The Union has filed a grievance, but what do you think?
12 HOUR WORK CYCLE
1. Banked Hours From Statutory Holiday Credits:
The banked statutory holiday hours will be derived from the accumulation of 4 hour statutory holiday credits (12 x 4 hours = 48 hours credit). Banked hours may be used in whole or in part, together with regular or deferred vacation credits, to provide a complete cycle. The banked hours are applicable only to personnel in permanently classified shift positions. Permanently classified shift personnel who elect to bank statutory holiday credits, must declare their intention to bank these credits prior to the start of the vacation season (May 1) and the 4-hour credit will be derived from consecutive statutory holidays commencing with the first statutory holiday in May.
Any unused banked statutory holiday credits will be paid out as of April 30 of the vacation year.
2. Banked Hours From Overtime:
The banked overtime hours provide a vehicle whereby permanently classified shift personnel may bank up to 72 hours per year, which may be worked between March 1 and February 28 of each year. The plan will operate in accordance with the following:
a. Employees eligible must indicate their request to bank on the applicable time sheets.
b. The banked overtime hours must only be utilized after the booking of all regular vacation hours (excluding deferred hours) and will only be considered for approval following regular requests.
c. Overtime will not be used to cover banked overtime hours.
d. Regular vacation, which cannot be deferred, must be used prior to the banked overtime hours being used.
e. Employees are eligible to take their banked overtime hours effective May.
