After weeks of meeting, I reached out to Claude Brule, and suggested that the Local lend its expertise in dealing with data to assist the college in identifying and correcting problems.
The Local and the college have committed to working together to address a number of serious issues that have come to light because of the problems with Workday.
David Haley (1st VP), JP Lamarche (Chief Steward), and the Local’s office administrator, Diane Brule, will be working closely with their college counterparts to assess and correct problems with data that affects employee classification, sick leave, union dues, pension, benefits, partial-load registry, seniority, and eligibility for job competitions.
Correct data is especially important for full-time members of the bargaining unit in terms of program costing, and employment stability issues at the College Employment Stability Committee (CESC).
We’re hopeful that this collaboration will help in identifying existing errors, and preventing future errors from occurring. I’ll update you as the process progresses.
President, Local 415
