Section 1
Clause A
The Company recognizes the Union as the duly certified sole
collective bargaining agent for all unlicensed personnel
specified herein employed in the Deck, Engineroom and
Stewards Departments of all ships heretofore owned and/or
operated by Northland Navigation Co. Ltd. or any ship or ships
replacing same and all such ships shall continue to be
manned by union personnel so long as such manning is
controlled by the Company. Between:
(hereinafter called the "Company")
(hereinafter called the "Union")
For the purposes of this Agreement, the "Company" shall mean all members of Council of Marine
Carriers as of the date of signing this Agreement as listed in Appendix "A" hereto.
The general purpose of this Agreement is to secure for the Company, the Union and the Unlicensed
Personnel, the full benefits of orderly and legal collective bargaining and to ensure to the utmost
extent possible the safety and physical welfare of the Unlicensed Personnel, economy of operation,
standard of service and protection of property. It is recognized by this Agreement to be the duty of the
Company and the Union and the Unlicensed Personnel to co-operate fully, individually and
collectively, for the advancement of said conditions.
(a) The Company recognizes the Union as the only certified
bargaining agent for all Unlicensed Personnel employed in the Deck,
Engineroom and Stewards' Departments of vessels owned, operated,
or directly or indirectly controlled by the Company provided that
such vessels are operated within the coastal and inland waters of
British Columbia or in waters bordering on the Yukon and North
West Territories, or if operated on a national or international basis
that the port from which the vessel is dispatched is within the coastal
waters of British Columbia.
(b) Where a vessel covered by this Agreement is chartered or leased,
the terms of such charter or lease shall provide that this Agreement
shall apply unless a vessel is chartered or leased to a Company which
has an Agreement with another Union to man and operate vessels
and such Agreement contains the provision that the other Union has
jurisdiction over the work to be performed. Should the charteree or
lessee fail or neglect to abide by the terms of this Agreement, the
Company, or lessor, shall be liable to the Unlicensed Personnel
concerned for wages or other monetary benefits which are not paid
by the charteree or lessee.
(c) Where a vessel covered by this Agreement is sold to a
nonC.M.C. Company or to an individual, satisfactory proof of such
sale shall be provided to the Union within seven (7) days.
(d) For greater clarity, the Company shall furnish the Union with
a list of the vessels described above, and the parties recognize that the
list may be altered from time to time.
(e) The term Unlicensed Personnel as used in this Agreement does
not include the Masters, Mates and Engineers sailing on these vessels.
(f) A Labour Management Committee shall be established
consisting of members of the unions and representatives of the
companies that jointly participated in the negotiation of the present
agreement. The purpose of the Labour Management Committee
shall be to discuss and make every effort to resolve matters of mutual
interest to the parties and the Committee may discuss grievances,
noise abatement, crew accommodation and safety, which occur on
specific vessels. Where the Committee cannot resolve grievable
matters, then such grievances may be disposed of by either party
under the "Grievance Procedure", contained in this agreement.
Committee meetings shall be held no less than once every two
months, on the third Monday of each second month. Each of the
parties shall submit to the other an agenda of matters to be discussed
at least fourteen (14) days prior to the meeting day.
(g) The Company agrees that only tugs covered by a Union
agreement recognized by legislative statute will be utilized to perform
work. It is understood that the only exception to this would be in the
event of Union vessels being unavailable to do the job when required,
including remote areas where Union vessels do not exist.
(h) The Company and the Union agree that the provisions of the
Canada Labour Code, Part V, pertaining to Successor Rights and
Obligations shall apply to the present Agreement.
The Company agrees that Unlicensed Personnel to be hired
shall be requested through the dispatch office of the Union. Where
forty-eight (48) hours notice of personnel requirements is given by the
Company, the Union will make every reasonable effort to refer
applicants to the Company in advance of the day they are required to
commence work. In cases where the Company rejects individuals that
it does not consider satisfactory, it shall notify the Union immediately
of the rejection and the individual shall be provided with written
reason for such rejection, and the Union shall furnish replacements
with sufficient promptness to avoid delay in sailing at the appointed
time. Rejections shall not be arbitrary or without valid reason.
Should the Union be unable to furnish employees that are capable,
competent and satisfactory to the Company with sufficient promptness to avoid delay in sailing at the appointed time, the Company
may secure replacements from other sources on a temporary basis
subject to Article 1.03, and the Company shall make every reasonable
effort to so notify the Union within twenty-four (24) hours. The
Union reserves the right to replace "replacements" once the temporary requirement has been met.
All Unlicensed Personnel presently employed, or when hired,
shall be required after thirty (30) days employment, as a condition of
employment, either to join the Union and continue as members
thereof during their employment, or in the alternative, to tender to
the Union one month's dues and initiation fees and to pay subsequent
monthly dues and assessments as required of Union members. Such
monthly dues, assessments and initiation fees in the amount as
established by the Union shall be deducted by the Company and
remitted to the Union for all employees covered by this Agreement by
the fifteenth (15th) of the month following the month for which they
are deducted.
Wherever practicable, the Company will notify the Union of
suspensions or dismissals within twenty-four (24) hours of their
occurrence. 1.05 GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

be regarded as servicing engines.

hour worked over and above his normal rate of wages. Where he

days notice except where structural damage to the dock prevents its

shall constitute a week.
(b) For each regular eight (8) hour day worked an employee shall
be credited with .493 days leave.

Shift Starting Times — Fraser and Pitt River Operations
It is agreed that C.M.C. Companies primarily engaged in log towing in river operations on a regular basis should benefit from the
application of a progressive tide work day, that is: the starting times for particular single shift tugs in a specified geographic area may be varied to
suit changing tidal conditions, to take advantage of flood tides in the lower reaches of a river and ebb tides in the upper reaches. It is also agreed
that such variations shall be permitted between 2400 hours and 0600 hours notwithstanding the provisions of Article 3.01 (c) of the Collective
To secure the above arrangement, Letters of Understanding between individual member Companies and the Union shall be executed.
It is agreed that deckhands aboard the "M.V. HAIDA TRANSPORTER" while engaged in directing the placement of, securing and/or

of an existing five-man vessel. It is understood that no objection will be taken to the addition of a Second Mate in justifiable instances.
Section (b) of ARTICLE 1.01 (RECOGNITION) provides in part that should a charteree fail or neglect to abide by the terms of our
Collective Agreement, the Company will be liable to the Unlicensed members concerned for unpaid wages and other monetary benefits. It is
agreed that a six (6) month limitation shall apply to any claims that might arise out of such third party arrangements. In other words, in the event
that a C.M.C. company chartered a vessel to a third party who failed to meet his obligations under the Agreement terms, an Unlicensed member
with a valid claim would be obliged to register his claim with us not later than six (6) months from the date the claim first arose. It is understood
that a claim instituted beyond this point in time will not be recognized.
The Agreement has been structured for ease of reference into Tarts' and then further into Articles. The Tarts' are for reference purposes
only and those provisions of a general nature apply to all employees. For example, the Article 'Marine Disaster', found in Part II — Continuous
Operating Vessels, applies equally to Shift Vessels.
