Joint Job Evaluation Committee
In accordance with the Collective Agreement, the Joint Job Evaluation Committee (JJEC) oversees the Job Evaluation Program.
The Joint Job Evaluation Committee is appointed by the Employer and the Union to deal with appeals lodged by the incumbent(s) and/or management with respect to the rating of a job.
The JJEC will be responsible for rating all newly created job classifications and those existing job classifications which have undergone material change and annually a proportion of job classifications to ensure currency (maintenance).
The Committee ensures fairness and maintains integrity while meeting (as required) to review appeals under the CUPE 54 Joint Job Evaluation Program.
