AJC´s Grievances See Members Recredited Losses Caused by Leave Reconciliation Exercise

As we indicated to members in May, the Federal Public Sector Labour Relations and Employment Board (Board) concluded that management's unilateral directive on the leave reconciliation exercise was unreasonable and unfair.  The parties were invited to resolve the remedy on their own or to make submissions to the Board in the event they are unable to agree.
We are happy to announce that we have signed a MOU that you can read here.

Please note that the French MOU is an unofficial translation.

What's in the deal?

In essence, members will be restored to the state of affairs before the leave reconciliation exercise, except where it puts the employee in a worse position.  

Members who had vacation leave and/or their sick banks debited as a result of the leave reconciliation exercise will have these banks re-credited for the equivalent number of hours.

Any members who paid money to the Employer as a result of a shortfall in their leave banks will be repaid at the rates that apply on July 16, 2018.

Former employees will receive cash payouts.

Where the leave reconciliation exercise resulted in employees having additional leave credited to their leave banks, these credits will not be reversed.  

We would like to once again thank those members who came forward in order to testify and support our efforts in the interests of the entire membership.

This is one of several recent examples of the AJC being forced to litigate to defend the interests of our members against management practices that were unfair and unreasonable.  We were particularly troubled that in this case the Employer refused our request to suspend the exercise pending the outcome of our grievances.  We are pleased to have successfully grieved on your behalf and hope never to see you subjected to any similar unfair exercises again.  

Rest assured, however, that should this occur, we will be here to challenge them.
