Unifor Local 848 chooses to facilitate the re-entry of a member who works “beyond the scope of the (collective) agreement” back into the brotherhood and sisterhood of the union. Our union contract affords our members a higher standard which is maintained from wages to benefits and working conditions. Unifor Local 848 requires that the member maintain their union dues for the time they are working “beyond the scope of the agreement.” Foregoing this requirement will affect member seniority and their status as a member of Unifor Local 848. Any overtime acquired (for any reason) during a time a member is working beyond the “scope of the agreement” must appear on the appropriate overtime list of the affected department. It is a further requirement that members who choose to work “beyond the scope of the agreement” will not be available for overtime that occurs within their former job scope, even though they may be qualified to do that particular work.
