The CPR application for judicial review of the Arbitrator’s Decision is dismissed, with costs to the Union as the successful party.

Brothers and Sisters,

With the election now complete and the swearing in of the Officers on March 5th, I would once again like to thank all the members that took the time to vote. I truly believe that with the elected members of this Board, we all have one interest, and that is working for you to ensure your rights and privileges are protected.

1. Dressed and Ready Policy
2. Efficiency Testing
3. Suspensions
4. Change Room or a Storage Room during off cycle
5. Contracting Out as per article 13.9 Appendix 1
6. Pay issues

With our legal counsel David Brown, we are working on grievances for each Region. This week Mr. Brown will be working with Director Patrick Gauthier and Secretary/Treasurer Anthony Della Porta covering the Atlantic Region. Next, Mr. Brown will be working on the grievances in the Pacific Region with Director Trevor Marshall and Vice President Henry Helfenbein. Once the TR&E Crew start-up meetings have been completed on the Prairies and Eastern Region, Mr. Brown will meet in Ottawa with Director Gary McDougall representing the Prairie Region and Director Wade Phillips for the Eastern Region.

The Directors will be making every effort to attend all the Crew start-ups and I hope to get out and attend some as well. The entire Executive Board would like to express that we are here to correct any issues, or answer any question or concerns, so please do not hesitate to call.
We will be trying to keep this web page up to date.
