EI Over the Christmas Break

READ THRU THE MESSAGE AND THEN GO TO THE EI PAGE

Good evening, happy last day of school until 2020!

On behalf of CUPE 3766 and your executive, I'd like to wish everyone a relaxing and rejuvenating break, we hope you get to spend time with your loved ones (children, family, and pets:), and you are all able to bring in 2020 just the way you want too! A member recently posted this on Facebook, I'd like to thank her, as these words are singing in my heart as a wish for all CUPE 3766 members:




“Be kind to yourself. Be proud of yourself, because you matter. What you do matters. You make a difference.”




I've not updated our membership email list for a while, so if there are members who did not get this information, please ask them to email me so I can include their emails to our group contact list.




I'm going to post all the attached documents to the end of this email as not everyone can open the attached files. The Christmas Break 2019 document are for members who are re-activating their current EI claim; the December 2019 OVERVIEW ON EI" is a document for members like me who have to start a new EI claim; and the 2019 Your responsibilities is for everyone who apply for EI.




I took a bit of time tonight to first apply for my personal EI claim. Unlike most members, I will be starting a new claim today. I'm glad that I spent the time to apply first, as a lot of our category names have changed, and the web-site looks a bit different. For the ones I noticed, I updated the language in our Update, Overview and Responsibilities documents as attached. They've also changed the applications forms again, as I was not even asked to report my last week of earnings....so go figure, they are constantly changing things to confuse applicants. Please remember if you have trouble with the questions and/or what information EI is requiring, there are boxes that have help links next to them, they are helpful, if you still have trouble, please call a colleague, or go to the EI office on Hamilton Street, or call the 1-800 number, they are closed on the weekend and holiday, but they are there to help you out!




Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

Applying for EI over the Christmas Break

If you are starting a new EI claim please review the attached “December, 2019 Overview on EI Benefits” for more information.

This update will apply for CUPE 3766 members who are re-activating/re-opening their previous EI claim.

You may be entitled to EI during the Christmas break as you are NOT paid for these days, other than the statutory holidays on Tuesday December 25 (Christmas) and Tuesday January 1 (New Year).

Please note that all regular EI rules apply. For example; you must inform EI if you leave the country and you must actively look for employment during your 10 day break. Actively looking for employment includes, updating your resume and/or spending time each day viewing and applying for jobs on line or at a job bank for example www.saskjobs.ca For more information on actively seeking employment, please review the attached document called, “2019 EI Your Responsibilities”.

These are EI rules, NOT CUPE 3766; we are trying to make this transition smooth for our members. This overview is for information purposes only, we are curious about the types of problems our members experience, but please remember, we are not EI experts. We are just trying to get through the process as you are.

For most of our members the last day of work is Friday December 20th, therefore you can re-activate/re-open your claim today.

You will need to know your hourly rate of pay and supervision pay prior to applying for EI benefits. This information can be found on your December 20th Atrieve Statement of Earnings & Deductions.

To re-activate/re-open your claim on-line go to http://www.servicecanada.gc.ca If you do not have access to a computer you can visit the EI office and use one of their computers. The office is located at 1783 Hamilton Street, Regina, S4P 2B6.

When asked, “Are you part of a group of employees in an Apprenticeship program, a Work-share program, a group layoff situation (including layoffs due to a natural disaster), or the automotive industry AND where you given a reference code to submit with this application? ”, please answer NO as we are no longer given reference codes.

When asked “Reason for Separation”, please click the box, “There was a shortage of work (includes layoff, end of contract or season and office closure)”.

When asked ROE Information – Last Employer, please click the box, “I have a paper Record of Employment and will submit it or have submitted it to Service Canada or my employer submitted the Record of Employment electronically.”

Please don’t forget to include all information regarding “Other employers”, you will be asked “In the last 52 weeks, did you have any other periods of work? (with the same employer or other employers)” You must give Service Canada any paper Records of Employment you received from employers in the last 52 weeks. This extra information helps determine your eligibility for EI. If you don’t inform EI of other employment and submit Records of Employment, they will find out and may disqualify your claim.

For most members our expected date for return to work is January 6th, 2020.

Please remember all income must be reported, including statutory holiday pay, regular pay and supervision pay.

Our casual/sub members receive vacation pay on a semi-monthly basis; the amount paid is found on your December 20th Atrieve Statement of Earnings, please report this amount.

For members who are in permanent or temporary/yearly contracts, you will not receive vacation pay until the anniversary date (the end of January, May and June); please do not report any vacation pay, as you have none to report as you are paid on an anniversary date.

If you worked the week of December 16-20, you’ll need to claim all money earned during this period. This includes any lunch and playground supervision. The rate of pay for lunch/playground supervision is $23.13 per hour.

