Final Decision on Class 5 Driver's Licenses Received

CSSEA informed the membership in late 2017 that it had filed an appeal to the Labour Relations Board (LRB) of an arbitration decision that ruled employers must pay the renewal fees of employees’ Class 5 driver’s licences when employers require employees to drive as part of their jobs. The LRB has dismissed our appeal, upholding Arbitrator Pekeles’ original decision. While CSSEA is very disappointed by the outcome, we acknowledge that the arbitration decision stands and must be fully implemented.

We encourage members who feel strongly about this or other issues to register for our Bargaining Consultation Sessions, which will be held around the province this spring. The sessions will provide employers with the opportunity to comment on the impact of this decision and whether they wish for us to propose changes to the collective agreement in the upcoming round of bargaining. Anyone with questions are asked to contact their HRLR Consultant.
