Every collective agreement has language to guide workplace promotions. However, promotional language can fall into a number of categories: relative ability clauses, sufficient ability clauses, and hybrid clauses. Each category places different emphasis on merit and seniority. In addition, the words used in the collective agreement to describe merit, such as “ability”, have received considerable attention from arbitrators and further outline the criteria that an employer can or must assess when conducting a competition. This course will help you to decide which model makes sense for your collective agreement and how to apply your promotional language. It will also work through a case study on a non-selection grievance to learn how to make your case for one or more grievors who didn’t get the job.
