The Canada Industrial Relations Board has just issued to the CBC the obligation to post an application from the CSN union in the French Network to claim a large majority of jobs occupied by APS members. Filed on March 22, 2018, the application is aimed at the French Network and it comes from the SCRC (FNC-CSN) the union now representing the majority of unionized workers in the French Network as the result of the unification process similar to the one undertaken in the English Network many years ago. More precisely the claim is aimed at all APS members who are not Supervisors or holders of diplomas at the Master’s level or higher. In French, the words of the CSN claim, target members holding Bachelor’s degrees or lower level diplomas).  The Notice To Employees will, therefore, be posted in the French Network locations available for consultation by CBC employees.

This new claim is a first as it targets more employees than previous attempts made by other unions in the past. It was in the year 2000 that the very first such claim was filed against members of APS by another union. We have been successful in preserving the composition of or bargaining unit for more than 18 years now despite numerous claims coming from the English Network as well as from the French Network.

APS is committed to defending the integrity of its bargaining unit and it will continue to do so successfully as it has been doing for the past 18 years. It was founded by CBC employees and will continue to defend the values that belong to them.
