To All Local 88 Production Members November 9, 2023


As stated in previous memo’s the vacation calendar is getting close to being fully booked from March to June. We still have many members with greater than 32 hours of vacation remaining to be scheduled.

This notice is for 32 vacation hours or greater that are not scheduled.

The company is going to cease accepting vacation bookings starting December 1. Any outstanding vacation of 32 hours or greater will then be scheduled on mass by the company. These weeks will likely be centered around the January/February time frame during the layoffs, where vacation allotments are not restricted.
A list will be provided in December/January showing who has vacation forced into which down weeks so that your EI reporting is not an issue.

If you still have vacation to book, please contact your department:
Assembly –
Welding –
Paint –
Materials –
Quality –

Please be aware that if your pay stub shows $0 for SUB on Tuesday Nov 14th not to panic, you will still be paid your SUB on Thursday Nov 16th. Service Canada is closed on Monday to observe Remembrance Day, therefore the SUB office will not receive the EI data until Tuesday morning.
