WE’RE WORKING ON IT: Executive Grievance for storm-stayed Viterra employees moving to Step 2

GSU’s executive grievance claiming pressing necessity leave for Viterra employees who were storm stayed on Nov. 9 is going to a Step 2 grievance meeting early in the new year.

“We attempted to convince the employer of the merits of the case without commencing formal grievance action, but ultimately it became necessary to follow the grievance route,” said GSU general secretary Hugh Wagner. “If a sewer back-up would qualify an employee for pressing necessity leave, why wouldn’t unpassable streets or unsafe driving conditions?”

GSU is aiming to hold the step two grievance meeting during the first week of January and report back here as matters unfold.
