It`s not really a radiant compensation package. Talk to our city council about how enmax leaders earn their 10% pay raise (for a total of several million) for doing a great job over the past year. These comments have not aged well, especially with Enmax`s lower dividends being paid to the city. If, as you said, there are no such significant cost savings, you must take into account that the same money for Enmax is the same money. As a contractor, you can earn more, but you have to bank for sick days and WCBs and adapt to the services they provide as selective services instead of mandatory salary cuts. Not all companies are unionized, so it makes no sense to say that we would go to the 3rd standards. And we also don`t know the full background story.
Was the union asked for concessions before the layoffs? For some people, no matter how unpleasant they may be to benefit from a pay cut, they may still prefer to have a job with social benefits rather than a job at all. But for a union, it would be almost impossible to accept such concessions. I agree that they might have productivity/work issues with some employees, and some are great collaborators. The same goes for non-union work, many people come somewhere because they lick their butts, others work hard and never go anywhere, life is unfair, no matter what, but at least the unions keep an eye on the ground. Yes, they will fight this to the end, because of the priority it sends. From my point of view, they have to challenge that, or it will be the beginning of the end of the unions in Calgary. The union, which represents dozens of workers who last week received pink notes from the city`s Enmax, has filed a complaint that proposes the distribution company cut union jobs while retaining contract workers. . .
