PROVINCIAL CONTRACT TALKS / LABOUR RELATIONS
Payment of additional compensation
The new national provisions of the collective agreement are now in force, and under clause 9.14, two additional compensation amounts (lump-sum payments) will be paid by the employer to all employees on February 25. The first amount is equal to $0.33 for each paid hour between April 1, 2019, and March 31, 2020, and the second is equal to $0.33 for each paid hour between April 1, 2020, and March 31, 2021.
In calculating the amount you’ll receive, all paid hours will be taken into account, including overtime and on-call duty hours, hours of paid time off (vacation, statutory holidays, floating days off, special leave, etc.), and hours of paid leave (sick leave, disability insurance, maternity, paternity and adoption leave). Parental leave allowance, and benefits paid by the CNESST, IVAC, the SAAQ and the employer in cases of work-related accidents, will also be included in the calculation.
Don’t forget to check that you’ve received your payments by the end of February.
