You have a say in how to use your outstanding annual leave

You have a say in how you use up the remainder of your annual leave entitlement for fiscal year 2010-11, whether you take the time in days off or get a payout from CBC. Unlike any unused time-off-in-lieu you may have earned in 2010, which is automatically paid out at the end of the fiscal year, CBC management cannot unilaterally pay out your earned annual leave.

Nothing in the collective agreement limits how much annual leave you can carry over from one year to the next; however, an employee must get agreement from management to carry over annual leave. If you prefer to take your accumulated time as leave, you must work with your manager to schedule it.

Management cannot unilaterally decide when and how you use your annual leave entitlement. According to our collective agreement, a manager must “meet with the employee to discuss the assignment or scheduling of accrued annual leave. Every effort will be made to schedule such leave in a manner that is satisfactory to both parties.” However, the Corporation does have the ultimate right to schedule unused leave if you don’t reach an agreement with your manager over timing. See Article 68 for more details.
