ANOTHER PROBLEM SOLVED: Local 1 (Viterra) employee requests payout of overtime

A Viterra employee requested that some of their banked overtime be paid out.  The employee’s manager denied the payout of the entire portion and suggested that time off be used for the remainder.  

Staff rep Dale Markling had previously addressed the same problem when the employee was experiencing the same issue and got the overtime paid out, and Dale was contacted when the same issue began happening again. Dale contacted Human Resources at Viterra and within the week the employee’s request to have banked overtime paid out was granted. 

Under the Viterra Collective Agreement, employees have the right to request payout of their overtime.
