PM #40065782 Labour Reporter Canadian April 1, 2019 Two hydro workers grieve when overtime premium pay denied WHEN Newfoundland and Lab- rador Hydro wanted to complete work reclaiming spent oil from an electrical transformer, the special project required a new 24-hour schedule. "Due to operational require- ments, the company requires a 24-hour shift schedule starting 8 a.m., Thursday, March 17, 2016. The 24-hour schedule is antici- pated to last approximately six to seven work days pending any unforeseen circumstances (in- cluding Saturday and Sunday)," said supervisor Reg Day in a Calgary truck driver fired after he viewed sexual images on lunch-room computer DURING a night shift at the Calgary freight depot for Purolator, a line-haul truck driver was seen publicly viewing sexually explicit images on a computer. On Feb. 7, 2018, Darrell Trainor was in the lunch room during a break. When two other employees walked into the room, they saw the images as Trainor was viewing them. Nick Caron and Keith Raymond testified they saw Trainor looking at the images, but the brows- er window was quickly minimized after they walked into the room. Trainor quietly said an ex- pletive as he closed the windows on the screen, said Caron. After all three employees left the lunch room, Caron returned and maximized the browser win- dow. He saw the images were still there and he took a picture of the screen with his phone. Caron then texted the image to Dave Koczkur, terminal manager. GOVERNMENT Town of Westlock Westlock, Alta.
