PM #40065782 Labour Reporter Canadian June 17, 2019 Manufacturing worker fired after hitting partner in throat AN OPERATOR at an automo- tive suspension production plant in Chatham, Ont., was terminat- ed after he hit a colleague in the throat during a tense conversa- tion. Dan Erdie had been employed by MSSC Canada since 2010 when during a midnight shift on June 25, 2018, he was paired with Mike Broadbent, set-up operator, on the stabilizer bar line. The two had previously worked together on the line but Denial of premium pay for supervising grieved by Tisdale, Sask., co-op employees WHEN certain clerks at a Beeland Cooperative store in Tisdale, Sask., worked alone without a manager on duty, they were paid a premium. But according to the collective agreement, only those workers designated as "clerk one" received the $1-per-hour premium, not "clerk two" em- ployees. The union, the Retail, Wholesale, and Depart- ment Store Union (RWDSU), Local 496, filed a grievance against the practice. Trinity Tyacke, a clerk two at the location known as a C-store (providing convenience store and gas bar services), often did supervisory duties during her regular shifts, she testified. As part of her frequent duties, Tyacke opened the store at 5:15 a.m. Tyacke regularly shut off the alarm system, removed cash from the safe and counted the float, started the food and coffee preparation and arranged for shift relief if another employee phoned in sick.
