    Le 24 janvier 2020 - La loi d’exécution du budget du gouvernement fédéral pour 2017 et 2018 (projets de loi C-63 et C-86) prévoyait d’importantes modifications de la partie III du Code canadien du travail (« C.c.t. » ou « le Code »), qui établit les normes minimales d’emploi pour les employeurs qui opèrent sous juridiction fédérale, comme Telus et Shaw. Les dispositions du Code, qui prévoient pour les conditions minimales, ne prévalent pas sur les dispositions plus favorables prévues dans une convention collective.

    Voici quelques-uns des changements actuellement en vigueur qui peuvent affecter les conditions de travail de nos membres.

    Congés de décès C.c.t., s.210 

    En cas de décès d’un proche parent, l’employé a droit à un congé d’au plus cinq jours qui peut être pris pendant la période qui commence à la date du décès et se termine six semaines après la date des funérailles du proche parent, de son inhumation ou du service commémoratif tenu à son égard, selon celle qui est la plus éloignée, sauf prolongation accordée suite à une demande écrite.

    Si l’employé a travaillé sans interruption depuis au moins trois mois, les trois premiers jours du congé sont payés à l’employé.

    Congé personnel C.c.t., 206.6

    Le projet de loi C-63 prévoyait la promulgation de 3 jours de « congé pour obligations familiales » par année civile, que le projet de loi C-86 a remplacé par la suite par 5 jours de « congé personnel » pour les cas suivants :

    • a) soigner sa maladie ou sa blessure ;
    • b) s’acquitter d’obligations relatives à la santé de tout membre de sa famille ou aux soins à lui fournir ;
    • c) s’acquitter d’obligations relatives à l’éducation de tout membre de sa famille qui est âgé de moins de dix-huit ans ;
    • d) gérer toute situation urgente le concernant ou concernant un membre de sa famille ;
    • e) assister à sa cérémonie de la citoyenneté sous le régime de la Loi sur la citoyenneté ;
    • f) gérer toute autre situation prévue par règlement.

    Cela signifie que peu importe votre ancienneté ou statut d’emploi, vous aurez droit à 5 jours de congé personnel. Si l’employé a travaillé sans interruption depuis au moins trois mois, les trois premiers jours du congé sont payés à l’employé.

    Congé de maternité, congé parental et congé en cas de maladie grave C.c.t., s.466, 467, 469

    L’admissibilité à ces formes de congé ne nécessite plus 6 mois consécutifs d’emploi.

    Congé pour les victimes de violence familiale C.c.t., s.206.7 

    Cette section accorde un congé d’au plus dix jours par année civile à un employé qui est victime de...

    January 24, 2020 - The federal government's budget implementation legislation for 2017 and 2018 (Bills C-63 and C-86) included extensive changes to Part III of the Canada Labour Code ("CLC" or "the Code"), which sets out minimum employment standards for employers operating under federal jurisdiction, like Telus and Shaw. As minimum standards legislation, the Code's provisions do not override more favourable arrangements provided for in a collective agreement.

    Here are some of the changes currently in effect that are likely to affect our members’ working conditions.

    Bereavement Leave CLC, s.210

    Every employee is entitled to up to 5 days of bereavement leave for the death of an immediate family member. The leave can be taken during the period that begins on the day on which the death occurs and ends six weeks after the latest of the days on which any funeral, burial or memorial service of that immediate family member occurs, unless extended in writing.

    If the employee has at least 3 months service, the employee is entitled to the first 3 days paid. 

    Personal Leave CLC, 206.6 

    While Bill C-63 would have enacted 3 days of Family Responsibility Leave per calendar year, Bill C-86 subsequently replaced this with 5 days of Personal Leave for employee’s responsibilities related to: 

    • (a) treating their illness or injury;
    • (b) carrying out responsibilities related to the health or care of any of their family members;
    • (c) carrying out responsibilities related to the education of any of their family members who are under 18 years of age;
    • (d) addressing any urgent matter concerning themselves or their family members;
    • (e) attending their citizenship ceremony under the Citizenship Act; and
    • (f) any other reason prescribed by regulation.

    This means that regardless of your tenure job classification you will be entitled to 5 days of Personal Leave. The first 3 days are paid for any employee with at least 3 months service.

    Maternity Leave, Parental Leave and Leave Related to Critical Illness CLC, s.466, 467, 469

    Eligibility for these forms of leave no longer requires 6 consecutive months of employment. 

    Leave for Victims of Family Violence CLC s.206.7

    This section grants every employee entitlement to a leave of absence up to 10 days in every calendar year who is either a victim of family violence, or is the parent of a child who is a victim of family violence. The first 5 days are paid if a member has been employed for 3 consecutive months.

    Breaks for Medical Reasons or Nursing CLC, 181.1, 181.2, 181.3

    Members and Retirees of Local 5328.

     I'm sure most have been informed of the management restructuring. The breakdown of who will be in charge of who is.

     Isabel Martinez is appointed Director of Operations for the Hamilton East Plant.

     Ronald Watkins, Senior Coordinator, Inventory and Warehouse and Adam Fleming, Senior Coordinator, Production will report to Isabel Martinez.

     Isabel and her family will complete a relocation process in the coming months. This change will therefore be in effect from April 1, 2020.

     Jaideo Debie is appointed Technical Director of the Hamilton East Plant.

     Jaideo is currently the Plant Director for Hamilton East.

     Nichole Damas, Senior Coordinator, Continuous Improvement and Process Control, Paul Sparks, Senior Coordinator, Maintenance and Guillermo Jorquera, Project Manager, Building and Environment will report to Jaideo Debie.

     This change will be effective from April 1, 2020.

     Catherine Vinci is appointed Quality Director of the Wire group.

     Gail Sokolov, Metallurgist, Hamilton East Quality, Maryam Chamaneh, Project Metallurgist, Hamilton East, Khushbu Kumari Singh, Project Metallurgist, Hamilton East as well as Lesmer Machalski, Metallurgist, St-Patrick Quality will report to Catherine Vinci.

     This change will take effect from February 1, 2020.

     Gerald Delvecchio is appointed Director, Operations and Quality Support for the Wire group.

     This change will take effect from February 1, 2020.

     Coming to our plant as the new Director of Operations, (Plant Manager), is Isabell Martinez. I have personally met Isabell on a few occasions and find her extremely personable and definitely approachable!! Isabell has a lot of energy and I’m absolutely sure this is a great move for our plant and members.   

     The Hamilton United Way will be doing a donation blitz in the coming weeks. For years many of us had a donation deducted from our pay, that is tax deductible. I’m guessing the last blitz was about 25 years ago. The United Way helps many organizations, people in need, in our community and are looking to us to sign up for a ongoing payroll deduction. $2, $5, what ever you can afford every two weeks will go a long way!! I’ll send more information in the coming week. 

    Congratulations to our upcoming retirements!! 

    Joe Castiglione 

    Guy Suttonwood 

    Wilf Edwards

    Mike Pilon. 

    The great thing about retirement is, you never get a “day” off!! You get them all off!! 

     

    Well done Gents! Enjoy! 

    Anthony Ciaramella 
    President
