CRPEG Bulletin (2017 January 24): Memorandum of Understanding for a 4×10 Shift

As everyone is probably well aware by now, there are work groups on site that have implemented a 4×10 schedule for work. With no contract language to administer this type of schedule we have been using our existing language. On 2016 December 22 the executive signed a memorandum of understanding with the company to better manage this new schedule.

From the feedback surrounding this topic, the Executive understand that there are members who look forward to a 4×10 schedule and those who have concerns about it so we’d like to highlight the following points from the agreement;

  • This MOU is for Facilities Decommissioning, Waste Management and Environmental Remediation and Waste Operations currently. Any other departments or branches shall be discussed and agreed by the Union before implementing
  • For the term of the MOU, only those that volunteer to work a 4×10 schedule will do so
  • Hours of work are 7-5:30 with a 30 minute unpaid lunch Monday to Thursday
  • Vacation leave has been converted to hours
  • Other than marriage leave for other leave plans a day refers to a 10 h day
  • To convert the annual hours to 2080h/year (work week is now 40 h not 37.5) employees basic salary is increased by 6.67% to the nearest $100.
  • Employees working under this MOU will have their salary range adjusted to allow for the 6.67% increase so that no promotions or progressions will occur as a result of the conversion to a 40 h week.

We’d recommend everyone review the MOU. Certainly if this affects you directly, read it carefully and please contact the executive or a steward if you have any questions.
