  • Paid Leave (Christmas) Articles 10.4 and 12.10
    • Articles 10.4 and 12.10 of the Collective Agreement provide M&P staff paid time off for the three days between Boxing Day and New Year’s Day. This is typically granted to M&P in recognition of significant hours of work over and above the usual job requirements. UBC HR also notes that “it may also be provided as a form of recognition for other contributions of these staff members.” M&P staff are encouraged to have a conversation with their supervisor in advance to ensure this paid leave. If a reasonable compromise cannot be reached, the AAPS member is encouraged to contact the AAPS Office for further advice and support.
