As with public communications, researchers or scientists who disseminate or communicate information about research or the scientific media are subject to the Access to Information Act, the values and ethics code for the public sector adopted on April 2, 2012, and must comply with the Directive of the Board of Directors of Canada on the Management of Communications, unless it is contrary to the applicable collective agreements. To this end, the DDAA must have publication authorisation procedures compatible with the relevant collective agreements. Permission to publish is not inappropriately denied. 1.1.31 Severance pay and other benefits under other clauses of the collective agreement are separated from and added to the provisions of this Annex. Pilot projects will be launched within eight (8) months of the signing of this agreement. For greater certainty, severance pay for the abolition of the voluntary separation indemnity (resignation and retirement) is considered a severance pay for the application of this clause, in accordance with the provisions of 19.05 to 19.08, under Annex “J” or similar provisions in other collective agreements. 3.5. DDAA will record all cases of conflict or incompatibility between this Directive and the laws, collective agreements or policy instruments of the Board of Directors and/or DDAA policy instruments and submit such records as part of the performance evaluation provided for in Article 7.9 of this Directive. 35.02 Topics that may be considered appropriate for joint consultation shall be agreed upon by the Parties and shall include consultation on career development. The consultation may take place at local, regional or national level, as provided for in the Parties. 47.01 This agreement expires on December 21, 2022. A worker may be granted paid training leave without pay for different periods of up to one (1) year renewable by mutual agreement, in order to go to an approved institution for further or special studies in a field of education where specific preparation is required to fulfil his current role more appropriately or to carry out studies in a given field, to provide a service that the employer needs or intends to provide. You do your best every day in your workplace and for your family.
