Letting your licenses expire can cost you dearly.

It has come to our attention that there are guards letting their licenses expire. In the last set of negotiations the Company stated clearly that no guard will be aloud to work with expired licenses. This also includes your First Aid and Health and Safety. It is our understanding that UPS notifies you three (3) months in advance of the expiry of those licenses. Please advise us if this is not the case. 

We understand that if you apply early and can prove that you have submitted your renewal you will be allowed to work if you are only waiting for the approved licenses. I would like to hear from you if the policy is being followed correctly and if there are problems with the Companies notifications or procedures. I would like to have information prior to our upcoming negotiations meeting of April 18th and 19th, 2013.

Thank you for your cooperation. Please contact me via e-mail at aduckworth@ufcw401.ab.ca or via phone at 1-403-861-2121.
