503 Stewards - Investigation Meetings and Step 1 Meetings - BCGEU

It has come to your Union's attention that there may be some confusion in respect to attending investigation and Step 1 meetings with members. 


2.6 Recognition and Rights of Stewards

(c) A steward, or their alternate, shall obtain the permission of their immediate supervisor before leaving their work to perform their duties as a steward. Leave for this purpose shall be with pay. Such permission shall not be unreasonably withheld. On resuming their normal duties, the steward shall notify their supervisor.

When attending a meeting with a member as their Union representation, Stewards will be paid at straight-time rates. Your Manager should contact the LDB HR department if they are unsure how to code your leave.

If you have any questions, please contact your local executive committee or your staff representative.

In solidarity

Brittney Buss
Staff representative
