Union Leave. Leave of absence without pay shall be granted to employees selected by the Union to attend Union conventions or conferences, or Union business, provided that the leave does not unduly interfere with the operations of the Employer. The cumulative total leave of absence and the number of days is determined by the local parties. It is agreed that the cumulative total for these leaves shall not exceed one hundred (100) days per calendar year. Such request is to be made fourteen (14) calendar days in advance, where practicable, in writing by the Union. Such leave will not be unreasonably denied. Where it is normal practice, the Employer will endeavour to replace any employee who is on leave for Union business by another employee covered by the Collective Agreement. During such leave of absence, an employee's salary and applicable benefits or percentage in lieu of benefits shall be maintained by the Employer and the local Union agrees to reimburse the Employer in the amount of the salary of the employee. Employees will receive service and seniority credit for all leaves granted under this Article.

The Board agrees to recommend to the Teachers’ Retirement Board that time spent on leave be granted as service credit for retirement and that the employee be permitted to pay regular monthly contributions. Upon their return to service, they shall be placed in an assignment comparable to that which they left. The employee shall be granted salary credit and seniority for up to six (6) years spent on leave working for the Union. Such leave shall not be granted for more than seven (7) persons in any one (1) year.

Upon the written request of the Union, leave shall be granted to employees who are appointed full time representatives of the Union. Annually, the Appointing Authority may request the Union to confirm the employee's continuation on Union Leave. Leave time for service on a Union Master Negotiating Team/Assembly, supplemental negotiations, Agency meet and confers, and attendance at meet and confers established by this Agreement shall be considered as paid leave for purposes of vacation leave and sick leave accrual. Leave time for service on a Union Master Negotiating Team and attendance at meet and confers established by this Agreement shall also be considered as paid leave for purposes of eligibility for holiday pay.
Union Leave. Meetings between representatives of the union and the employer will be scheduled at times mutually agreeable to the Parties. Reasonable effort shall be made to hold such meetings at times that do not conflict with assigned duties. Where such meetings cannot be scheduled at times that do not conflict with assigned duties, the employer will grant a leave of absence without loss of pay or other entitlements for the purpose of attending such meetings to the total equivalent of one-quarter full-time equivalent per annum. Where such leave is granted, the employer will replace the employee as necessary. This clause may be utilized by the union to ensure adequate representation by the union with respect to issues that affect the institution or the post-secondary system. To facilitate the administration of this provision, the union will ensure that the employer is advised of the eligible leaves to be taken. The union may designate a person(s) who will be entitled to union leave under this Article and will advise the employer of the amount of the leave to be taken. The amount of the entitlement is one quarter of a full time equivalent per annum, without loss of pay or other entitlement. Costs arising from this provision will not be charged against the program area of the participating union representative. This provision will not be utilized where existing employer-paid release time arrangements exceed this one-quarter full-time equivalent entitlement.
