Technological Changes. Company shall continue to provide Union with as much notice as practicable of technological changes in its business which may have a significant effect on its workforce. In such circumstances, Company and Union shall then meet to study and endeavor to adopt appropriate solutions, such as retraining or special placement, as may be practicable before Company implements the provisions of Titles 206, 306, and 19 of the Physical and Clerical Agreements. (Added 1-1-88)TITLE 20. SAFETY
Technological Changes. The Union recognizes the Employer’s right to implement technological changes in the work performed by Bargaining Unit employees. The Employer shall give reasonable advance notice (in no case less than thirty (30) days) to the Union of the Employer’s intent to implement such changes. This notice shall include sufficient information in order for the Union to be able to make a proper evaluation of the impact, if any, on Bargaining Unit employees. When, as a result of technological changes, new classes are established to perform Bargaining Unit work, the Employer agrees that the parties shall recommend jointly to the Civil Service Commission that such new classes be included in the Bargaining Unit.
Technological Changes. If technological changes change the size of CARRIER's coverage area or impose restrictions on the use of a Subscriber's Equipment, CARRIER will inform AGENT of such changes and AGENT will inform Subscribers with whom AGENT comes into contact of such changes or restrictions. Failure by AGENT to inform Subscribers of such changes will be considered a material breach of this Agreement.
Technological Changes. No portion of this Agreement shall preclude the introduction, termination, or substitution of any technological change to existing products, services, techniques or machinery, or locations of operations.
Technological Changes. The Employer will notify the Union at least thirty (30) calendar days in advance of any technological change, which the Employer plans to introduce which will significantly change the status of the employees within the bargaining unit. The Employer agrees to meet and discuss with the Union the impact of the technological change on the Library, and its employees and the public.
Technological Changes. The Co-operative agrees to notify the Union at least three(3) months in advance of any technological change that may result in the displacement of employees. Any full-time employee with one (1) or more years of service, displaced due to technological changes, shall be trained for any new positions created by the technological change, or retrained for a position presently in existence within the bargaining unit, providing they have sufficient seniority to displace a junior employee. Said employee shall be given credit for their career hours to a maximum of seventy-five hundred one (7,501) hours in that classification. If the employee is successfully retrained within the similar period given a new employee under Article 4.7 of this Agreement, the employee may then exercise his/her seniority rights over junior, full-time employees within that classification. If the employee is successfully retrained within the period given, then the employee will progress through the acceleration period of the new classification. If said employee cannot satisfactorily be retrained in that position he/she shall be afforded an opportunity, based on seniority, to work part-time in his/her former classification, if said classification is still in existence; otherwise, he/she shall be terminated with severance pay, as below: If an employee refuses part-time employment, he/she shall be considered to have terminated employment with the Co- operative. Any regular, full-time employee with one (1) or more years’ service, whose employment is terminated by the Co-operative under this provision, shall receive one (1)week’s severance pay for each year of continuous full-time service, up to a maximum of fifteen (15) weeks’ pay. This clause does not apply to employees who accept other employment with the Co-operative outside the jurisdiction of this Agreement. The Co-operative will attempt, to the best of his ability, to find a job within the bargaining unit for full-time employees with less than one (1) years’ seniority, and part-time employees. If it is not possible, service of said employees will be terminated. This section is intended to assist employees affected by any technological change and, accordingly, any legislation enacted by the Alberta Provincial Government would not apply during the term of the Collective Agreement between the Co-operative and the Union, providing this clause meets the minimum standards of such legislation.
Technological Changes. The Employer agrees to give as much advance notice as is reasonably possible, of any technological change(s) affecting Employees in the bargaining unit and will, if so requested in writing, meet with the Union to discuss such change(s). The employer will provide paid in service training to all affected Employees. At least forty-five (45) calendar days notice will be given to the Union if any such change(s) displaces an existing permanent Employee(s). Where computers and/or new computer technology (e.g. computer charting) are introduced into the workplace that Employees are required to utilize in the course of their duties, the Employer agrees that necessary training will be provided at no cost to the Employees involved.
Technological Changes. If technological changes change the size of NewCo's coverage area for a type of Wireless Service or impose restrictions on the use of applicable Equipment, NewCo will provide Agent with written notification of such changes and Agent will inform Subscribers activated by Agent after receipt of such notice from NewCo of such changes or restrictions. Failure by Agent to use good faith efforts to inform Subscribers activated by Agent after receipt by Agent of such notice from NewCo of such changes will be considered a material breach of this Agreement.
Technological Changes. Recognizing the need for introducing from time to time, technological changes and automation, and having full concern for the impact of such changes on its employees, the following procedures have been agreed to:
Technological Changes. The parties understand that due to improvements in technology, there are more opportunities for employers to have knowledge regarding the whereabouts and conduct of their employees. While the Hospital will continue to explore and pursue technological improvements, it shall not use such technology for purposes of tracking employee’s whereabouts, time spent in patient care, time spent on lunches or breaks, etc. for purposes of disciplinary action. The above language shall not prohibit the use of such technology in situations where the Hospital reasonably suspects that an employee has engaged in unlawful activity (e.g. theft, drug diversion, physical abuse of a patient, discrimination/harassment), nor shall it prohibit the Hospital’s use of such technology for more systemic (rather than individual tracking) purposes such as work process analysis.
