What about sick leave and short-term disability?

There are no changes to the current sick leave provisions or to sick leave banks. The AJC has agreed to join a discussion table led by the Public Service Alliance of Canada with respect to considering an Employee Wellness Support Plan.  The table is to complete its mandate by December 31, 2021.  If consensus is reached, the expectation is that changes to sick leave may be made on consent in future rounds of bargaining.
