Unifor 707A Collective Agreement SuncorHungcp
The union`s July 2012 political complaint stated that the new policy with the collective agreement, common law, values and principles of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms, the Alberta Human Resources Protection Act and the Alberta Human Rights Act. Suncor found that while the collective agreement did not specifically authorize this type of random testing, the new policy was only one further step in a series of policy changes that the company had introduced over the years to enhance inherently hazardous workplace safety in the oil sands, and that this new policy was a reasonable exercise of management rights. Given that our jurisdiction derives from the collective agreement and extends only to the employer and members of the collective agreement unit and that the impact on data protection rights will be felt by this bargaining unit as a result of our decision and that there will be only one commitment for them, it makes sense for this board to analyze the costs and benefits of this bargaining unit and not its effects on two-thirds of the bargaining units. Workers. which are also present at Oil Sands operations. The four-year collective agreement applies to Unifor members working in this sector across Canada. These include higher wages, severance pay and a new framework for combating domestic violence. Suncor was selected by Unifor as the chosen employer to define the model that will be put in place for the remaining employers in the energy sector. The majority mixed two issues and went too far in rejecting Suncor`s policy argument. The first issue is the Tribunal`s jurisdiction to rule only on issues arising from the collective agreement. The second question is what evidence is relevant to whether there is a general substance abuse problem in the workplace. These two questions are different. Just because the court was not competent to impose or approve drug and alcohol testing of non-unionized employees, this does not mean that Suncors` overall experience with substance abuse in its Fort McMurray operations did not influence the issue in court.
