Re:       Enhanced VRTIP and Next Steps

Friday was the last day for employees in TEAM’s bargaining unit to submit applications to be considered for departure from Bell MTS under the June/July Enhanced Voluntary Retirement Termination Incentive Program (EVRTIP). The following provides an outline of what happens next:

                 -  My position is targeted - I have applied

                 -  My position is not targeted - I have applied

Article 27.04.1: “where incumbents are deemed by the Company to be relatively equal on the basis of skill, ability, performance and qualifications, the junior incumbent, according to Net Credited Service (NCS) date, shall be laid off first.”

          -  My position is targeted – Additional Info

Members who feel they have been unfairly selected for layoff are advised to contact the TEAM office without delay to discuss their concerns.
