What is your shift exchange policy at your work place? Can you submit shift exchange request for any dates or only in specific time limits  (3 month? 6 month?). What might happened if you already worked your partner’s shift but he/she is unable to work yours due to changing job location?

We can do shift swaps within a couple of months but the actual shift swap days must be within 2 pay periods

On my unit we can swap shifts within the same pay period as long as no OT or 4 shifts in a row is involved.

Your best bet is to contact your union for clarification.

In BC it's up to 3-6 months depending on your unit and if you need to do it urgently (within 1 week) you need to personally ask your manager for approval
