PM #40065782 Labour Reporter Canadian February 11, 2019 10 air force base employees lament after jobs reclassified AFTER ADJUSTMENTS were made at a Goose Bay, N.L., Cana- dian Forces air base, 10 employ- ees were shifted into different categories and saw their pay rates decline. On Sept. 23, 2016, Serco Can- ada was awarded a new contract, but operations were scaled back due to a lower rate of activity around the base. Twenty-nine employees were permanently laid off, while others were reclassified. Jonathan Cull, for example, New Brunswick seniors' home worker grieves after employer refuses reinstatement after leave A REGISTERED attendant (RA) at the Roc- maura Nursing Home in Saint John, N.B., went on education leave, but then decided she wanted to return to her job early. Chantelle Dezainde worked at the home in a permanent part-time basis. In July 2016, she left to attend the office-administration program at the Nova Scotia Community College as a full-time student. Dezainde's expected return date was June 30, 2017. But in October, Dezainde advised Kim Roberts, director of nursing, that she had insufficient funds to continue her schooling and she wished to re- turn to Rocmaura. A meeting was held on Oct. 26, but many "men- tal-health issues" were brought up by Dezainde, according to Roberts, which made her later ques- tion if Dezainde was ready to return. In a letter sent to Dezainde on Nov. 2, Rob- erts expressed concern: "After listening to your INDUSTRIAL GASES Linde Canada Nisku, Alta.
