LETTER OF UNDERSTANDING. RE: STUDENT SUPPLEMENTAL EMPLOYMENT, Re: Article 3.06 Should students be assigned to bargaining unit work, they will not be paid less than the starting rate of new hires. It is agreed that all students hired will be considered probationary and will not accumulate seniority. All students will be hired between May 15th and will terminate their employment by Labour Day.

For the purposes of distributing overtime, the Company will maintain a separate “hours and date of hire list”. Students may only work overtime if all seniority employees on the shift have been exhausted as per Article 17. If it is ascertained that the student is not returning to school, and is seeking “permanent” employment, he/she will be given an opportunity to apply to a vacancy and be re- classified as a “normal hire” for all purposes of this Agreement. Upon completion of the forty-five working day probationary period the applicant will then be given seniority. The Company further agrees that students will not circumvent the seniority rights of seniority employees.
