The fact is all provinces in Canada casuals get paid for stat holidays, the contracts are online, here is a summary.In lieu of holiday pay, stat pay and benefits<
PEI 12%, NS 11%, Newfoundland/Labrador20%, New Brunswick 13% BC 12.2%
Ontario Sask and Ontario all give EFTof 4.8, 4.62% or whatever it is in their prov and pays increments for holidays based on hours worked up to 12% in some places. Manitoba pays 6% vacation pay on each check and that is it. 0% for stats. I have notices their def of casual is someone who has no regular schedule and is booked to work only with the employees permission.
Ours states a nurse who works occasionally for unforseen shortage ofr pt or ft On our critical care unit they have had posters for us to help them out more.
In the 90's the def might of been acurate, and the benefits missed minute, , I work aprox .7, all shifts, last minute etc. The benefits missed for stat pay(basic ones which a cashier would get ),is alot of money, and the hosp a benefiting from that. It would not affect your job security at all. Many nurses casual at a second job, why for less. Also I pay the same rate of dues, and pay the max. yearly amount too. I support many things that only benefit the other categories. The fact is I am a vulnerable minority, that isnt even defined correctly, as we arent even worth that I guess. Anyways my unit is supportive as is my Manager. Our educator has worked across the country and is suprised how we are regarded. She says in some places you take care of the casuals and you get your days off etc.
Remember I work what is left over.
