Contract Limits Scope of “Staffing Survey”

|Canadian Labour Reporter|Last Updated: 02/01/2011

The content of a “staffing survey” regularly conducted by the union during work time and sanctioned by the collective agreement became the subject of a dispute.

The employer said that the information sought by the union exceeded the scope of what was permitted by the collective agreement and filed a grievance to that effect.

The Union grieved the employer’s refusal to allow the survey to be conducted.
