Operational Requirements Link
We are seeing Operational Requirements used more and more as an excuse to deny leave. Budget cuts = operational requirements= leave denial. It is simply untrue. The precedence has been set many times, that the Federal Government cannot use cost as a reason to deny collective agreement rights. Please ensure that during the upcoming year, if Management begins to unilaterally deny members their rights without cause or reason just because it will require calling in others on overtime for example, that it is brought up with them and a member of your Manitoba Executive.
