As you are aware, the 2009 absenteeism target has been achieved.
As a result, lump sum incentive payments will be issued in accordance with the language set out in Appendix COR7, paragraph 5a(i) of the Correctional Bargaining Unit Collective Agreement.
The target incentive payments will be calculated at two (2) per cent of an employee's straight time salary for hours worked from March 12, 2009 (ratification date of OPSEU Correctional Bargaining Unit Collective Agreement) to December 31, 2009. As the incentive payment calculation is based on hours worked during this time period, it does not include paid or unpaid leaves (including sick leave). However, overtime hours worked during this period will be included the incentive payment calculation. For example, one hour of overtime worked will represent one hour worked for the purposes of calculating the target incentive payment. Should you have any questions regarding this matter, please contact your manager. Congratulations on the achievement of the 2009 absenteeism target.
