Know Your Rights - Rest, Meal Periods and Overtime for YG Members

Your Collective Agreement (aka your contract) spells out your rights in the workplace. It is not always easy to understand as the collective agreement often uses legal language and some articles must be read together in order to get full answers. 

In this 90-minute Zoom session, we'll cover rest periods (breaks) and meal periods and how overtime works when you are required to work through your breaks. Unions negotiated paid periods to allow workers to rest and recharge. We know the body and mind need these breaks yet with understaffing, many members feel compelled to work through these rest periods. 

By the end of the session, you'll feel more comfortable navigating your contract, understand your rights around paid and unpaid rest and meal periods, and know what to do when your rights are not being respected.
