SHIFT DIFFERENTIAL DOES NOT APPLY TO AUXILIARY WORKERS NOT COVERING FOR A REGULAR FULL-TIME or PART-TIME ABSENCE
Please note that, unfortunately, the employer will no longer be paying shift differential (75 cents per hour) to any auxiliaries who are NOT covering for a regular full-time or regular part-time employee who is absent.
Please note – this language has been in the collective agreement for many years. This is not something new that came out of the recent round of bargaining!
The language can be found on page 70 of the (old) collective agreement in the Letter of Understanding entitled “Collective Agreement Application – Temporary Full-Time and Auxiliary Employees” / Section 1.
Some auxiliaries were being paid shift differential while just working “auxiliary hours” (meaning, not covering for a “regular” employee). The employer served the local with notification at bargaining which stated that the past practice would be discontinuing…and they would be following the clear language of the collective agreement from now on for payment of shift differential to auxiliary employees.
This is understandably upsetting for some of our members, and is a sad commentary on the value placed on auxiliary work at the Township.
