Update on Policy Grievance re: Overtime for Relief and Part-time Deputy Sheriffs
Dear Relief and Part-time Deputy Sheriff members,
Update: We have filed a grievance regarding the Employer’s change in practice regarding overtime pay for Relief and Part-time Deputy Sheriffs.
Dates have been set for an adjudication hearing. They are scheduled for September 23rd and 24th, 2021.
Please note that this issue does not affect full-time permanent Deputy Sheriffs.
While we wait for a resolution to this dispute through the grievance process, the NSGEU strongly advises Relief and Part-time Employees to continue to submit for the appropriate overtime as per the collective agreement (the way you have always done). Please retain a personal copy of your hours to ensure you are compensated correctly when/if successful.
If your manager denies your overtime, please contact NSGEU and ask to speak to Employee Relations Officer Dustin Rioux, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank you very much.
