New Union for City

    Custodial and maintenance workers at three City buildings will have a new union, but the size of the unit still has to be determined.

    The Ontario Labor Relations Board (ORLB) is currently in the midst of a hearing to determine whether the unit will be certified and who should be among its members.

    A supervised vote was held Nov. 18, with a 30-20 margin of victory for those favoring the union to represent custodians and maintenance workers at City  Hall, the Living Arts Centre and the Central Library.

    Another 38 employees, skilled tradespeople such as electricians and carpenters who work mostly out of offices on Erindale Station Rd.,  also voted.

    However, their votes were set aside because, while the City favored their inclusion, the union said it had not asked for their membership.

    When the ORLB hearing began in December, the parties agreed to drop the Erindale employees from the unit, provided one additional senior service person was excluded from the union.

    Still  in dispute is whether eight skilled service persons who work at the three buildings are in or out of the new unit of  the International Association of  Machinists and Aerospace Workers  (IAMAW).  The City is arguing the employees should be excluded.  "The unit is there.  That's the bottom line," says Walter Brown of the Machinists  Union.  "It's just the size of the unit that's in dispute."

[COMMENTS BY DON B.  - general speaking the "Missing News" doesn't cover the issue fully of accuracy and with a City basis.  Often this is found in the fact  the City's comments are reported with out comment as to how reasonable they are.
