Article 16.3(b) gives auxiliary employees a choice in how they want to receive their 6% vacation pay. They can either receive it on each cheque as a percentage of their gross earnings or bank the amount. The decision is solely with the auxiliary employee.

An auxiliary employee decides to bank their vacation pay must give the "employer notice in writing on date of hire or by December 15th of each year for the following calendar year [emphasis added]." Absent that notice – at time of hire or by December 15th of each year, the 6% vacation pay will be added to each pay cheque. Employees who bank their vacation pay will be paid out by December 31st of each year as per Article 16.3(c).


In solidarity,

Freyja Sankey, Chairperson, Bargaining Committee
Gail Gordon, Member, Bargaining Committee
