Yesterday, the CBC announced it has decided to eliminate four job classifications in sales: two CMG (Account Manager and National Account Manager) and two APS (Network Account Manager and Inside Sales Representative). Two new classifications have been created instead, and we’ve been informed that the new jobs are expected to be posted in early September. Also yesterday, we learned that CBC will be cutting 30 jobs in shared services (all affiliations) by April 1, 2015.
Over the coming weeks we will be discussing this restructuring plan with CBC including reviewing the new job descriptions and their union affiliation, job evaluation and workforce adjustment implications. We have advised CBC that there will be concerns that this process is a cherry-picking exercise.
We understand that these announcements in Sales and Shared Services impact many members across the country and that the lack of details is very stressful. We are working to get more information to you as it becomes available and provide all the guidance we can. As always, CMG will make sure members’ rights under the collective agreement are respected.
