G4S – PRE-BOARD SCREENING PERSONNEL LOCAL LODGE 16 – PACIFIC REGION NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE – FEBRUARY 1, 2019

NEGOTIATIONS UPDATE – FEBRUARY 1, 2019

Dear Members:
Further to our bulletin of January 14, 2019, the parties reconvened in Mediation, January 22 & 23, 2019.

Your Negotiations Committee presented the Company with a comprehensive proposal, detailing your bargaining priorities, in response to the Company’s comprehensive proposal of January 11, 2019.

We also requested additional information, pertaining to the 2018 labour costs and current employee particulars to assist us in assessing the Company’s offer and preparing our response.

The Company responded with an offer withdrawing and/or amending their position on several items that the Union had believed were resolved between the parties. Your Negotiations Committee advised the Company that we were not in a position to respond to their proposal at that time and that we were available to reconvene to resume Collective Bargaining, February 26 – 28, 2019.

On January 28, 2019, the Company provided the information we requested on labour costs and employee particulars. Your Negotiations Committee is reviewing the material provided and is considering our response. We remain available, as proposed to resume Collective Bargaining on February 26 – 28, 2019 and will continue to bargain in good faith to achieve the renewal of a Collective Agreement.

Your Negotiations Committee has and continues to fight to improve upon and protect provisions of the Collective Agreement that are of critical importance to our Members. We are fighting to provide you with a
tentative agreement that recognizes your contributions and rewards your hard work and commitment.

The Negotiations Committee has decided to continue with the Strike Votes at each Bargaining Unit throughout the Region to give you an opportunity to send a message to G4S about your support for a fair Collective Agreement. The timing and locations of each vote will be coordinated with the Chief Shop Stewards. Details pertaining to the voting location, information sessions and polling hours for each Bargaining Unit will be communicated to the Membership in advance.

Your Negotiations Committee thanks your continued support, patience and solidarity and commends you for your continued professionalism in preserving the safety and security of the public.

We continue to consult with our legal counsel regarding our options to resolve this situation and hope to provide you with a fair agreement.

Remember to always work safe.

In Solidarity,


Tania Canniff, General Chairperson Todd Haverstock, General Chairperson

G4S – PRE-BOARD SCREENING PERSONNEL LOCAL LODGE 16 – PACIFIC REGION BCMSP GRIEVANCE – MEDIATION SETTLEMENT

BCMSP GRIEVANCE – MEDIATION SETTLEMENT

Dear Members:

In April 2017, the IAMAW filed a grievance upon our discovery that the Company had violated the Collective Agreement by not providing and contributing 100% towards the cost of BC Health and Wellness Plan Premiums (BCMSP), as agreed between the parties.

The violation of the Collective Agreement primarily affects employees hired since June 2014 throughout the Pacific Region, when the Company unilaterally introduced a change in practice, through the introduction of a new hire form.

The Company was less than cooperative in responding to our inquiries and investigation, concerning the entitlements that our Members were receiving. Accordingly, we were left with no alternative but to advance a grievance, refer the matter to arbitration and seek an order from the Arbitrator, which directed the Company to disclose to the IAMAW, the information we required to represent the Membership.

We are pleased to advise the Membership that the IAMAW was successful in mediating a settlement to this grievance on January 14 and 15, 2019.

The Company has agreed to pay $290,000.00 in redress to affected Members, in accordance with the terms and conditions of the settlement agreement.

The settlement agreement requires the Company to provide the IAMAW with a list of current employees who are not in receipt of at least the full single payor rate of MSP premiums for 2017 and 2018.

In response, the IAMAW will no later than March 15, 2019, provide the Company with the pro rata amount of payment to be paid to each such employee, subject to their date of entitlement. The Company will make the pro rata payment to the affected employees, less required withholdings on April 5, 2019 payroll date.

Eligible Members who are or have been incurring an actual cost for MSP premiums but who have not submitted an invoice for reimbursement may claim reimbursement for such premiums for the period commencing January 1, 2019, by providing a copy of a recent MSP invoice to start reimbursement.

If you are not currently enrolled in MSP, you are entitled to receive reimbursement for this coverage, in accordance with Article 21.03 (c) of the Collective Agreement. Information concerning enrollment is available at:

https://www2.gov.bc.ca/gov/content/health/health-drug-coverage/msp/bc-residents/eligibilityand-enrolment/how-to-enrol

Members hired prior to June 2014 will not be required to provide proof of cost for reimbursement for MSP payments, unless they request a change in coverage levels.

We sincerely thank the Membership for your patience and support throughout this process.

In Solidarity,


Tania Canniff, General Chairperson Todd Haverstock, General Chairperson
Transportation District 140, IAMAW Transportation District 140, IAMAW
