Reminder to casual employees under Nurses, Facilities and Community Collective Agreements to ensure they pick up and work the minimum required casual hours.
Per collective agreement language, six month notification letters will be sent shortly to all casual employees covered by the Facilities Collective Agreement (FBA), Community Collective Agreement (CBA) and Nurses Provincial Collective Agreement (NBA) who have not yet worked half the minimum required hours in the year. The six month letter is a notification letter and not a termination letter. All casuals will receive this letter if they have not worked at least half the minimum required hours to date in 2017.
Collective agreement language under the NBA requires all casual employees in Fraser Health to work a minimum of 300 hours in the 2017 calendar year to maintain casual status. In previous years, language in the NBA required casuals to work a minimum of 225 hours in the calendar year.
For casual employees under the Facilities and Community collective agreements, they will continue to be required to work a minimum of 225 hours in the 2017 calendar year.
