What if I get sick while on vacation? 

Did you know that under our collective agreement:

If you are an employee who qualifies for sick leave with pay and you get sick while off on vacation time you are able to use sick leave for the days you are ill. Your vacation days will either be added to your vacation period, or reinstated to be used at a later date, by mutual agreement. You will need to provide a doctor’s note.

If you have any questions about the collective agreement, please reach out to one of your shop stewards or union representatives.

Is there a clause that you are not sure about? Let us know and we will answer your question and may include it in our newsletter. Odds are, if you are unsure, others are too! It’s important for all of us to understand our rights and responsibilities under our contract.
