Other care employers must grant unpaid leave, establish an employment protocol, maintain benefits and pensions, and then allow the return to the same position "within a reasonable time" after the date of the injunction. Your other continuing care employers are required to maintain your group and pension benefits on this site in accordance with the terms of your collective agreement. You will be put on leave without pay and the terms of your contract will apply. The ministerial decree is silent on this subject and you must refer to your collective agreement. If these issues cannot be resolved, please call AUPE to speak to your membership Services Officer (MSO). Your other care employers are required to put you on leave until the end of the assignment – and to take a reasonable amount of time for the return. Some employers did not allow workers who were able to choose a single workplace to be put on leave. It is not clear how this provision can solve these problems. If this has happened to you, please call AUPE at 1-800-232-7284 to be logged into your Services Officer membership. The improvements to the order came from this committee.

They define a training site as: an auxiliary hospital, a nursing home or a designated supportive housing. Improved order provides greater protection for workers and recognizes the role of unions in protecting their members. Workers have the option of working overtime to compensate for the hours lost by these changes in their other care jobs. It also does not completely centralize staff and leaves a lot of control between separate suppliers instead of having a fully coordinated and controlled response from the provinces.
