PM #40065782 Labour Reporter Canadian January 2, 2018 Edmonton police officer grieves after being shut out of promotion A GUILTY plea for improperly storing a firearm was enough to deny an Edmonton police office from being considered for a pro- motion to sergeant. Constable Sam Najmeddine had worked at the Edmonton Po- lice Service since 2003 in various departments including acting ser- geant in three separate divisions. During the arbitration hearing, Najmeddine testified he was ad- vised on numerous occasions by senior officers to "run the squad WAREHOUSING Zenith Logistics St. Albert, Alta.

Vacations with pay: 1 day per Vancouver nurse denied special leave to provide care for ailing child at home Employer didn't believe sickness was 'serious' A NURSE working at a hospital in Vancouver was denied pay when she left work to care for her sick child. Elina Barsky had worked at St. Paul's Hospital since 2004 as a registered nurse when she received a frantic Friday morning call around 8 a.m. on Nov. 4, 2016. Her husband advised her that their 10-year-old daughter was feverish, had flu-like symptoms and was vomiting. Since Barsky was a nurse, she asked the charge nurse if she could go home and care for her daugh- ter. As there was another nurse working who could take over Barsky's duties, she was given per- mission to go home. Before she did, she made sure her patients were stable and waited for the other nurse to take over.
