Re Camp Hill Medical Centre and CBRT & GW, Local 606
Compensation, Premium Rate, Days of Rest, Management Rights, Clause, Redirect, Ambiguity, Estoppel
The Grievors allege that the Employer did not compensate them at the premium rate for working shifts on their scheduled days of rest. The Employer argues that under the management rights clause, they are able to redirect the workforce, in effect rescheduling employees' days off,and are not obligated to compensate such employees at the premium rate. Some ambiguity in the applicable clauses of the agreement are noted and the issue of estoppel is raised.
