We are still working with Canada Post on the Article 35.08 review, as it is still not complete. While monitoring the review, it has come to our attention that some errors occurred when supervisors were inputting acting assignments as they were inputting these as promotions. This would have a negative impact for our members as it would change the members anniversary date for the annual pay increment and may wrongfully create an overpayment situation.
The rule for acting assignments is as follows: “A regular employee can act in a function having a higher maximum rate of pay for a temporary period. In these cases, the promotion calculation is used to determine the acting rate of pay. In the case of acting promotions, the anniversary date of the employee does not change.”
