Vacation Leave

Whether you choose to take a trip to a tropical paradise or spend some quality time with your family and friends, it’s important that you take some time away from work to relax and recharge.

Entitlements for employees are contained in collective agreements and employee handbooks including:

Collective Agreement with the UNW:

Scheduling Vacation

Are you counting how many "sleeps" until your next scheduled break? It's completely normal. In fact, it's expected that all employees will schedule their earned vacation days and take them accordingly. Each work unit has different operational requirements and processes for scheduling vacation. So talk with your manager or supervisor about how and when to schedule earned time off.
