To pay casual members premium pay ( 1 1/2 ) per hour when they work on a Statutory holiday.
Pay double time for full time members after the employer exhausts all efforts to fill a shift as per the collective agreement. ” until the pandemic is over”
I first would like to thank you all for all the work that you all have been doing since the start of the Pandemic.
I know, and your executive knows, how much we have all changed, how we do things, for the benefit, well being and safety of the Islanders and visitors in which we serve.
As a token of appreciation, your executive has agreed, to provide all our members with a gift card for Irving fuel stations. To ensure every member receives one, we have asked the employer to include them in their Christmas envelopes. When you receive yours from the employer, you will find, a card for you.
Finially, on behalf of our executive I would like to personally, wish you and your family a Happy Holidays and a safe and wonderful New Years!
We will get through this! But the Province can not do it without our members working on the frontlines.
Hope all is well with all of you. I want to ensure that everyone is clear on the COVID 19 testing for our members.
As per Public Health you are required to be tested as a essential worker. If you are off and not working, then the employer can not demand you to come in to be tested on your time off with out compensating you as per the collective agreement.
However, when you return to the work place, the employer then can demand you to have a COVID 19 test while you are on the employers time.
I would encourage all our members, to be tested as it is a responsibility our profession to ensure the general public is cared for in the safest manor as possible.
Hopefully this clears up any misunderstanding. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to your area rep.
