Update on APOC Job Evaluation Plans

SUMMARY: In February 2007, Canada Post and APOC jointly embarked on a

journey to review, update or develop both APOC Job Evaluation Plans

(Operations and Marketing Sales & Service (MSS)). For your information,

following is an update on the critical work accomplished by the Joint

Committee as of February 29, 2008.

ACTION REQUIRED: For information only

DETAILS: March 2007

 Provided Job Analysis and Job Evaluation training for Joint


 Prepared Job Analysis Questionnaire and Interview


 Conducted Job Interviews in the Quebec, GTA, Huron

Rideau and Prairie Regions

 Interviewed 130 APOC-represented employees from


 Interviewed 30 APOC-represented employees from MSS

April - June 2007

 Analyzed the responses to the Job Analysis Interview


 Gathered information during interviews to enable the

development of the new Job Evaluation Plans (Operations and MSS)

 Prepared the Job Information Gathering Tool (JIGT), which

contains the skills and responsibilities efforts and working conditions of

your new Job Evaluation Plan

 Validated JIGT with Sponsor Representatives

 Validated JIGT with Project Steering Committee

 Planned and scheduled the Employee Focus Groups

July - September 2007

 Validated JIGT with APOC-represented employees from both

Operations and MSS

 Held 88 Focus Groups in 19 cities (21 locations), with

participation from:

- 396 APOC-represented Operations employees,

- 93 APOC-represented MSS employees.

Purpose of the Focus Groups

 Involve APOC-represented employees in this critical phase

by seeking their validation of the work completed in developing the new

Job Evaluation Plan

 Give APOC-represented employees the opportunity to

comment on the skills and responsibilities of their jobs.

The response to the JIGT was very supportive. During the post-Focus

Group feedback sessions over 80% of participants recognized their roles

and responsibilities as well as those of other job holders in Operations and

MSS. While it is not feasible to survey all employees during the

development phase, the project will be calling upon all APOC-represented

employees during the final phase to participate. Employees from locations

that were not part of the Focus Group phase will be involved.

September 2007 February 2008

 Analyzed the responses provided in the JIGTs completed

during the Focus Groups

 Refined the JIGTs in preparation for the final phase of the

project, now that all Operations and MSS JIGTs have been analyzed

March 2008 June 2008

The Committee will not meet the deadline of March 31, 2008 to finalize the

development of both the Operations and MSS Plans. Both parties continue

to work diligently to finalize the development of both plans, which will

measure the skills, responsibilities, efforts and working conditions of APOC-

represented employees.

Next steps for the Joint Committee are to:

 finalize the French versions of the JIGT for Operations and


 resume work on core activities through March /April 2008

 secure agreement with the developed plan by both parties

i.e. Canada Post and APOC

Attached are Questions and Answers to provide you with additional

information and clarity on the project.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your collaboration

and continued support of this critical initiative. Please email any concerns or

questions to the project at: APOC JEP 2007 / PEP AOPC 2007.