The amount of your last week of earnings that EI automatically calculates for you may differ than the actual amount earned. The difference may be due to your supervision being a different rate of pay compared to your regular hourly rate of pay. If this is the case, then please click, “no” you do not agree with the amount and then clarify in the space provided as “supervision pay diff”

There are several different applications that EI randomly chooses for clients to use when re-activate/re-open their EI benefits. Depending on which one you get, you may be asked to report “Other Monies Information” during your application, if you are asked, report your statutory holiday pay for December 25 and January 1. If you are asked to report this during your re-opening/re-activation application, DO NOT report this income again when you file your EI report.

For members who are in permanent or temporary/yearly contracts, the amount of your December 25th (Christmas Day) statutory holiday pay can be found on your December 20th Atrieve Statements of Earnings. You can find this amount beside the category “STAT PAY”. Please report this amount.

Please remember that we do not get paid for Thursday December 26 (Boxing Day) as this is not a paid statutory holiday in our collective agreement.

For members who are in permanent or temporary/yearly contracts, you may ask how to report the amount of your January 1, New Year Day statutory holiday pay when you won’t get your January Atrieve Statement of Earnings until January 15th. The amount should be the same for your January 1st New Year Day statutory holiday pay as you reported for your Christmas Day statutory holiday pay.

For members who are Casual/Sub the calculation of your statutory holiday pay is different and is based on a percentage formula as per the Saskatchewan Employment Act. You should know your Christmas Day statutory pay and this amount will be shown on your December 20th Atrieve Statement of Earnings beside the category “STAT PAY”, please report this amount. You will not know the amount of statutory holiday pay amount you’ll receive for New Year Day until you see this amount on your January 15th Atrieve Statement of Earning. Please report that you will be receiving statutory holiday pay for New Year day. When asked for the amount, click the box that states, “I don’t know this amount”.

For all members, if you’re NOT asked to report your statutory holiday pay as “Other Monies Information” during your re-activation/re-opening application; you will need to report the statutory holiday pay after you receive your access code from EI, and you report your earnings for the week of December 22nd to December 28th. Report your December 25, Christmas day statutory holiday pay as “Other Monies Information”. Don’t forget to report your New Year Day statutory holiday pay for January 1st as “Other Monies Information” when your report your earnings for the week of December 29th to January 4th.

If you do not receive your access code from EI within 28 days, PLEASE CONTACT EI. Please don’t assume that EI has accepted your claim, if you have not heard from them within 28 days, call them, otherwise your claim may not be accepted as submitted. If you have problems, re-activating/re-opening or reporting your claim, do not hesitate to phone the EI office at 1-800-206-7218 and ask them for help. It is their job to help clients.

Only after you have filed your claim and if you are denied, disqualified, need to file an appeal or if you have been notified that you will not be receiving EI benefits, please contact Mark Crawford at uwhc.regina@sasktel.net Mark is an EI advocate for union members and has been a tremendous help to our members. Please note that Mark does not help with General Enquires such as; reporting, ROEs or if you are having trouble contacting EI. If you have any General Enquires concerns please go the EI office at 1783 Hamilton Street, Regina, S4P 2B6 or call them at 1-800-206-7218.

Merry Christmas and happy New Year!

IMPORTANT



v You are not engaged in the occupation of teaching regardless of what you may be told by EI Representatives.



v Do not pick any item from the drop down menus that says you are a teacher or are teaching or have been teaching in the past.



v On the application answer NO to the question: Have you taught any part of the school curriculum at any of the following levels in the last 2 years?



v If you are denied benefits over the question regardless if you do any teaching or not, you should file an appeal and/or contact Jackie immediately.



For members who are permanent or temporary/yearly contract, you may be entitled for EI regular benefits during the Christmas, February, Easter and summer break as you are NOT paid for these days, other than your statutory holidays. It may seem like you are being paid for this time as you are receiving your regular monthly pay. Please remember we are paid for a set amount of days per school year, our statutory holiday pay is included in the set amount. The totaled amount of days is divided by our ten pay periods/months. This is why we are paid the same amount each month. The only amount of pay that varies is your paid supervision. What this means is that you are considered lay off due to a shortage of work during the Christmas, February, Easter and summer breaks. This is why you may be entitled to EI benefits during those times. You must be ready, willing and available to work during the all breaks if you’re claiming EI benefits. You are required to be actively looking for work during all breaks of employment.



Please note that all regular EI rules apply. For example:



· You must inform EI if you leave the country while claiming EI benefits.

