​LETTER OF UNDERSTANDING #​​3 - 12 Hour Shifts - Kananaskis Emergency Service Centre 

​Pursuant to Article 3 of the Master Agreement the parties agree to administer Subsidiary Agreement 004 to allow a 12 hour shift rotation for this continuous operation. 

​1.

​​The parties agree that notwithstanding the provisions of sub clause 2.01 of Subsidiary Agreement 004, hours of work shall be administered as follows:

Employees assigned as Fire Prevention Officers will be required to work a combination of day and night shifts over the eight (8) week rotation as per the posted Kananaskis Emergency Service Centre roster. The normal hours of work shall be two (2) twelve (12) hour day shifts, followed by two (2) twelve (12) hour night shifts, followed by four (4) days off. Employees may be required to start on different weeks of the eight week rotation. 

2.

​The standard work week shall be considered to be 42 hours based on an eight (8) week rotation for Fire Prevention Officers assigned to Kananaskis Emergency Service Centre. In recognition of the additional hours required, a differential of 15.86 (fifteen point eighty-six) percent will be applied. This is calculated based on the hour differential 42/36.25. This additional amount should be considered part of their regular annual salary. 

​​3.
