Letter of Understanding (12-06)

In respect to Hours of Work at FMF CB in the

Ship Repair Group
(all employees located on the West Coast)

Reference: Article 16, Hours of Work and Overtime

This letter refers to discussions between the parties with respect to Hours of Work; in particular, Alternate Work Schedule and Flex Time.

The Employer and the Council both recognize the requirement to maximize the efficiency of the workforce while considering the employees' desire to have some flexibility in Hours of Work. It is agreed that the Council and FMF CB management will collaborate to develop and implement Alternate Work Schedule and Flex Time schemes where significant operational advantages may be achieved. It should be stressed that only in those instances where the parties have reached mutual agreement to trial such concepts, will work be scheduled outside of the hours, as defined in clauses 16.01 and 16.02, while maintaining Saturday and Sunday as days of rest.

Detailed guidelines and conceptual information related to the trial of these two initiatives will be drafted as an FMF SOP developed in cooperation between the Council and FMF CB management. Details of the SOP may be reviewed at any time over the duration of the Collective Agreement in order to improve the trial as necessary. The parties also acknowledge the requirement to discuss the preferred way ahead for implementation of this LOU and associated SOPs beyond the life of this Collective Agreement. The parties also acknowledge that the outcome of these consultations may result in the re-opening of the Collective Agreement subject to the provisions of Article 23.01.

This Letter of Understanding will expire on January 30, 2015.


Letter of Understanding (12-07)

Re: Ship Repair Group

It is therefore agreed that both parties will periodically meet to discuss improvements in production processes and innovations aimed at achieving optimum productivity.

This Letter of Understanding will expire on January 30, 2015.
