Employee Grievance, Collective Agreement, Overtime, Holiday, Pyramiding


The Grievor claims she was paid less than her entitlement, under overtime and holiday provisions of the agreement, for 11 hours of work on a statutory holiday. The Grievor seeks compensation based on overtime and holiday pay premiums for the holiday hours worked. The Employer denies entitlement to any overtime pay premium where an employee has already been compensated with holiday pay, arguing that such premiums constitute pyramiding, in the absence of specific terms in the agreement.
