The purpose of sick leave is intended to provide employees with a degree of protection against income loss where the employee is prevented, by illness or injury, from performing the employee’s normal employment duties.  

Article G.20 (see page 139 of the Collective Agreement) outlines how sick leave is accumulated and deducted, and the variety of medical leaves available to members. If you have any questions about how sick leave can be used that is not explained in the article, please contact Gavin Slade Kerr at
