Posted in: Unclassified | 0

The general assembly will take place on Wednesday, April 27th at 11:30 a.m., in room M-2107 of the Lassonde building. Members participating in the GA will have a union release of 90 minutes, then a free meal!

Details of the agreement in principle

  • Better union leave approval

  • 35 (rather than 40)-hour work week confirmed
  • Up to ten days of sick leave or family leave per year, rather than seven days for sick leave only
  • A medical certificate can only be requested after three consecutive days of sick leave, rather than on the first day
  • Better bereavement leave, now counted in working rather than consecutive days
  • Better marriage leave, now five working days rather than consecutive days
