PM #40065782 Labour Reporter Canadian November 19, 2018 Sawmill labourer fired after failure to lock out lumber equipment DURING A LUMBER mill shut- down, a labourer sticker picker was advised to clean his area but he neglected to follow a Plaster Rock, N.B., employer's procedure and lock out his equipment.

Jerry Burnett worked at a North Battleford, Sask., store since he was first hired as a student in 1977. He became a full-time worker on June 23, 1980, after he graduated from high school. Even- tually, Burnett became produce manager.

However, when Bur- nett brought this up with the employer, he was told that student service time did not count to- ward vacation entitlement. Burnett didn't pursue the issue any further, fig- uring there was nothing more he could do. But in 2001, co-op management told Burnett that he would be receiving an award recognizing SENIOR CARE Intercare Corporate Group Calgary (943 nurses, clerks, assistants, cooks, aides, maintenance employees) and the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), Local 8 Renewal agreement: Effective July 1, 2018, to June 30, 2020.
