Sick Leave, Credits, Union, Discrimination, Vacation, Benefits


At issue here is whether an employee can substitute sick leave for Union leave. The Grievor works part time in the Union Local office and is paid by the Union for that work. It is understood by the parties that such part-time Union employees depend on their time worked with the Employer to accumulate their sick and vacation leave credits which provide them with benefits if they work for the Employer at least 10 days a month. The Union alleges that practice was not followed when sick leave was denied to the Grievor and that she was treated in an arbitrary or discriminatory way.
