CEP mailout to Campbell River

Last week CEP mailed a brochure to everyone in Campbell River, both residences and businesses.  This was in direct response to the efforts of Catalyst Paper to negatively influence the community against our members who work at the Catalyst Elk Falls mill.

We would like to know what you thought of the brochure so please take the time to answer this poll, and give us any other feedback you think pertinent.

If you haven’t seen the mailout, you can view it here.

Conflict between E/I and Vacation Pay in Advance

Many 630/1123 members took some or all of thier 2009 Vacation pay in advance.  Despite many being told it wouldn’t effect their E/I claim until the week(s) they actually took the vacation, now people are finding themselves cut off E/I immediately (for the number of weeks they took advanced pay for).

Seems E/I has a different interpretation than the Company does, which shouldn’t come as a huge suprize to anyone.

If you recieved holiday pay in advance and didn’t claim it on your E/I, expect them to claw the E/I back once they find out – and they will.  It may even be better to explain your mistake than have them rule that you were trying to defraud the system and put your whole claim in jeopardy.
