Grant et al. v. Treasury Board (Transport Canada)
Before: G. Gigučre
Appearances: G. Holbrook, for the Grievors; C. Edwards, for the Employer
Decision rendered: February 22, 2002
Jurisdiction – Compensation – Recruitment and Retention Allowance – Aircraft Operations Group – the collective agreement provided for a higher Recruitment and Retention Allowance for Group A employees than for Group B employees – the grievors, who were Group B employees, objected to the fact that certain Group B employees were receiving the Group A allowance and the grievors were not – the employer raised a number of objections to the adjudicator's jurisdiction – in light of the conclusion which he reached on the merits, the adjudicator found that it was not necessary for him to deal with these objections – the evidence established that the Group B employees who were receiving the Group A allowance were excluded from the bargaining unit and, therefore, were not covered by the collective agreement – accordingly, the employer did not violate the collective agreement when it paid the higher allowance to them – as the grievors were Group B employees, they were not entitled to receive the higher amount under the relevant provisions of the collective agreement applicable to them.
