Hello Members:

In keeping with our vision of clarity and transparency, we wanted to give you an update on the Payout of Casual Sick Leave.

This grievance has been referred back to the PROVINCIAL RESOLUTION COMMITTEE.

As per the Collective Agreement that was reached between CUPE and the Council of Trustee Association, where it states “Casuals are entitled to sick leave after being in an assignment longer than 12 days”.

Remember to document the sick days you’ve taken, the length of your assignment, dates and the location you were in when you took those days, if you’ve been in the assignment longer than 12 days.

*Please remember that the employer is not obligated to document this information for you.*

Any casuals that have had this occur, should contact myself or one of the stewards, so we have it on record.
