On November 1, 2014, the Public Service Labour Relations and Employment Board (PSLREB) was created. The PSLREB was created when the Public Service Labour Relations Board (PSLRB) and the Public Service Staffing Tribunal (PSST) merged. This PSLRB website is in the process of being phased out in favour of the new PSLREB website. During a period of transition, this PSLRB website will continue to provide archived reports, decisions, and transitional information. Please visit the new PSLREB website for the most recent content.

Compensation – Standby pay – De facto requirement – Remedy – Technical Services Group bargaining unit
The grievor grieved his employer’s decision to not pay him standby pay – the adjudicator found that the employer had not specifically identified the grievor for standby duty – however, the grievor was, on a balance of probabilities, subject to a de facto standby requirement – the employer breached the collective agreement – the grievor was entitled to standby pay beginning 25 days before his grievance was filed until the employer clearly indicated to him that he was not on standby duty.
Grievance allowed in part.
