As of 2012 July 25 (date of collective agreement ratification) CRPEG members who had vacation time in excess of the carry-over maximum had this time preserved under the label of “Vacation Reserve” (see attachment from HR). This vacation reserve may be accessed using the normal Leave Project and Task numbers in Oracle and then selecting “Vacation Reserve” as the type.
Members are under no obligation to use this time or any other leave type (banked time, vacation, company floating holidays) preferentially when charging leave time in Oracle.
While management may ask what type of leave you will be charging for requested time off, they cannot deny a request for time off for any reason other than “operational requirements” as per the collective bargaining agreement (see Articles 10.04 and 13.02).
