 WAIVER AND RELEASE FORM – CTX/EDX TRAINING

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

Members who applied to receive training for CTX and EDX were asked by the Company to sign a waiver and release form. This form released the Company of any liability, without limitation, related to injuries which may occur, regardless of negligence, arising from physical testing.

The IAM was not provided with the form in advance nor were we advised of the Company’s intentions with respect to having members sign these forms, further we were not advised of any physical testing requirement related to the posting.9_2_

Upon our awareness, we immediately communicated our objections to this form, alleging violations of the collective agreement, Canada Labour Code and Worksafe regulations.

In response, the Company agreed to stop the signing of the waiver and release form and has confirmed in writing that any forms already signed and in their possession have been shredded.

Please be guided accordingly.

In Solidarity,

Tania Canniff, General Chairperson

Transportation District 140, IAM & AW
