TEO Special Case sign now

ONLINE PETITION TO OUR OPS EMPLOYER


We, the undersigned Transportation Enforcement Officers (TEOs) of Ontario, wish to petition the following:

We are the Transportation Enforcement Officers (TEOs) of Ontario. We perform the ministrys enforcement activities for the Eastern, Northern, Northwestern, Central, and Southwestern regions by enforcing the statutes and regulations related to the operation of Commercial Motor Vehicles (CMV) in Ontario.

We inspect CMV and enforce the legislative requirements for CMV, including transport trucks, school buses, and motor coaches operating on Ontario highways, through area mobile enforcement and through 25 strategically placed Truck Inspection Stations. This includes transport trucks, school buses, and motor coaches operating on Ontario highways.

We monitor the commercial carrier industry through field audits conducted on-site at the carriers facilities to ensure compliance with the federal and provincial regulations.

We want our employer to know that there is a large wage inconsistency within the OPS related to enforcement. We are one of the lowest paid enforcement groups in the Provincial Government, yet we are entrusted with the most important front line enforcement duties, directly impacting the day-to-day safety of all Ontario citizens. We had presented a special case before the bargaining teams at the last few contract negotiations, which has never been adequately addressed. In the last round of negotiations, the employer also failed to address our job classification.

As public servants, we provide a real, tangible contribution to the daily safety of all road users in the province of Ontario. We save lives through the work that we do. We are a highly trained workforce who constantly have to take refresher training in order to maintain levels of inspections and accreditation. We are the only enforcement group in the province responsible for maintaining Ontarios high standing within the Commercial Vehicle Safety Alliance. We are certified, accredited members in this North American wide team, enforcing truck safety on the highways and conducting on-site field audits at the carriers facilities, yet we are not paid or recognized for the difficult and vital work we perform. To retain a talented and skilled workforce and deliver quality public services for Ontarians, it is imperative that during this round of bargaining, our special case be seriously considered and addressed by the employer.

When our bargaining team presents our special case during this round of bargaining, we ask that you recognize the vital contributions we make to save lives and, as such, our wages need to be brought into parity with other enforcement officers.
