ECC - Paid "Influenza" Leave

Company Policy on influenza recently changed. This is another union success.

Union members were concerned that teachers with legitimate illnesses were disadvantaged by ECC’s evaluation system. Another major concern was that teachers who followed their doctor’s orders and company policy were placed in a disadvantageous position.

 In most cases, teachers contract influenza from students. Why should they be penalized for a workplace caused illness? The union’s stance was that this was a case of worker’s compensation.

As a result of negotiations, ECC has changed policy this year and now pays 60% for certified cases of influenza.
