Policy, Attendance, Management, Program, Sections, Guidance, Amend


This is a policy grievance regarding the Employer's Attendance Management Program. The Union does not believe some sections conform with the Collective Agreement. The Employer is willing to accept guidance if some aspect of the Program is inconsistent with the Agreement.

The grievance succeeds in part. The grievance is dismissed except that the Employer is directed to amend the written policy to reflect the manner in which the policy is actually applied. Jurisdiction is retained to assist with the implementation of the award, if needed.
