CRPEG Bulletin: Update on the Canada Industrial Relations Board Hearing On The Maintenance of Services Agreement

On Friday, PIPSC received the ruling of the Canada Industrial Relation Board (CIRB) on the issue of moly-99 production being an essential service.  The decision of the panel is that the production of moly-99 is no longer an essential service at CNL.  With that issue resolved, CRPEG and the employer will meet to reach agreement on the Maintenance of Services Agreement (MSA) within the next two weeks.

CRPEG Bulletin: Update on CIRB hearing on the MSA

Tuesday (April 7th) concluded the Canada Industrial Relation Board (CIRB) hearing on essential services, with the Company and PIPSC lawyers presenting their concluding arguments.  In her closing remarks, the Chair of the CIRB panel acknowledged the need for an expedited ruling on this matter, andwill endeavour to try to bring us a decision by the end of April.

CRPEG expects to be able to reach agreement on the Maintenance of Services Agreement (MSA) shortly after the CIRB has declared its ruling.  We have already begun discussions with the Company to schedule dates at the beginning of May to resolve the MSA, in anticipation of the CIRB ruling in April.

CRPEG Bulletin (2014 November 19): CRPEG Presentations to the House of Commons Natural Resources Committee and Senate Committe on Energy and the Environment

Yesterday, Vince and I attended House of Commons Natural Resources Committee meeting on the subject matter of clauses 376 to 381 of Bill C-43, A second Act to implement certain provisions of the budget tabled in Parliament on February 11, 2014 and other measures (Division 29). The link to the audio recording can be found here: http://parlvu.parl.gc.ca/parlvu/ContentEntityDetailView.aspx?contententityid=12277&date=20141118&lang=en

We also attended The Senate Committee on Energy and the Environment, also on Division 29 of Bill C-43. The link to the audio recording can be found here: http://senparlvu.parl.gc.ca/Guide.aspx?viewmode=4&categoryid=-1&currentdate=2014-11-18&languagecode=12298&eventid=12278

Attached are my speaking notes.

We want to see a seamless and successful transition of Canadian Nuclear Laboratories. By including the new hires post share transfer in the PSSA 3-year transitional coverage, it keeps all employees on a level playing field, and will afford us the best opportunity to negotiate a pension plan to the satisfaction of everyone.
