12
ARTICLE 14 GRIEVANCE AND ARBITRATION PROCESS
14.01
It is the mutual desire of the PARTIES that any issue arising out of the
interpretation, application or alleged violation of the AGREEMENT, including those
related to discipline, shall be adjusted, without strike, lockout or slowdown of
WORK, as quickly as possible in accordance with the procedure outlined below.
For the purpose of this Article, working days means those scheduled days of work
for the affected worker or workers.
Any worker, assisted by his/her Steward, and Site Representative, if he/she so
desires, may present an issue to the immediate Supervisor within five (5) working
days after the circumstances giving rise to the issue have occurred or within five
(5) working days of the worker becoming aware of the circumstances. The
Supervisor may be assisted by the appropriate ASSOCIATION’s Site
Representative, if he/she so desires.
The immediate Supervisor will render a decision within one (1) working day.
Decisions are rendered solely for the purpose of resolving the issue and shall not
be considered as binding in any other disputes.
STEP 1: Any worker, assisted by his/her Steward, and Site Representative, if he/she so
desires, may present an issue in writing to his/her immediate Supervisor within
five (5) working days after the circumstances giving rise to the issue have occurred
or originated or within five (5) working days of the worker becoming aware of the
circumstances. The issue shall state the alleged violation and indicate the Article
or Articles of the AGREEMENT, which it is alleged are being violated and the
remedy sought. The Supervisor will render his/her decision, in writing, within five
(5) working days of being presented with the issue. The Supervisor may be
assisted by the appropriate ASSOCIATION’s Site Representative, if he/she so
desires.
STEP 2: Should the issue be unresolved, the worker, assisted by his/her Steward, if he/she
so desires and the appropriate COUNCIL OF UNIONS’ Site Representative as
designated in Article 10.02, shall submit the matter, in writing, within a further four
(4) working days to the CONTRACTOR and the appropriate ASSOCIATION’s Site
Representative. The issue shall state the alleged violation and indicate the Article
or Articles of the AGREEMENT, which it is alleged are being violated and the
remedy sought. The CONTRACTOR will render a decision, in writing, within four
(4) working days of receiving written notification.
STEP 3: If unresolved at Step 2, as a final attempt to resolve the issue, the appropriate
ASSOCIATION’s Site Representative(s) shall meet with the COUNCIL OF
UNIONS’ Site Representative(s) within four (4) working days. If no resolution can
be achieved within four (4) working days, the matter may be referred to arbitration
in accordance with the procedure contained herein.
14.02
a) In case of suspension or discharge, an issue may be initiated at Step 3.
13
b) The PARTIES agree that any issue, which has not been settled, may be
referred to mediation by mutual consent.
Use of mediation shall not limit the right of the PARTIES to use the Grievance
Procedure. The PARTIES agree that, failing a mutual and timely mediated
resolution, either PARTY may proceed to utilize the grievance provisions under
this Article. Either PARTY may terminate, in writing, the mediation process at
any time and proceed directly to Step 3 of the Grievance Procedure.
Should a PARTY wish to mediate an issue, it must advise the other PARTY, in
writing, of its desire to do so. Both PARTIES must mutually agree upon a
neutral third person, who will assist the ASSOCIATION and the COUNCIL OF
UNIONS to discuss the issue and reach a resolution in a mutually acceptable
manner. When mediation results in a mutual resolution of the grievance, the
PARTIES will sign a Mediation Agreement. If the PARTIES have identified an
issue is not appropriate for mediation, either party may continue with the
grievance process.
A mediated settlement, which resolves the issue, shall not be considered as
binding in any other disputes.
A Mediator, appointed under this Article, shall not be used as the Arbitrator in
the same matter.
14.03
a) It is understood that the ASSOCIATION may file an issue, in writing, with the
COUNCIL OF UNIONS commencing at step 3 and if the issue is not
successfully resolved within four (4) working days, it may be referred to
arbitration.
b) It is understood that the COUNCIL OF UNIONS may file an issue, in writing,
with the ASSOCIATION commencing at step 3 and if the issue is not
successfully resolved within four (4) working days, it may be referred to
arbitration.
14.04
Any referral to arbitration will be made within two (2) working days of the final
decision of Article 14.01, Step 3. The Arbitrator will be appointed as follows:
The Arbitrator shall be selected in rotation from a panel of five (5) Arbitrators,
acceptable to the PARTIES, which is attached as Exhibit A, forming part of this
AGREEMENT. The panel shall be updated by the PARTIES once each year

EXHIBIT B
JURISDICTION DISPUTES RESOLUTION PLAN
DEFINITIONS
In this Agreement:
“Agreements between Unions”. There are three types of Agreements – Agreements of
Record, Attested Agreements and Non Attested Agreements. These Agreements are not
binding on other crafts not signatory to the Agreements and, insofar as the Impartial
Jurisdictional Disputes Board is concerned, they do not affect the claims or rights of work
jurisdiction of Unions not parties to the Agreement.
“Agreements of Record”are those Agreements between Building Trades Unions which
have been recorded with the Impartial Jurisdictional Disputes Board and are binding on the
signatory Unions. These are the only Agreements contained in the “Green Book”.
