AJC has Joined the Fight Against C-59 as a Co-Applicant in the Charter Challenge

We Remind Members to Take a Screen Shot of Their Sick Leave Banks

As you recall, the controversial omnibus budget bill C-59 was adopted earlier this year.  Under this new legislation, the government could decide at any moment to unilaterally eliminate the sick leave banks as part of the creation of their new short term disability plan. This is a very real possibility because unilateral changes to our sick leave are allowed under C-59.

The AJC has not stood by. We are co-applicant in a Charter challenge led by PIPSC and CAPE against C-59. You can read the latest on this: an Ontario Superior Court judge has just ordered the Conservative government to give five days' notice if it plans to impose a new sick leave deal on Canada's public servants.

In the meantime, as an AJC member and federal employee, we remind you to take a screen shot of your sick leave bank every month, in case your bank is eliminated.

If we win this case, the federal government would have to restore your sick leave bank. In the process, the government may restore the wrong amount of sick leave by mistake, and a screenshot may be the best evidence to rectify the error.

We ask that you pass on this message to other AJC members who might have missed it.

Thank you for you cooperation. Spread the word!
