In past campaigns, our achievements earned us two prestigious awards:
- the Outstanding Public Sector Joint Union-Management Campaign Spirit Award
- the Campaign Chair’s Award of Merit.
We should be particularly proud of the Award of Merit – we won it over all large Peel-based private-sector businesses
Alternate Flexible Work Schedule
Employees in some departments who have completed
their probation can apply to rearrange their
work schedules within a specific period. It

times other than traditional office hours without
negatively affecting the level or cost of service
and client satisfaction provided to Peel citizens.

every two or three weeks by working extended
hours on the remaining days.
Depending on their work location, employees can take up to one
day off for extra hours worked over a four-week
time period, separate from vacation or approved
"Open Door" Environment
The Region encourages open communication and
accessibility with initiatives such as the CAO Employee Focus Group, departmental advisory committees,
internal communication planning and through Pathways - the Region's Intranet site.
