Hertz (YVR) – Policy Grievance – National Day of Mourning
October 4, 2022
To: All MoveUP members at Hertz
I write to inform you that a policy grievance has been filed against your employer for their failure to recognize the National Day of Mourning on September 19, 2022 as a holiday. Your collective agreement states under Article 23.01 “and any other day that may be stated a gazetted public holiday by the Provincial Government and/or Federal Government or as passed by Order in Council.” Our interpretation is that September 19 should have been recognized, and thus a policy grievance was filed.
I will keep you up to date on the status of the grievance as it progresses. If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call me at 604-838-6213