“Attested Agreements”are those Agreements signed by the General Presidents of two
International Unions and attested to by the Impartial Jurisdictional Disputes Board. These
Agreements have the same status as an Agreement of Record.
“Decision of Umpire”means the decision of work assignment made by the Umpire.
“Decisions of Record”are those which appear in the publication commonly referred to as
the “Green Book” published and approved by the Building and Construction Trades
Department, AFL-CIO, (current issue), and are international or national in scope. They are
applicable to all trades even though a dispute which resulted in a Decision of Record may
originally have involved only two trades. They are not to be confused with job decisions
rendered by the Impartial Jurisdictional Disputes Board which apply only to the job decisions.
However, the Impartial Jurisdictional Disputes Board is required to give due consideration to
Decisions of Record in arriving at job decisions. Decisions of Record in the “Green Book” do
not appear in chronological order and are always referred to by dates.
“Impartial Jurisdictional Disputes Board”means the Impartial Jurisdictional Disputes
Board in Washington, D.C., the International Appeal board, the International Plan for the
Settlement of Jurisdictional Disputes in the Construction Industry (approved June, 1984, as
amended December 2008), or its successor.
“Intended Work Assignment”means the initial step wherein the CONTRACTOR declares
his/her intention to assign certain work to a certain trade(s).
“Jurisdictional Dispute”means dispute between Unions and/or Unions and a
CONTRACTOR over the assignment of work, or a difference between two or more UNIONS
as to which trade or which workmen will do certain work which must be grounded and be
founded upon the scope or claimed jurisdiction as set forth in the International Constitution
applicable to the Claimant(s).
“Non Attested Agreements”are those which have not been filed with the Impartial
Jurisdictional Disputes Board, nor attested by the Chairman of the Impartial Jurisdictional
Disputes Board.
“Participating Contractor”means a CONTRACTOR working under the terms and
conditions of this AGREEMENT.
44
“Participating UNIONS”means a UNION which is a member of the COUNCIL OF UNIONS.
“Prevailing Practice”is the practice of that craft which submits valid evidence indicating that
its members have performed more of the work in the area where the dispute exists than have
members of other crafts. The area, for the purpose of determining the Prevailing Practice,
shall be defined ordinarily to mean the geographical jurisdiction of the Province of
Newfoundland and Labrador.
“Specific Work Assignment”means the assignment of work as determined by the Umpire.
The “intended work assignment” shall be considered the specific assignment where the
assignment remains unchallenged before the Umpire.
“Umpire” means the Jurisdictional Umpire appointed pursuant to Article 19:00 of this
AGREEMENT.
ARTICLE II PROCEDURES TO BE USED BY THE UMPIRE
1.
Decisions of Record and Agreements of Record established by or recorded by the
Impartial Jurisdictional Disputes Board, established international trade practice,
prevailing practice as defined, together with a reasonable acceptance of
considerations for efficiency and capacity to furnish construction services to the public
at reasonable cost, shall be accepted by the Umpire as factors in assigning WORK
(see Article 2.2(b) of the Procedural Rules).
2.
Decisions on Assignment of WORK (Reference Article 19.00) – When the Umpire has
received a protest of WORK assignment from the COUNCIL OF UNIONS or for a
request for a decision from the ASSOCIATION, he/she shall proceed to make a
decision as outlined below:
i.
Any request for a decision shall contain the following information:
Name and address of the CONTRACTOR.
Disputing trades.
The assignment of WORK made by the CONTRACTOR.
A full and detailed description of the disputed WORK.
When the request is made by the Union, it shall also state the basis of its claim
for the WORK.
ii.
All requests for services of an Umpire shall be made to the RDC Office at 78
Brookfield Road, St. John's, NL.
iii.
The COUNCIL OF UNIONS shall file a copy of each request for a decision with
the ASSOCIATION, the affected CONTRACTORS, the Umpire and all of the
Local Unions involved in the dispute.
iv.
When notice of a request for a decision has been sent to a UNION directly
affected, the UNION shall be allowed twenty-four (24) hours (except as
provided below) in which to state its position to the Umpire. The UNION shall
be notified of this period at the same time it is sent notice of the request for a
decision.
45
v.
Where a request for a decision has been filed with the Umpire by the COUNCIL
OF UNIONS, the ASSOCIATION shall be requested to furnish a full description
of the disputed WORK.
vi.
Where two UNIONS have established procedures for the adjustment of
jurisdictional disputes without resorting to the procedures set out herein, they
shall be allowed a reasonable length of time as determined by the Umpire in
which to effect a settlement. If the UNIONS are unable to reach agreement,
they shall jointly render a statement of facts of the dispute to the Umpire for a
decision.
vii.
When the Umpire has decided to process a dispute in accordance with the
provisions of Article 19, the UNIONS involved shall be notified and allowed five
(5) working days from receipt of the notice in which to submit evidence. The
UNIONS shall be notified by registered mail, courier, or facsimile of this period
in each case processed.
