PPSC National Timekeeping Protocol Amended Following AJC Policy Grievance

Timekeeping and hours of work have been a long-standing issue that continues to come up between AJC members and their managers.   While the AJC collective agreement clearly provides for a flexible workweek with an average of 37.5 hours per week over each four-week period (see article 13.01), some managers and LPs alike are under the mistaken impression that LPs must work or time-keep a minimum of 7.5 hours per day.  When confusion arises the AJC is usually able to assist by engaging the departments' labour relations staff and Treasury Board, since we are all agreed that no daily minimum is required under the collective agreement.

More recently, the AJC learned that PPSC's National Timekeeping Protocol was recently amended (without consulting the AJC) to include a requirement that 7.5 hours per day be docketed. Managers mistakenly relied on the protocol rather than the collective agreement.

We are happy to report that the Policy Grievance has been settled and that the PPSC Timekeeping Protocol has been amended again, this time to eliminate any suggestion of a minimum daily requirement. Note that the DOJ Timekeeping Protocol had no such error.

The following PPSC communique was issued to PPSC employees confirming the amendments to the Timekeeping Protocol.

The AJC encourages all members to contact admin@ajc-ajj.ca or your Governing Council representative, if they are being required to docket or work hours in a manner that runs contrary to Section 13 of the collective agreement.
