Schedule B of the Collective Agreement has provisions for paid sick time for sessional staff. However, these provisions are limited and may not be sufficient to accommodate illness due to COVID-19.
The Faculty Association and the Governors of the University of Calgary have agreed to provide sick time to sessional academic staff (with Fall 2021 appointments) who become ill with COVID-19. Sessional academic staff who become ill with COVID-19 will continue to receive full salary and applicable benefits for the duration of their illness, or until the expiry of the Fall 2021 term.
For more information or concerns, please contact the Faculty Association by emailing Faculty.Association@tucfa.com or calling (403) 220-5722.
