a) Labour relations or employee negotiations

RECOMMENDATION EPSC-3-2005:

Whereas section 20 of the Employment Standards Act, S.O. 2000, c 41, requires employers to give employees meal breaks totaling 30 minutes in each five hour period of a work shift;

And whereas, the Region of Peel and its employees in the Paramedic Service, through collective bargaining, have come to an agreement that facilitates meal breaks for employees while maintaining essential emergency medical services in a service area with one of the highest proportions of emergency calls in the Province of Ontario;

And whereas, the Ministry of Labour has interpreted the requirements of the Employment Standards Act in a way that would not respect the freely bargained provisions of the collective agreement and would require the taxpayers of Peel Region to add approximately 26,000 hours of service at a cost of $3.6 million just to cover meal breaks with no improvement in service and no additional funding from the Province of Ontario;

And whereas, estimates of the costs to be incurred across Ontario as a result of the implementation of the meal break provisions as interpreted by the Ministry of Labour total $34 million;

And whereas, prior to the downloading of Ambulance Services to municipalities, Paramedics were Crown Employees and exempt from the meal break provision of the Employment Standards Act;

And whereas, Police Officers are also exempt from the meal break provisions of the Employment Standards Act;

Therefore be it resolved, that the Government of the Province of Ontario be requested to immediately pass regulations exempting the "ambulance workers" as defined in the Ambulance Services Collective Bargaining Act, 2001, S.O. 2001, c. 10. from the meal break provisions of the Employment Standards Act;

And further, that the Association of Municipalities of Ontario (AMO), the Association of Municipal Emergency Medical Services of Ontario (AMEMSO); the Large Urban Mayors Caucus of Ontario (LUMCO) and all municipal ambulance service providers and designated delivery agents in Ontario be requested to endorse this resolution;

And further, that this resolution be strongly communicated to the Premier of Ontario, the Minister of Finance, the Minister of Health and Long Term Care, the Minister of Labour and all Peel Area MPPs.
