CRPEG Bulletin (2016 Nov 28): Issues with Approval of Banked Time

Some members have brought forward issues around the approval of banked time. Specifically:

•Accumulation of banked time limited to 2.5 hours per week

•Allowed to bank time for the 3.5 days for the Christmas shutdown only

•Unreasonable denial of banked time requests

The CRPEG Executive is asking anyone who has had any issues with banked time requests to please let us know at your earliest convenience. If you have any concerns about using the Company e-mail system you can respond to Jonathan’s personal e-mail address: jfitzpat@pipsc.ca . To ensure confidentiality, any issues raised will be brought to the Company at the Division level.

Members are reminded that there have been no changes to the banked time provisions.

That is:

Members may elect to accumulate extra hours on a straight time basis to a maximum of seventy five hours

for day workers and 4 shifts for shift workers. The accumulation of extra hours must be on productive work with the prior approval of management. Opportunities to accumulate banked time will not be unreasonably denied.
