Disputed Lay Off Steel Div.

As was reported on April 23 the Union has been informed by Evraz at the Informational Meeting held on April 29, 30 that the reason for the layoff on April 26, 27 ad 28 was to control inventory. The Union does not agree that the intent, spirit or language of Article 12.3 (Layoff because of Breakdown) supports controlling inventory. As such a group grievance for all the affected brothers and sisters in Steel division has been filed with Evraz. As more information becomes available it will be reported here.
