SMSM Grievances Update

Some of the files from the four thousand five hundred Service Management Structural Model “SMSM” job description (JD) grievances at ESDC are moving on slowly, very slowly. Here are the details on the few files that have moved:

There are some commonalities with the responses from the adjudicators. The main one is that despite the evidence before them, the adjudicators felt that the employer provided the grievors involved in these group grievances with a complete and current statement of their duties and responsibilities.

It should be noted that going before the PSLREB for any JD grievances take a large amount of time and effort, but does not give to the grievors the expected results in the majority of the cases.

At the PSLREB, there is no other SMSM JD grievance hearing scheduled for the next 6 months. Neither CEIU nor PSAC has any control on the PSLREB hearing schedule.

Here is a recap of the current situation with all these job description grievances:

Grievances denied that have been transmitted to the PSLREB

Grievances allowed

Grievances partially allowed

Grievances withdrawn

Grievance denied at PSLRB

Revised JD in November 2013 leading to new JD and classification grievances

Revised JD in March 2016
