Basic Agreement
Letter 16: Persons Hired For Vacation Relief

Item 16 - Persons Hired For Vacation Relief



Notwithstanding the provisions of Section 7 of the Basic Agreement, persons hired for summer relief will not acquire service and may be terminated by the Company at any time. It is agreed that the termination of a person hired for vacation relief will not be subject to the grievance and arbitration procedures.

In addition, persons hired as summer relief will not be eligible to participate in the Group Insurance Program.

In the event that a former employee with recall rights is hired as vacation relief, it shall be understood that his hiring is not the result of a permanent vacancy under Clause 7.10, and therefore he will not be considered to have been recalled under the provisions of Section 7. Such former employee will be eligible to participate in the Group Insurance Plan, notwithstanding the other provisions of this Letter, as of his hiring date under this Letter. In the event that he is subsequently recalled and rehired under Clause 7.11, his service shall include service during any period of employment as vacation relief.

Notwithstanding the terms of this Item, where former employees with recall rights to other plants are hired as vacation relief, it will be the policy of the Company that they are eligible to participate in the Group Insurance Program as of their hiring date as vacation relief.

In the event that a vacation relief employee is hired under the terms of Clause 7.02 in the same year, such employee shall accumulate continuous service from the date of hiring as a vacation relief employee in that calendar year, less any periods of layoff. Note: Continuous service will only be recognized once the employee has completed the probationary period.

It is understood that persons hired for vacation relief will be limited to the week beginning the first Sunday in June to the week beginning the third Sunday in September unless mutually agreed between the parties. Persons hired for vacation relief may be required for training prior to the first Sunday in June provided there are no employees on layoff.
