Many of us were affected by the massive storm that swung through the greater Ottawa region over the weekend. As you may have read in the memo from the college, the Ottawa campus is without power, and will remain closed for the remainder of the week (including Friday, May 27th).
We have confirmed with the college that Partial-Load members will continue to get paid during this time. You should enter your regular hours into Workday or fill in whatever timesheets you regularly fill in. If you experience any challenges, please reach out to the Local at firstname.lastname@example.org.
During the summer months, many of our Partial-Load members face reduced teaching hours, frequently meaning that they face financial difficulties. Local 415 has created a hardship fun that is available to assist members who have found themselves without contracts temporarily or who may need emergency funds (up to $250 per member). You can apply for the fund here.
