Hours of work
This policy applies to all regular non-unionized non-academic staff, with the exception of University Executives (“E”).
- Management (“M”) and non-unionized clerical (“C”) staff
The standard workweek for management and non-unionized clerical staff is 33.75 hours, Monday through Friday, and the standard workday is 6.75 hours. The daily schedule of hours is to be determined by the unit/department, and to include an unpaid lunch hour period of 1.25 hours each day.
- Non-unionized Technical and Library Assistant Staff
The standard workweek for non-unionized technical and library assistant staff is 35 hours, Monday through Friday. The standard workday is 7 hours, the daily schedule of hours to be determined by the unit/department and to include an unpaid lunch period of one hour each day.
It is possible to operate on flexible hours within the standard work hours with the approval of the appropriate Dean or Senior Administrative Department Head and Human Resources.
- Summer Fridays (Flex Days)
Summer Fridays (flex days) off result from a combination of a parity agreement (with Université de Montréal) and a 2.8% reduction in work hours in lieu of a salary increase. The summer Fridays (flex days) normally occur between La Fête Nationale (June 24) and Labour Day. The schedule of summer Fridays is announced to the University community in the preceding spring.
When a staff member takes vacation during the summer schedule, any Friday that falls into the vacation period will not count as a “vacation" day.
When it is necessary for a staff member to work on a summer Friday (flex day) morning, compensating time off or overtime pay on a straight time basis should be arranged. When it is necessary to work on a summer Friday (flex day) afternoon, compensating time off on a straight time basis, or overtime pay on a time-and-one half basis should be granted. Compensating time off shall be takenas agreed to with the immediate supervisor and if requested by the employee, and possible, the three (3) day weekend will be respected.
