MOU IX Job Evaluation and Pay Grid Revision Committee**

(a) Additional Funding

In the April 1, 2000 to March 31, 2001 budget year, the Employer shall commit one-quarter of one percent (0.25%) of the then current annual regular employee unionized payroll (that is, the amount for regular employees pay only) for purposes of addressing inequities resulting from implementation of the job evaluation plan. This amount shall be

expended to change the base rate of affected jobs and shall not include the cost of changes to wage dependent benefits resulting from such basic pay increases.

 

(b) Joint Technical Committee on Job Evaluation and Pay Grid Revision

Within three months of (the date of Union ratification), the parties shall form a joint technical working committee on job evaluation and pay grid revision comprising of up to four (4) technical experts appointed by each side. The committee shall make decisions by consensus, shall develop its own methods of proceeding, and shall meet in accordance with clause 2.11. The committee’s mandate is to develop recommendations regarding amendments to the salary grid and, if necessary, other aspects of the Licensed and Unlicensed Job Evaluation Plans. These recommendations shall, if possible, be presented to the parties for their ratification during the term of the current Collective Agreement. No change shall be made to the salary grids of the Job Evaluation Plans unless they are ratified by both parties. Without limiting the scope of the committee’s work, the committee shall endeavour to develop new, and more appropriate grade levels based upon the existing evaluated rates for each job. The committee shall determine, on a mutually agreeable basis, where to apply the additional funding set out in part (a) above. In this regard, the committee shall determine

which classifications are to receive a pay adjustment and the amount of any such adjustment, provided the total of all such adjustments does not exceed the allocated amount. Pay adjustments determined by the committee shall be effective the first pay period following April 1, 2000.

 

MOU X Vessel Designation Overlay**

The parties agree that the Vessel Designation Overlay agreed to by the parties will be applied to the current rates of pay for licensed employees. When applied to Ships’ Officers rates of pay for employees who work on Spirit Class Vessels or High Speed Craft, the base rates for Third Engineers shall be 10% higher than their counterparts on Large Vessels and 7% higher for all other Officers who work on Spirit Class Vessels or High Speed Craft. The amounts specified are

currently in effect and in applying the Vessel Designation Overlay to the Structured Job Based Rating Plan, the intent of the Memorandum is to retain the salary differential which currently applies to positions of Spirit Class Vessels and to apply the same differential to positions with similar classifications on fast ferries.

MOU XI No Layoffs**

(a) Notwithstanding clause 10.10 (a) and (c), and Article 12 of the Collective Agreement, the parties hereby agree that new layoffs and job relocations will be accomplished through attrition during the period from December 1, 1999 to October 31, 2000. On October 31, 2000, the parties agree to revert to the existing language in the Collective Agreement.
