(g) temporary posts may not exceed one year, unless this is provided for in Article 1.22 or by mutual agreement between the Union and the employer. (d) local agreements for the performance of twelve (12) hours of work generally correspond, with modifications adapted to needs, to the standard extended working arrangement described as follows: 3. The hourly market adjustment rate shall be added to the maximum hourly rate (step 5) of the collective agreement. Hourly rates for the first and second phases, etc., are calculated by maintaining the same percentage between Stage 1 and Stage 2 and between Stage 2 and Stage 3, etc., as provided for in the collective agreement. Where a ranking is added to a market complement in accordance with the note of the market understanding letter, the market adjustment shall be added after the market complement. A worker who is recalled from his leave is paid twice (2x) of his standard rate for all hours worked. At the end of the work to which the employee has been recalled, the employee may resume and complete the remainder of the scheduled days of leave or, by mutual agreement, postpone unused leave to a later date. The employer shall deduct the introductory costs, predispositions and monthly contributions from the salaries of each employee covered by this Agreement. Deductions are made no later than the last payment period of each month and are transferred to the HSAS provincial office within two (2) weeks after deduction or on the 15th of the following month.
Workers who were previously subject to collective agreements that provide for increased vacation pay in the event of dismissal or retirement are covered in the #3 compensation letter.
