Isolated Post Allowance – for route holders and PREs who work in the Isolated Posts identified in the Urban Collective Agreement (Appendix H).

Leave Allowance (Marriage, birth, adoption, other reasons, court, personal selection, examination and career development) –Route holders and PREs who were at work for the period of Jan 1, 2016 to Dec 31, 2018 will receive an equal portion of the retroactive share of the value of these leaves, which amounts to $62.

BC Medical Insurance Plan Premium (clause 30.08 Urban Collective Agreement) – for route holders and PREs who lived in BC for the period of Jan 1, 2016 to Dec 31, 2018.
