Union grievance dated June 27, 2000, alleging breach of Article 9.02(d) of the Collective Agreement between the Employer and the Union effective November 1, 1997 - October 31, 2000, in that after employees go on extended sick leave the Employer continues to reduce the sick leave credits in their sick leave banks by 100 per cent instead of 75 per cent for each hour they would otherwise have worked. The Union requested an order that sick leave credits reduced contrary to the Collective Agreement be restored to each employee's sick leave bank.
