Statement of Policy. SAME DAY SENIORITY - SKILLED TRADES On Tuesday, September 28, 1982, discussions were held between the parties to clarify how the "Same Day Seniority" language applies to Skilled Trades and Apprentices in St. Catharines. As a result of these discussions, it was agreed that, for Skilled Trades and Apprentices only, where two employees have the same skilled trades date of entry, plant seniority will then be used to determine which employee is to be laid off or recalled, for shift preference, and for applying the provisions of Paragraph (1) (b) and (c) of Supplement No. 1 to the Local General Agreement. Should the employees plant seniority dates be the same, then serial number order will be used. (Lowest serial number will be considered as having the higher seniority.)
Statement of Policy. SKILLED TRADES DRIVING TOWMOTORS AS A TOOL OF THE TRADE During these negotiations, a very serious problem involving jurisdiction of Company personnel driving Towmotors was discussed. Both parties agreed that a solution had to be found before an agreement could be reached. The parties agreed that all Towmotors under 9 tons would be removed from the Maintenance Department. Sufficient Towmotor Drivers using Towmotors less than 9 tons would be assigned to the Maintenance Department to perform the transporting of materials and equipment. The driving of the Drott crane will be assigned to trained employees in the Millwright and Millwright-Hoisting Engineer classifications. It is recognized that Millwrights may do certain work using the 9 ton and over towmotor as a tool of the trade. It is also recognized that work done by under a 9 ton towmotor will not be performed by Skilled Trades. Company representatives have instructed Area Supervisors that no abuse to this document will be tolerated.
