Cusw Hydro One Agreement
The room disagreed. HODS has been partially set up for the construction of transmission lines. The only project that HODS had seriously studied was the construction of a transmission line via Lake Erie. Although the project was not completed, the Commission reviewed the work that would have been involved in this project as well as the work related to the construction of transmission lines in general and found that it was directly under the jurisdiction of the CUSW and the workers. On the other hand, the board found it difficult to imagine that any of the plans envisaged by HODS would result in work under one of the AU collective agreements. The AU claimed work on transfo stations, but there was no evidence that HODS ever considered building transfo stations. The AU also argued that a toilet or fountain could be installed in a conversion station, but the board dismissed it as « pure speculation, without evidence base. » Although the threshold is low, there must be some evidence that the union claims that bargaining rights could be eroded in the future. The companies submitted that none of the subsidiaries had done any work actually covered by the unions` collective agreements, that there had been no erosion of bargaining rights, and that the Board of Directors could not exercise its discretion. The purpose of paragraph 4 of Section 1 is to preserve the reasonableness of bargaining rights. It aims to protect them from intentional infiltration or erosion by commercial decisions totally separate from labour relations considerations. It is therefore necessary for an applicant to have to demonstrate that these bargaining rights are in fact or potentially eroded.
Under a collective construction agreement, this means that the work claimed or covered by that collective agreement is considered. Erosion should be only minor or reasonably likely. The right to work in the collective agreement must not be conclusive or obvious on his face. There must, however, be a real or potential activity of the related employer, which can reasonably be said to fall within the scope of the applicant`s collective agreement. LiUNA and PWU members who work in accordance with Schedule A of the PWU/Hydro One collective agreement are entitled to a refund of travel expenses if their regular stay is located more than 40 kilometres from the workplace. If a member`s normal residence is located more than 97 kilometres from the place of residence, a space and board allowance may be paid, subject to proof of a normal residence financial obligation (e.g.B. property tax bill, mortgage account, lease, lease declaration or up-to-date electricity bill). With regard to the daily travel/space and advice allowance for tenders, please note that all EPSCA/CUSW/LIUNA OPDC contracts are FIRM BID. This means that any daily, travel or travel and transportation allowances, as described in the corresponding articles for each EPSCA/CUSW/LIUNA OPDC agreement, will not be reimbursed by Hydro One.
