A GSU Local 2 (Viterra Head office) member received a position elimination notice on Dec. 2, 2020 with the 120-day notice period expiring on April 1, 2021. When the member inquired whether they would receive the salary increase that was effective Jan. 1, 2021, initially they were told they weren’t eligible for the increase. That’s when the member contacted the GSU office in Regina.
A quick intervention with Viterra’s HR Director by GSU resolved the matter in favour of the union member who will receive a salary increase retroactive to January 1, 2021, notwithstanding the fact that their last day of employment was April 1.
Sometimes a brief comment, email or meeting is all that is needed to rectify a situation.
