We have 12 full timers and two part timers (casuals). I am the 10% guy thats not guaranteed 8 or forty. The contract says that 90% of the full time employees are are guaranteed 8 per day when put to work and the work week being forty. The contract says that the casuals will be guaranteed 4 hours per day when put to work and givien 24 hr prior notice to cancell a days work. As you can see, there is not one reference made to the remaining 10 % of full time employee. I worked for the state int the permit and contract dept and i dealt with 5-6 contracts at one time and in contract 101, if its' not in the contract then it doesn't exist. this is my problem. I asked my steward the simple question of my placement concerning the casuals when it came to scheduling. I have already been through the contract multiple times and as i said before, there is no refernce of the remaining 10%. This was his response" They can work a casual as long as h doesn't work more than you." When i asked to be shown that part of the contract, of course he fumbled around and couldn't produce. I don't know about you guys but i pay around 60.00 a month for this contract and that's what i'm going to live by. and i expect to be represented . it very clear that there was a mistake in the wording and it needs to be resolved because i know that i am not the only ten percenter and acording to the contract, we are not guaranteed anything when it comes to hours and scheduling. "Hear what i'm saying"!. When a senior guy wanted to come to the dock because his position wasn't guaranteed, he bumped me off the dock. Now when i want to exercise my bumping power, i have to share hours with a casual. THAT'S CRAP!. THEY DONT SHARE MY UNION DUES. THEN THEY DONT SHARE MY HOURS!
