WE’RE WORKING ON IT: Local 1 (Viterra) car loading and standby issues subject of meeting

GSU president Jim Brown and general secretary Hugh Wagner are meeting with Viterra management on Aug. 10 to discuss issues related to on again/off again train loading directives and the strain imposed on country operations employees.

“It seems as though operations management expect employees to be at their beck and call to load trains that are seldom spotted when forecast. This happens all too frequently and we’re working with GSU members to come up with relief and solutions,” said Jim Brown. “This meeting is another attempt to find a fix and we’ll issue a follow up report.”

If you need some advice about how to approach management with a problem, don’t hesitate to call your GSU staff rep. No problem is too small and sometimes a brief comment, email, or meeting is all that’s needed to address a situation. Call us when you think there is a problem to be fixed.
