Settlement regarding Article 23.06 of the collective agreement

I am pleased to report that we have reached a mediated settlement with the Employer concerning Article 23.06 of the Collective Agreement.


The Article is as follows:

23.06When an employee works the majority of their regular workday hours, no sick leave credit(s) will be deducted.


The agreement reached is as follows:

The parties agree that the phrase “majority” of their regular workday hours” in Article 23.06 means fifty percent(50%) of their regular workday hours plus one half hour.

In Solidarity,
Sister Mary Jessome
