February 8, 2012 - Pressing Necessity issue…We need our WCB Members’ input!
The Negotiating Committee has filed a Policy Grievance in order to challenge our employer’s interpretation of Article 18.1. However, in order to strengthen our argument against that decision, we need examples of individual WCB member situations where Pressing Necessity was denied beyond the current 3 day allowance. If this has occurred to you, please send your detailed example(s) to the attention of the WCB Negotiating Committee at union [at] wcbsask [dot] com
