LBED continues the process for pay equity compliance
October 1, 2010 LBED Pay Equity Committee
moves forward with the employer to ensure the LBCO is pay equity compliant.
Although the process has been on going since 2007, the first joint
newsletter was sent out to the LCBO employees early September.
A Joint Job Evaluation Committee (JJEC)
has been established to evaluate and compare job classes. JJEC has
identified a representative random sampling of employees from all bargaining
unit positions to complete a job information questionnaire (JIQ). Meeting
dates have been established for the questionnaire completion.
