Basic Agreement
Letter 21: Combined Job Allowance

Item 21 - Combined Job Allowance



A special allowance will be paid for hours worked on a "Combined Job" where the nature of the combination and the job classification established for such "Combined Job" comply with the following agreed to parameters:

  1. Definition

    A "Combined Job" is one (1) which meets each of the following criteria:

    1. Two (2) or more job descriptions are combined into one (1) job description and classification, and the other job description(s) is terminated; and

    2. The primary duties of the terminated job(s) are incorporated into the duties of the new job description of the remaining job, and

    3. One (1) or more employees are permanently displaced from the job(s) being terminated as a direct result of the combining of the two (2) or more jobs, and

    4. The incorporation of the primary duties of the terminated job(s) results in a significant change in the job content of the remaining job.

  2. Rate of Pay

    1. Where the job classification of the new "Combined Job" is two (2) full job classes or more higher than the job classification of the job prior to such change, then the rate of pay for such new "Combined Job" shall be the job class of the new "Combined Job".

    2. Where the job classification of the new "Combined Job" is less than two (2) full job classes higher than the job classification of the job prior to such change, then the rate of pay for such new "Combined Job" shall be the job class of the new "Combined Job", and in addition, any employee occupying the new "Combined Job" will receive a "Combined Job" Allowance as follows:

      1. Where the job classification of the new "Combined Job" is one (1) job class higher than the original job, the "Combined Job" Allowance will be twenty-one (21) cents per hour worked.

      2. Where the job classification of the new "Combined Job" is equal to the job class of the original job, the "Combined Job" Allowance will be forty-two (42) cents per hour worked.

    3. This "Combined Job" Allowance shall be paid for all hours worked by an employee but shall not be increased by reason of having been earned in overtime. Hours not worked, even though compenªsated in accordance with a specific provision of the Agreement and deemed to be hours worked for other purposes, shall not be considered to be hours worked for the purpose of these provisions.

  3. Administration

    1. These provisions will not be applied to job combinations involving Assigned Maintenance, Trade and Craft or Special Progression occupations.

    2. These provisions will not be applied to new or substantially altered facilities such as the Casting facilities or #1 Bar Mill at Hilton Works.

It is agreed that this Letter of Agreement shall not be used as the basis of any claim that an existing job is a "Combined Job" and is eligible for a "Combined Job" Allowance.

The Company and the Union have agreed that a Joint Committee which shall include the Manager of Operations or his delegate and the Local Union President/Unit Chair or his delegate shall meet periodically at a mutually convenient date and time to discuss and review issues related to new or planned job combination.
