A union rep told us last week that management wouldn't be using any more casuals(temporary workers)instead fulltime staff in our section. Supposedly, the staffing problem had been resolved.
Well, what do you know? The place has been flooded by casuals every day since then. Bottom line, the staffing problem hasn't been solved.
Fulltime jobs are still be done by temps. This is hard to stomach. The volumes of mail has increased dramatically in our section over the last year, but there's been problems in handling it with our present staffing level.
This should translate into more fulltime fulltime jobs on our day staff, but it hasn't. I've been working with the local CUPW president on this situation. Where's the common sense in all of this? I don't see it.
