The Union does not reimburse for lost overtime opportunities or pay additional wages if the Course is on a member's day(s) off. Auxiliary or on-call Stewards should let their scheduler know that, should work become available, the Steward should be notified so that the Union office can be contacted and a Union-paid Leave of Absence Form obtained. The Steward should incur no loss of earnings.
