The successful candidate is covered for the duration of the appointment by the collective agreement in which the position is located and carries with him his acquired seniority and his service account. As soon as the representation vote has been taken and your representative union has been declared, agreements for the negotiation of a new collective agreement for all unionized employees of Alectra (the Alectra Bargaining Unit) will begin from St. Catherine to Barrie. Pending the ratification of a new collective agreement, the five existing collective agreements with the three unions continue to apply to the five existing collective units. The PWU will communicate all subsequent developments as soon as they appear. Until the parties mutually agree on something else, all vacancies can be made available to the bargaining unit, whether temporary or permanent: Alectra has agreed to provide space on the company site and time for employees to meet separately with each of the unions in order to gather important information that helps the staff, understand the options. Every effort should be made to ensure that such meetings cause the least possible disrupt to the work programmes.
