What the UNA Contract says about Vacation Scheduling

According to the United Nurses of Alberta Provincial Collective Agreement, employees are now required to submit 75 per cent of their vacation entitlements for a year in the vacation schedule planner by March 15.

Article 17.03 of the contract states that the employer shall post the vacation schedule planner by Jan. 1 each year.

The employer shall indicate approval or disapproval of vacation requests submitted by March 15 and post the resulting vacation schedule by April 30 each year.

The employer has an obligation to provide guidance as to the reasonable number of employees for each unit, program or site who may be granted vacation at the same time.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your UNA local executive or Labour Relations Officer at 1-800-252-9394.
