Statement

When an employee who is granted injury-on-duty leave with pay has top-up credits as defined in clause 20.08 of the collective agreement, the Corporation uses these top-up credits to make up the difference between 75% of the regular salary and the minimal amount the Corporation has to pay under the Government Employees Compensation Act and the applicable provincial legislation. In doing so, the Corporation is violating the provisions of the collective agreement and of the said acts.

Corrective Steps Requested

CUPW requests a statement to the effect that the Corporation has violated the provisions of the collective agreement by using top-up credits to make up the difference between 75% and the minimal amount the Corporation has to pay under the Government Employees Compensation Act and the applicable provincial legislation.

CUPW requests an order instructing the Corporation to stop using top-up credits to make up the difference between 75% and the minimal amount the Corporation has to pay under the Government Employees Compensation Act and the applicable provincial legislation.

CUPW requests that the Corporation be ordered to reinstate the top-up credits used in violation of the collective agreement and the law to the employees affected by the aforementioned violation of the collective agreement.

Finally, the union reserves the right to amend this grievance or request any other corrective action it may deem appropriate.