· You must actively look for employment during all breaks. This includes:

§ preparing a resume or cover letter

§ register for job search tools or with electronic job banks or employment agencies

§ attending job search workshops or job fairs

§ contacting prospective employers

§ submitting job applications

§ attending interviews

§ undergoing evaluations of competencies

· Please remember to keep a detailed record as proof of your job search efforts (date, time, details) as EI may ask you to provide that proof at any time. These records must be kept for up to 6 years.

· If you are instructed to go to an EI Client Information Session, you must attend the session. Please bring you’re your active job search with you for the meeting. If you are instructed to go to an EI Client Information Session and have already returned to work, please contact the number on your notification letter and inform them that you’ve already returned to work. Please document the name of the person you talk to for your personal records, just in case you need to reference this conversation at a later date.



CUPE Local 3766 do not make the rules, we are only trying to make this a smooth process for our members. This overview is for informational purposes only, we would like to know the types of roadblocks our member’s experience, but please remember- we are not EI experts. We are just trying to get through the same process as you are.



If you have any problems, do not hesitate to phone the EI office and ask them for help. Their number is 1-800-206-7218. If you are not able to contact EI on the phone please go to the EI office at 1783 Hamilton Street, Regina. It is their job to help clients.

Thursday November 14: New Bargaining Meeting Date

To provide a bit of a bargaining update, as indicated in my last email to the members, I did have a video made regarding our bargaining facts and fiction. To date, I have not been given a copy of the video to share with the members. The holdup is with CUPE National, and until they give me a copy of the video, there is nothing I can share. In addition I’ve worked on a two page Bargaining facts and fiction document to supplement the video. I am still in the process of working on getting our message on electronic bill boards; I hope to have the contract signed this week. Our message is NO worker is worth zero! We are not worth less than other CUPE Education Support workers in Saskatchewan! We are not worth less than our employers! Our schools work because we do!

I hope to see you on Tuesday and/or Wednesday and/or Thursday!

Cupe Sask Media Advisory

September 24, 2019FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Media Advisory:

CUPE’s request to present at Regina Public School Board meeting ignored; workers to protest outside(Regina)CUPE education workers will be picketing the Regina Public School Board meeting instead of presenting workers’ bargaining concerns inside.On September 9, CUPE locals 650 and 3766 submitted a written request to present their bargaining concerns at the September 24 board meeting in closed session. To date, the locals have received no acknowledgement from the board.“Our members work hard for the school division, and it is shameful that we are being ignored,” said Jackie Christianson, president of CUPE Local 3766. “If the school board won’t let us have a seat at their table to hear our concerns, then we’ll be on the streets demanding a fair deal.” Bargaining continues to be strained between the board and CUPE locals 650 and 3766. Both locals have a strike mandate from their membership, and recent bargaining dates have been less than fruitful.The lack of response from the school board echoes one of the issues at the bargaining table.“The employer is proposing removing Step 3 from the grievance process, which would remove our ability to present our members’ grievances to them,” added Christianson. “It is concerning that they are pushing this particular concession, while also ignoring our request for a bargaining presentation to hear our concerns. Why would they not want to hear from their employees?” WHERE:Regina Public School Board Office1600 4th Avenue WHEN:4:45 p.m. (The board meeting starts at 5:30 p.m.)CUPE represents close to 7,000 education support workers across the province, including support staff at the Regina Public School Board

The form gives you options into paying or not paying for the following benefits: Pension, LTD, Extended Health & Dental and Life Insurance.

It's important to factor in that some of these benefits are very expensive, in particular on a reduced income. However, a few of the benefits are relatively in-expensive, for example the LTD and life Insurance Benefits.

You may choose not pay into these benefits due to your current situation, but if your situation changes; you may require one of these benefits and will no longer have an option of accessing the benefits. Once you choose to not pay into your benefits, your decision is final.

Please contact your Shop Steward, Jackie Christianson or Jo-ann Hincks (306-523-3034) if you require assistance in making decisions on your benefits.

Personal E-mail Loop and Shop Stewards: A Message from President Jackie Christianson

We are starting new with the personal email loop again. There are several new members in our system and several members who have resigned/retired. It is very difficult keeping up with these changes without your help!

Could one person in each school please check with our members in their school and ask if I have their email address? If our members do not wish to give out their personal email address, please make a list of their names and the email addresses you that you were able to get from our members and forward this information on to me at jackiechristianson@myaccess.ca

This seems to be the most effective way to communicate, along with our web-site, and then everyone should be informed of important information. Hope everyone is having a "smooth transition" into the new school year. Please let your shop stewards know if there are any concerns you have. They are very willing to help!

For a new list of shop stewards and their schools/email addresses, please check your school bulletin board for the list and/ or our web-site at www.cupe3766.com. Click on the "shop stewards" box. I really appreciate your help in this matter!
