Good day Union Family
September 30th, the National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.I have had a number of phone calls about this day falling on a Saturday this year. Under the Provincial Construction collective agreement and both the General Presidents Maintenance Agreement and the Alberta National Maintenance Agreement there is no longer day in lieu requirements. As such the day is observed on the day it falls. If working you will be paid the required overtime, but Monday will not be a day off or paid at overtime rates.
The Local 110 offices follow the same statutory holiday schedule as stated in the Provincial Construction Collective Agreement. As such, the offices in Edmonton and Calgary will be open as normal on Monday October 2, 2023.
If you have any questions about the agreement or the statutory holiday requirements please contact your area Business Agent or myself at the Edmonton office.
