Other Business

  • YQX

  • CATCA removed non-op status from their members working in the schools

  • OTS would like a similar consideration

  • CATCA produced a FAQ document (see attached)

  • Students getting double time on Fridays? On training allowance is there overtime provisions?

  • Advantages of OTS being operational:

  • LIEU days

  • Paid lunch

  • May be an opportunity to clear up a few grievances with respect to evening shift work

  • YYZ

  • People haven’t really made a connection with the idea that CATCA school staff are now operational and therefore it hasn’t been a topic of discussion

  • See this as an opportunity to perhaps tie together evenings, job descriptions and classification?

  • People won’t want to be “operational” if it means losing their evening shift premium-unless that is somehow recognized

  • Many OTS seem unaware that by the CA they are day workers and that there is a cap on the evening shift premium

  • SID/STAR training for about 80% of control staff rolling out in February

  • YWG

  • Haven’t talked to OTS group recently, expect there will be concern over the new CATCA agreement

  • YEG

  • Remind OTS that being operational may also include midnights and weekend work at regular pay with small premiums

  • Want recognition through classification for ATOS working single stand
