The Employer and the Association agree that the following conditions shall apply to employees for whom variable hours of work schedules are approved pursuant to the relevant provisions of this Agreement. This Agreement is modified by these provisions to the extent specified herein.
It is agreed that the implementation of any such variation in hours shall not result in any additional expenditure or cost by reason only of such variation.
C.01 General Terms
The scheduled hours of work of any day as set forth in a work schedule, may exceed or be less than the regular workday hours specified by this Agreement; starting and finishing times, meal breaks and rest periods shall be determined according to operational requirements as determined by the Employer and the daily hours of work shall be consecutive.
For shift workers such schedules shall provide that an employee's normal workweek shall average the weekly hours per week specified in this Agreement over the life of the schedule. The maximum life of a schedule shall be six (6) months.
For day workers, such schedules shall provide that an employee's normal workweek shall average the weekly hours per week specified in this Agreement over the life of the schedule. The maximum life of a schedule shall be twenty-eight (28) days.
Whenever an employee changes his or her variable hours or no longer works variable hours, all appropriate adjustments will be made.
C.02 Conversion of Days to Hours
The provisions of this Agreement which specify days shall be converted to hours.
Notwithstanding the above, in clause 21.02, Bereavement Leave with Pay, a "day" will have the same meaning as the provisions of the collective agreement.
Where the Agreement specifies a workweek, a day shall be converted to seven decimal five (7.5) hours.
Effective the date on which this article applies to an employee, the accrued leave credits shall be converted from days to hours.
A change to the normal weekly hours of work for an employee will require that the accrued hourly credits be reverted to days and recalculated at the changed conversion rate.
Effective the date on which this article ceases to apply to an employee, the accrued vacation, sick leave and lieu day credits shall be converted from hours to days.
C.04 Leave – General
When leave is granted, it will be granted on an hourly basis and the hours debited for each day of leave shall be the same as the hours the employee would normally have been scheduled to work on that day.
All leave provisions which specify days in this Agreement shall be converted to hours with one (1) day being equal to seven decimal five (7.5) hours.
C.05 Specific Application
For greater certainty, the following provisions shall be administered as provided herein:
"Daily rate of pay" – shall not apply.
Overtime compensation referred to in clause 30.04 of this Agreement shall only be applicable on a normal day for hours in excess of the employee's daily scheduled hours of work.
(a) designated paid holiday shall account for the normal daily hours specified by this Agreement.
(b) an employee works on a Designated Paid Holiday, the employee shall be compensated, in addition to the normal daily hours' pay specified by this Agreement, according to Article 20 provisions for compensation on a designated holiday.
Employees shall earn vacation at the rates prescribed for their years of service as set forth in the specific article of this Agreement. Leave will be granted on an hourly basis and the hours debited for each day of vacation leave shall be the same as the employee would normally have been scheduled to work on that day.
Employees shall earn sick leave credits at the rate prescribed in Article 22 of this Agreement. Leave will be granted on an hourly basis and the hours debited for each day of sick leave shall be the same as the employee would normally have been scheduled to work on that day.
The qualifying period for acting pay as specified in clause 27.08 shall be converted to hours.
On exchange of shifts between employees, the Employer shall pay as if no exchange had occurred.
The provision in this Agreement relating to the minimum period between the termination and commencement of the employee's next shift shall not apply to an employee subject to variable hours of work.
D.01 A Penological Factor Allowance shall be payable to incumbents in some positions in the bargaining unit which are in Correctional Service Canada, subject to the following conditions.
D.02 The Penological Factor Allowance is used to provide additional compensation to an incumbent of a position who, by reason of duties being performed in a penitentiary, as defined in the Corrections and Conditional Release Act as amended from time to time, assumes additional responsibilities for the custody of inmates other than those exercised by the Correctional Group.
D.03 The payment of the allowance for the Penological Factor is determined by the designated security level of the penitentiary as determined by the Correctional Service of Canada. For those institutions with more than one (1) designated security level (i.e. multi-level institutions), the PFA shall be determined by the highest security level of the institution.
D.05 Penological Factor Allowance shall only be payable to the incumbent of a position on the establishment of, or loaned to, Correctional Staff Colleges, Regional Headquarters, and National Headquarters, when the conditions described in clause D.02 above are applicable.
D.06 The applicability of PFA to a position and the position's level of PFA entitlement shall be determined by the Employer following consultation with the bargaining agent.
D.07 Except as prescribed in clause D.10 below, an employee shall be entitled to receive PFA for any month in which he or she receives a minimum of ten (10) days' pay in a position(s) to which PFA applies.
D.08 Except as provided in clause D.09 below, PFA shall be adjusted when the incumbent of a position to which PFA applies, is appointed or assigned duties in another position to which a different level of PFA applies, regardless of whether such appointment or assignment is temporary or permanent, and for each month in which an employee performs duties in more than one position to which PFA applies, the employee shall receive the higher allowance, provided he or she has performed duties for at least ten (10) days as the incumbent of the position to which the higher allowance applies.
D.09 When the incumbent of a position to which PFA applies, is temporarily assigned a position to which a different level of PFA, or no PFA, applies, and when the employee's basic monthly pay entitlement in the position to which he or she is temporarily assigned, plus PFA, if applicable, would be less than his or her basic monthly pay entitlement plus PFA in his or her regular position, the employee shall receive the PFA applicable to his or her regular position.
D.10 An employee will be entitled to receive PFA, in accordance with the PFA applicable to his or her regular position:
(a) during any period of paid leave up to a maximum of sixty (60) consecutive calendar days,
(b) during the full period of paid leave where an employee is granted injury-on-duty leave with pay because of an injury resulting from an act of violence from one or more inmates.
D.11 PFA shall not form part of an employee's salary except for the purposes of the following benefit plans:
D.12 If, in any month, an employee is disabled or dies prior to establishing an entitlement to PFA, the PFA benefits accruing to the employee or the employee's estate shall be determined in accordance with the PFA entitlement for the month preceding such disablement or death.
