Another head slap to our union. 1000's of hours of forced overtime. Apparently these ding dongs are so locked up in their hotel rooms that nobody told them that the company voluntarily stopped forced overtime.... Unbelievable....
Yep, and they can whine all they want about health and safety, slips and falls when anyone with a functional brain knows that CMBs is the best solution.

Wish they would drop it, I enjoy my foot walk and I'm an adult who's well aware of the risks.

LCA is a position like LC or RLC. You'll stay in group 2 and wait for an LCA position to go up in the bid book. They are high seniority positions that usually only come up during a restructure. There are also parttime LCA positions which might be easier to get.

Taking a volume count in a depot then redesigning all the routes with updated values. It happens every 5 years or so. All the routes get re-bid in order of seniority.

Does restructuring usually create new walks requiring more FT staff?

We were just told at depot 1 in Hamilton that we expect to see an additional 5-6 routes created from this restructure.

I think it really depends on how much the last restructure was screwed up.

True, and if they implement night routers in your depot you may even lose a walk.

Restructuring here last year resulted in a gain of 3 part time positions.

Umm, I think your depot might be the outlier. Smiling Face With Open Mouth

I've heard a restructure costs ~$1 million to implement.

We just had one a year and a half ago. And our volume count starts in three weeks

I guess I should say that restructuring a PT station in a CMB converted zone is much, much easier. 2 years would be amazing, but they just keep overassessing our routes instead since they're waiting on the next government to see if they'll be allowed to start door-to-door removal again.

Out west here, less than 50% of depots are sequenced and they're no longer doing PT conversions so restructuring those manual sort stations are almost a zero priority. They also never started our CMB conversion. I've heard that after PT implementation there's supposed to be a second restructure within 2 years, but none of the depots have gotten their second yet (the oldest PT station in our zone was implemented just over 4 years ago).

Question: the union rarely returns my phone calls or
Emails so I’ll ask for a quicker response here.

Why was there two union due payments deducted from pay period 1?

$83 was taken off twice. One for arrears?

Thanks
