A Message from Brendan

A Message from Brendan

To: All Local 4304 Members at Grand River Transit

Just so we are all clear. The King and Victoria queue jump lane turn is going active on Monday. The union opposes this turn and have stated this to management. I don’t feel it’s necessary in any way. However my feelings have not changed managements mind or opened it to other options. I disagree with their lack of communication to the public as the awareness campaign only started this morning. I recommended this be pushed until the winter signup and again that was denied. I spoke to the assistant director and he has stated they will proceed with it. So please take as much time as needed to make this turn safely. The union as not signed off on this in any way.

Yours In Solidarity,
Brendan Burke
President

UNFINISHED BUSINESS

Monthly Cell Phone Allowance for all Stewards.

Discussion held concerning why the Recording and Financial Secretary both receive a cell phone allowance while the stewards don’t. The President had mentioned that he is in constant contact with both secretaries when certain information is needed. The concern was that the stewards who receive many phone calls or texts from members should be allowed an allowance as opposed to the Recording and Financial Secretary. Some previous stewards had mentioned that when they were stewards they never received an allowance as this was part of the position. The other mention was the cost to the membership would be roughly $2,000 a month for the cell phone allowances.

MOTION: To assign a monthly cell phone allowance for all stewards.
MOVED BY: Barb Newman
SECONDED BY: Norma O’Neill
MOTION TABLED

Move the time of the evening meeting to either 6:30 p.m. or 7:00 p.m.

Discussion held regarding moving the time of the evening meeting ahead by half an hour so that operators who attend the evening meeting that start early in the morning can still attend and have plenty of rest before waking up early to get ready for their shift. It was mentioned that the times were changed a few times to accommodate operators working a split shift and finishing by 6:30 – 6:45 so that they were able to get home in time to attend the evening meeting on zoom or in person at the hall. Some members mentioned that the current time is reasonable for everyone and that with the meetings being one day a month, it was one sacrifice that can be made by the operators who start early in the morning.

MOTION: To move the time of the evening meeting to 7:00 p.m.
