Employees who work on a site, site or establishment affected by this agreement and who are asymptomatic, but recommended for self-isolation or self-isolation, are placed on special leave with a salary for all hours of work omitted up to a maximum of seventy-five hours (75) hours. Permanent workers are paid up to 75 (75) hours for all scheduled positions. If workers do not have symptoms and can work from home, the employer may require workers to do so during the period of self-isolation. Otherwise, workers with wages remain on special leave. If the individual has acute respiratory symptoms, special leave with pay will be reduced to sick leave, annual leave or sabbatical, instead of sick leave exhaustion. Because some collective agreements allow the use of advance lines, workers may benefit from this benefit under these collective agreements. 4. The redeployment of staff may be modified as required and, if possible, on a voluntary basis and/or in accordance with the provisions of their collective agreement. In order to facilitate the redistribution of staff between construction sites, qualified staff have the opportunity to work on a voluntary basis on site, on site or in the establishment, where additional staff are needed. If an insufficient number of workers are voluntarily made available, the employer may, if necessary, re-employ the staff. If travel and accommodation are required, employees are compensated in accordance with their collective agreements.
6. Seniority workers with temporary or permanent employment with the employer assigned to another bargaining unit because of the needs arising from the emergency, benefit, in accordance with the provisions of their original collective agreement, from the oldest seniority, unless they are normally dismissed. The employer will follow the collective agreement formula and current practice with respect to the recruitment of temporary and casual workers before employees are seconded out of the collective agreement unit. Prior to worker renewal, the employer ensures that all workers in the relevant bargaining unit, in the event of dismissal or recall, whose duties normally include the task, are offered the assigned work. A collective agreement is a written and binding contract between the Union and the employer, which sets out the terms of employment. The Manitoba Nurses Union is constantly sought to improve working conditions, wages and benefits through the negotiation of new collective agreements. The agreement defines the distribution of human resources in the health sector and how health care providers will be compensated and protected if we respond to COVID-19. Some benefits enjoyed by MNU members are not provided in the collective agreement, but are provided by pension boards and fiduciary allowances: the parties agree that the terms of this agreement apply to union bargaining units, sites, sites and institutions of the employer or other provisions of the employer. This contract ends with written notification from the employer. Such a written notification will not be made more than twenty-one (21) days after the end of the declared state of emergency. This agreement may be extended by mutual agreement between the parties.
