PN SPAD Dispute
On Tuesday 5 February Pacific National issued a company wide Category A notice regarding SPAD prevention.
The Cat A notice has been issued without any consultation and leans heavily on disciplinary action in situations which Members are not able to control.
Understandably, Members are very concerned about this heavy-handed approach especially given there was no consultation. Management has also failed to provide answers to the many questions arising from the notice.
That’s why the RTBU National Office has written to Pacific National and put the following in dispute:
- failure to consult with employees and the Union on this significant change
- misleading employees into believing they are required to sign this alert, otherwise they will not be allowed to do their jobs.
RTBU Members take SPADS very seriously. Members always do their utmost to avoid them. They are more than willing to work with PN to mitigate the risk. However, they will not accept a knee-jerk position forced upon them.
Stay tuned for more updates.
