Nearly 700 employees working in P.E.I. public schools are represented by the Canadian Union of Local Public Employees 3260. Local president Carolyn Vandale said the union had been in contact with staff at the public school branch over the weekend. None of the union presidents stated that the different wage scales were contrary to the provisions of the union agreement for temporary agency workers. The CUPE 3324 collective agreement allows for a limited number of days of emergency leave, Woodbury said. But, he added, members who have traveled abroad may have to be put on sick leave during the 14 days of self-attendance. Olford told the Guardian that federal employees returning from trips abroad since March 8 are being asked for 14 days in a car, in accordance with guidelines from the P.E.I. Public Health Office. Olford said, however, that a provision in the union`s collective agreement, known as ”leave of absence” or code 699, is used to allow people who cannot work due to quarantine to continue receiving their wages. Then you can request that the one-week wait be lifted by calling the government toll-free number at 1-833-381-2725. Applicants typically need a medical certificate and job registrations, although the new rules allow quarantine workers to apply without the first ones.
