With the news of staff relocations at the Rolls-Royce plant and the uncertainty this may cause, the RRC Shop Committee would like to inform the members about Rolls-Royce Canada’s official harassment policy.

Brothers and sisters,
In 2015, the Company approached the Shop Committee with the intention of transferring an employee between two departments and subsequently transferring another employee to fill the position left by the original transfer. This is called a three-way transfer, or reverse transfer. The committee rejected the Company’s proposal.
During the last negotiations in 2016, this subject was again debated, and again rejected by the Bargaining Committee. Being an extremely important issue for our members, we were unable to reach an agreement with the Employer.
In February 2017, we had a CRT meeting with the Employer to open the collective agreement currently in effect to incorporate the three-way transfer. For the third time in a row, the addition of this clause to the agreement was refused.
Last Friday, a supervisor in the component repair section, with the approval of the human resources manager, made a three-way transfer even though the Shop Committee warned them that this was against the collective agreement in effect, as well as against past practices on the shop floor. We would have liked to have concluded this subject within the Working Relations Committee (CRT) with a letter of agreement, unfortunately we could not agree with the Employer.
Please be aware that on the Union side, measures and actions at our disposal will be taken to protect the collective agreement and past practices on the shop floor. We expect the Company to adhere to past practices that have been in place for many years.
We ask for your support and ask you to inform the Shop Committee or your Shop Steward if similar infractions are known to you.
The office of the Health and Safety
Representative has moved to serve you better.
If you have questions, problems or
suggestions for the prevention at work, do not hesitate to come at my office at
