Member Wins Union Leave Dispute!
SEIU-West is pleased to share another wonderful win this week! A member was recently denied union leave to take part in an SEIU-West educational. The member got in contact with the MRC and they were advised to file a grievance. The employer quickly approved the union leave without any further delay.
If you have any questions about your rights under your collective agreement – like your right to access union leave – remember to call the MRC (Member Resource Centre) at 1.888.999.7348 ext. 2298 (toll free province-wide).
There are a lot of educational’s coming up, check out www.seiuwest.ca/education for more information.
Period poverty describes the struggle faced by women and girls who cannot afford the cost of menstrual products, like pads or tampons. Having a period is a regular occurrence for 50% of the population; however for those who cannot afford basic sanitary supplies, it can become a monthly ordeal that limits their ability to go to school or work. Access to period products is a necessity, yet 1 in 3 Canadian women have sacrificed something else to buy pads or tampons.
The 3sHealth Employee Benefits team is proud to release a new section on 3sHealth.ca to help plan members find the information they need more easily.
