Black Top Cabs – Federal Statutory Holiday September 19 and How it Affects You
September 16, 2022
To: MoveUP Members at Black Top Cabs
The federal government has announced that Monday, September 19, 2022 will be a holiday for the federal public service to mark the funeral of Queen Elizabeth II.
The provincial government has also announced that provincial public sector employers have been advised to honour this day in recognition of the obligations around federal holidays that exist in most provincial collective agreements.
Your employer has informed us that they will not be observing the holiday, and will be requiring all employees to report to work. You should attend work as directed by your employer. However, we do not agree with your employer’s interpretation of the collective agreement and are filing a grievance to have the matter resolved.
If you have any questions, please email Sara Colliss at firstname.lastname@example.org.
