PM #40065782 Labour Reporter Canadian October 15, 2018 Unifor grieves Bell Canada not allowing steward's presence WHEN BELL CANADA took over the operations of Bell Aliant in Atlantic Canada in 2014, the company changed the process for processing its short-term disabil- ity (STD) claims. The union, Unifor, grieved the changes on July 15, 2016, after hearing that some members were denied union representation dur- ing their claims process. Carlos Vicente, regional chief steward for the union's Saint John region, testified he had experience about four or five times in the past as a union representative when Vancouver hospital social worker's promotion quashed after post changed AFTER SHE WAS awarded a promotion, which was then promptly cancelled after the employer realized her qualifications were lacking, a Van- couver social worker grieved the decision. Salimah Damji, who worked at the Vancouver General Hospital, responded to a job posting on March 11, 2016, for a social-worker position in the T11 acute care elderly ward at the facility. The posting called for candidates to possess a "master of social work (MSW) from an accred- ited school of social work." However, on April 11, the post was changed and it requested candidates hold a "bachelor of social work (BSW)" instead. Leighanne MacKenzie, operations director for medicine at the hospital, sent an email to the HR department on April 15, just as she was about to leave for vacation. "I am fine if you leave the post- ing for BSW up. I will be away next week. Please award it to Salimah Damji with a start date of six weeks." SECURITY SERVICES Garda Security Screening London, Ont.
