In 1970, the Boilermakers and United Association developed a joint agreement with Western Stress Relieving Services Inc., which was to go beyond traditional jurisdictional limits. The proposed agreement would apply to the treatment of heating of facilities under the labour jurisdiction of one of the two organisations. 12 8.02 (b) Annex "A," which is annexed, is part of this agreement. ARTICLE 9 EXPENSES, TRAVEL, STANDBY AND DRIVING TIME 9.01 (a) For pipeline projects, the period begins when employees leave the warehouse for the site and ends at the end of time on the site; however, the lunch break is excluded. If the journey at the end of the shift exceeds half (1/2) per hour, the employer pays the half-hour (1/2) counter-hour in a par time for thirty (30) minutes or a part of it that lasts more than thirty (30) minutes. See Appendix F. (a) When a worker is required to register for work in the employer`s company, he is not compensated for the time he spends travelling to and from home. (b) workers who are invited to use their personal vehicles are reimbursed at a rate in accordance with the rating agency`s current average guidelines. This allowance is currently USD 0.50 per km (2012). The annual adjustment of the credit rating agency is implemented on the anniversary of this agreement. (May 1, annual) No worker can be dismissed because he refuses to drive his own vehicle for transportation outside the employer`s store.

(c) Where a worker is in the accommodation provided by the employer or has eligible room and meal expenses under section 9.08 and there is no work available, the worker receives five (5) hours at the rate applicable for a day on standby, which is demobilized or reassigned at the employer`s discretion. This does not apply to scheduled days off. When a worker is required to remain on site or be available for work, the day is a normal day of work and not a day of care, although no work has been done. (d) The normal place of residence must be indicated in writing by the worker at the time of the tenancy, subject to written changes between the employer and the worker. The employer informs the QCCC regional offices of these changes in driving time: the worker has the right to refuse to drive after a combination of more than 13 hours per day. 9 National 18 Lay Off Coverage (f) Lay Off Coverage is granted by the plan to any member who, at the time of dismissal, is in the full plan and has completed at least 350 hours of pension. (g) Eligibility: a member receives one (1) monthly redundancy declaration for every 350 hours worked up to a maximum of six (6) months. If they are available for work done under this agreement.

(h) If a member was in redundancy or self-payment insurance and returned to work for a undersigned employer, he may be eligible for full coverage after spending ninety hours (90) hours earned. (i) j) When a member who is the subject of the above redundancy guarantee works for a non-signatory employer while having such coverage, the member is required to reimburse the bonuses for the recovery plan for his dismissal before he can be reinstated by a undersigned employer. A detailed description of the coverage and merits of the NDT Industry Health- Welfare plan can be found in the policy brochure provided by the Plan Administrator (D. A. Townley – Associates). The QCCC will provide the administrator with a list of all signatory employers and the administrator will notify the QCCC of companies that are not included in the plan. The employer authorizes the plan administrator to submit a monthly copy of the monthly invoice to the QCCC, with the name and amount of each employee; report monthly to QCCC the list of workers covered by the plan (a) if it is shown that a worker has suffered an overdose of ionizing radiation and is not entitled to a work allowance, he is entitled to weekly compensation under this agreement, unless he is able to perform other tasks covered by the agreement.
