This announcement is not intended to establish service or operating schedules in such divisions as the Central Library, ITS, or Facilities & Services, where announcements will be made separately.
In other areas, certain staff members may be required to maintain essential services or to provide service to the public. Those individuals required to work during holiday periods, should be granted compensating time off at a later date. Employees covered by collective agreements are subject to the provisions contained in their collective agreements.
Supervisors and administrators are requested to schedule holiday staffing arrangements, where required, as far in advance as possible, and are encouraged to consult their Divisional Human Resources Office.
Any questions about the alternative arrangements that should be made for non-unionized administrative staff members, who are required to work on a scheduled holiday, should also be directed to the Divisional Human Resources Office.
Questions regarding the application of the collective agreements for unionized staff should be directed to Human Resources at 416.978.6503.
We would be grateful if you would bring this schedule to the attention of all staff.
