Dear Mr. Barnaby,
Re: Grievance Article(s) (2, 9 and 34)
We the Canadian Union of Public Employees Local 110, are requesting, a meeting to discuss the following with the explanation attached, at your earliest convenience.
That the Divisions Human Resources Dept. act as the administrator/negotiator/interpreter regarding the Collective agreement meet between ourselves and the Winnipeg School Division administration.
In light of the past 2 grievances re: St. Johns and Kelvin and in light of the numerous views and/or interpretation of our Collective agreement … (we have over 85 buildings with as many as 85 different interpretations of our Collective Agreement) … as well as the lack of Human Resources skills shown by some School Administrators. We do not feel this request to be unreasonable.
We agree that some School administrators have the skills required to conduct business with the Union as well some seem to have an understanding and/or abilities regarding Labour Law as well as Human Rights legislation, but most do not.
