.

Edit: just saw that you are a term...unless something has changed recently, what I said still applies. But I'll admit I'm not sure. Ask union rep they will know.
For those of us hired after Feb. 1, 2013, per page 387 in our Agreement bible: only difference $0.53 to $0.57 per hour. I'm on my 1st year completed relief @ $21.37...whereas a 1 yr completed route owner is @ $20.83, so only $0.54 per hor more as relief.

Of course you get your 8 hrs. And be prepared for OT on Monday as it is gonna be a disaster..

My supervisor called me twice on my cell...did not answer lol. Came back to depot & she made a point to tell me I did not answer her calls. Told her she was supposed to use Jabber on our PDT to notify/contact us.

They get our contact info from staffing/computer...

I agree with what CUPW is saying, but lately it seems that all they care to talk about is the RSMC issues... What about us poor LCs?
RSMC contract ran out first so my guess that is why we are seeing so much...my guess February they will get down to urban..and have something hammered out by about May or june...right when CP is not busy...I swear if Union had any guts they would hold off and strike end of October....see all them parcels start backing up in November and see what kind of offer they throw out.

Southern Ontario literally went from +10 with heavy rain to -6 and snow in about two hours. It was turning into an ice rink rapidly.

I’ve never had this happen before. Even when that bad ice storm happened 4 years ago, they left us out there.

I don't have a cell phone. I always laugh when I come home and check my voice mail to find messages from supervisors.
It's almost as funny as customers leaving their phone numbers taped to doors asking to call when they are getting a parcel!
I used Jabber once to contact a sup when I was in a minor car accident. I didn't get a reply until I was already back at the depot finishing my day!
None of them log on because they don't expect to hear from us.

Thanks for all the tips guys.

first time in a taxi depot and it was amazing how much CP pays for taxi, I mean if they contract this out at a rate of $40/person/day you would only need to drive out 5 carriers who have trips nearby for an incredible retirement job.

was surprised Canada post actually cared about safety to have us get back from the weather, now if they cared about safety they would get rid of second wave so people don't have to deliver in the dark before someone gets hurt or killed
