As you are aware the new federal regulations for rest provisions come into effect on May 25th.
Despite direction from the regulator, CP will only commit to applying the resets as per their bulletin and making their best efforts to have Reset Breaks at the Home Terminal.
The Company’s plan to adjust or add “regulatory rest” to our members in an unannounced fashion, up to 2200 on the second day an employee is in and has not gone to work, is not scheduled and we oppose it. We recognize that adding any rest to an employee in this manner means the Reset Break will be random and unscheduled. This type of unannounced application of rest is not a scheduled break and is not consistent with fatigue management. We maintain, the Reset Break, to have any real value, needs to be scheduled at the Home Terminal.
