UPDATE – Leisure Passes and Medical Leave Pilot

TO ALL MEMBERS OF CUPE LOCAL 59:

CUPE 59 and the City of Saskatoon have begun the next round of bargaining.  At our session on September 4, 2019, CUPE 59 requested an extension to the Leisure Pass subsidy while the parties continue to bargain.  The City has agreed to extend the Leisure Pass subsidy for a period of three (3) months from October 1, 2019 until December 31, 2019.

This program will end on December 31, 2019 or upon reaching our next tentative agreement, whichever comes first.

 

CUPE 59 also requested an extension to the Medical Leave Pilot while the parties continue to bargain.

The City is prepared to extend the Medical Leave Pilot for a period of three (3) months from October 1, 2019 until December 31, 2019. The conditions remain the same with the exception that the benefit is pro-rated for the period of three months. All other eligibilities will remain the same.

An eligible employee who is unable to schedule a medical appointment outside of their scheduled work time, shall be granted time off with pay. For the term of this extension, such time off with pay shall not exceed a total of:

Two (2) hours of accumulated sick leave credits for full-time employees. One (1) hours of accumulated sick leave credits for part-time and seasonal employees.

This program will end on December 31, 2019 or upon reaching our next tentative agreement, whichever comes first.