The notice must also include a clear definition of the dispute on which evidence
is to be secured, and the locality from which evidence will be received which
shall be the same for both trades and shall be the Province of Newfoundland
and Labrador. The Umpire will consider only evidence which identifies projects
within the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador and the CONTRACTOR on
the project. It is desirable wherever possible for the evidence to show the year
the WORK was performed and the amount of WORK involved.
viii.
If the Umpire finds that the dispute is not covered by an appropriate or
applicable Decision or Agreement of Record, he/she shall render a decision in
which he/she shall consider the established international trade practice or the
prevailing practice in the Province of Newfoundland and Labrador, and the
decision shall be effective for the duration of the Project.
ix.
The COUNCIL OF UNIONS and the ASSOCIATION shall ensure that their
members promptly comply with each decision of the Umpire.
x.
If, during the course of consideration of a dispute, the Umpire should decide
that there is a substantial and material question of fact which cannot be
resolved on the basis of the available evidence, the Umpire shall temporarily
suspend the deliberation and make the investigation as he/she deems
necessary to avail himself of all facts and evidence bearing on the dispute.
xi.
If, during the course of consideration of a dispute, any PARTY to the dispute or
the Umpire should decide that there is a substantial and material question of
technological change attendant to a dispute which cannot be resolved on the
basis of available evidence, the Umpire shall temporarily suspend the
deliberations and make any investigation as he/she deems necessary to avail
himself of all facts and evidence bearing on the dispute and shall in any event
make a decision prior to the scheduled commencement of WORK.
xii.
In addition to all other requirements in these Rules and Regulations with respect
to the form of a decision rendered by the Umpire, it is also required that any
decision shall include a brief statement of the description of the WORK in
46
dispute and the conclusions of the Umpire with respect to the principal material
issues which are involved in the dispute. The Umpire’s written decision shall be
as brief and concise as possible.
xiii.
In keeping with the expressed intent of the PARTIES to address jurisdictional
matters in a timely, efficient and cost effective manner, the hearing may be
conducted by electronic audio/visual means.
xiv.
Each PARTY to the jurisdictional dispute shall pay its own expenses. The fees
and expenses for the Umpire shall be paid by the losing PARTY.
xv.
Unless and until it is re-assigned by the Umpire, WORK shall be performed in
accordance with the CONTRACTOR’S final mark up and the Contractor shall
have no liability in respect of WORK subsequently re-assigned.
ARTICLE III IMPLEMENTATION OF DECISIONS
Decisions as to jurisdiction claims and decisions determining whether or not the decisions
have been violated as rendered by the Umpire shall be binding, final and conclusive on all of
the parties agreeing to the operation of this Jurisdiction Dispute Resolution Plan, except as
otherwise provided in Article III.
To further implement the decision of the Umpire, any party, may, at any time, file a complaint
in writing with the Umpire alleging a violation of a decision previously made. The Umpire

respect to the alleged violation and shall notify, by registered mail, all interested parties of the
time and place thereof. The Umpire shall conduct a hearing at the time and place specified in
this notice. All parties shall be given an opportunity to testify and present documentary
evidence relating to the said matter of the hearing within forty-eight (48) hours after the
conclusion thereof. The Umpire shall render a written decision in the matter and shall state
whether or not there has been a violation of his/her prior decision. Copies of the decision
shall be mailed by registered mail to all parties thereto.
Should the Umpire determine that there has been a violation of his/her decision, he/she shall
order immediate compliance by the offending party or parties.
The Umpire shall take the following action to enforce compliance with his/her decision
including a directive to make a specific assignment of work.
a)
He/she shall levy a fine of $50.00 to $250.00 per day for each violation against the
offender, i.e. Contractor and/or Union, represented by the parties hereto. The fine shall
be paid to the COUNCIL OF UNIONS and submitted to the affected Union or Unions
consistent with the decision of the Umpire. Should a member of either party to this
AGREEMENT fail to pay the amount levied within fifteen (15) days, he/she shall be
deprived of all benefits of the Umpire until the time as the matter is adjusted to the
satisfaction of the Umpire.
b)
He/she shall file an application in any court of competent jurisdiction to have his/her

d)
The Umpire shall determine the losing party in each case. If the CONTRACTOR or
ASSOCIATION’s final assignment is changed by the umpire, the CONTRACTOR or
ASSOCIATION (whichever party made the assignment) AND the assigned trade are the
losing parties, and they shall equally share the umpires fees and expenses. If the
CONTRACTOR or ASSOCIATION’S final assignment is not changed by the Umpire, the
claiming trades shall pay the umpire’s fees and expenses.
ARTICLE IV RECOURSE
Any party or person bound by a decision of the Umpire may apply for a jurisdictional award to
the Impartial Jurisdictional Disputes board, or its successor, created by the Building and
Construction Trades Department, AFL-CIO, and the person or party shall be bound by all of
the Procedural Rules and Regulations of the said Impartial Jurisdictional Disputes Board, or
its successor, so far as may be applicable, and shall be bound by any decision of the said
Impartial Jurisdictional Disputes Board, or its successor, (including any decision of the
International Appeal Board provided therein) as if the decision were a decision of the Umpire
referred to in Article I.
