Working After the Paid Work Day

In light of the upcoming night of Parent-Teacher Interviews, I feel it necessary to remind our members of the recently negotiated language in the Collective Agreement.  Article C 9.00 gives members the right to be paid for additional hours of work in accordance with provisions in our Local agreement, PROVIDED YOU ARE REQUIRED BY THE EMPLOYER TO WORK THOSE HOURS. An invitation to work for free after your work day is finished, is NOT a requirement to work and does not reflect the value of the work you perform for the employer.  As a member of CUPE Local 4186, I respectfully request that you go home after your paid work day and enjoy some family, friend or “me” time. If the employer requires you to work, please get that fact in writing ahead of time so we can make sure you are properly compensated.
