Union Business. (a) The Hospital shall grant leave of absence without pay to employees to attend Union conventions, seminars, education classes and other Union business in connection with the administration of the collective agreement provided that such leave will not interfere with the efficient operation of the Hospital. Such leave will not be unreasonably denied. In requesting such leave of absence for an employee or employees, the Union must give at least fourteen (14) days clear notice in writing to the Hospital, unless not reasonably possible to give such notice. The cumulative total leave of absence, the number of employees that may be absent at any one time from any one area, and the number of days of absence shall be negotiated locally and are set out in the Local Provisions Appendix. During such leave of absence, the employee's salary and applicable benefits shall be maintained by the Hospital on the basis of what his normal regular hours of work would have been, provided that the Union reimburses the Hospital in the amount of such salary and applicable benefits within thirty (30) days of billing. Notwithstanding the above, time spent by the eight (8) Executive Board members and seven (7) Alternate Executive Board members of the Ontario Council of Hospital Unions to fulfill the duties of the position shall be in addition to leave for Union Business under this clause. Part-time and casual employees will be given full credit for seniority purposes for regularly scheduled hours missed in accordance with this provision.

A Union's request for such a leave of absence, and for the return of an employee to work at the conclusion of such a leave, shall each be served upon the involved Employer, in writing, a minimum of two (2) calendar weeks immediately preceding the date of the proposed commencement of the requested leave and the proposed return to work, respectively. Not more than one (1) employee shall be given such a leave from the same store during the same period of time, nor shall more than three (3) employees in the company be on such a leave at one time. An eligible employee shall not be granted more than one (1) such leave of absence during the term of this Agreement, nor shall such a leave of absence be granted to an employee who, at the time of his request for such leave of absence, is on a leave of absence from the Employer for any other reason. Upon his return, he shall be reemployed at work similar to that in which he was engaged immediately prior to his leave of absence in accordance with Article 9, Section D.
