Mr. Cole:

The term "penalize" is employed by my hon. friend. We did not have any intention to do that. We do not think we have penalized anybody. We were faced with the fact that we had to implement the 40-hour week and to do that we had to employ these people as relief men. It was done in 86 centres without any change being made. In 26 offices the senior men did not accept. There was no question of going over the senior men, but somebody had to do the job. Since they did not want to do that job, we had to employ other people.

Mr. Cole:

It was not the intention to penalize any man in the service. We had to employ new men to do the job; that was the only way we could get it done.

To check letter carrier walks. To assist in the training of inexperienced help and to perform such other related duties as may be required.

3. Yes, at the minimum, $660, at the maximum, $300.

4. Yes, in some offices.

5. Yes, as outlined on March 17, page 3071 of Hansard.

6. Yes.

7. That selection of annual leave periods be on a basis of length of service irrespective of rank. This has been granted where the practical requirements permit as follows:

(a) If as many suitable supervisory letter carriers as are required, in each letter carrier delivery office, can be recruited without their being given priority for annual leave, this is to be done.

(b) In those centres where it is not possible to recruit the necessary number of suitable supervisory letter carriers without these employees being given priority for annual leave, then they are to be given this priority within the block of ten walks.
