As you all know, COPE currently has a policy grievance filed regarding vacation/.vacation payout. As we are actively working on this grievance, we are advising all members that as per Article 13.09(b) of the Collective Agreement, if you have any remaining vacation that you will not be using before the end of the year, that you wish to carry over for use next year, that you put this in writing and send it to your RD/ARD.
We would also like to advise that this be done as soon as reasonably possible, as HR usually needs all forms to be submitted before the first week of December. If you have any difficulty getting your request approved, please advise your RVP right away.
We will keep you all apprised of any resolution to this matter.
