I'm not sure why it's worded that way, but as a ford you have the option to rotate to a different department after your first term, so maybe it's worded that way assuming that you don't stay with your department for the full 2 years? I would definitely check with your HR for clarity. Sometimes it's just a simple mistake on the part of whoever wrote your letter of offer. It's happened once for me where they paid me at a higher step because they copied the rate of pay incorrectly.
for benefits, I'm assuming you're talking about healthcare (sunlife) and dental (greatwestlife)?: https://www.canada.ca/en/treasury-board ... rvice.html
for vacation you can look here, but keep in mind that a new collective bargaining agreement has been reached and therefore this is outdated, but as of right now, it's the latest collective bargaining agreement that we have: http://www.acfo-acaf.com/wp-content/upl ... eement.pdf This also means that the pay rates are out of date, and we'll be receiving back pay or retro pay when the new CBA is signed by TB.
Anyways can you tell me more about the option to rotate to a different department after my first term? How long is a term and will FORD candidates get reminded / have the option to pick which department?
With the new collective bargaining agreement, does that mean the salaries on the pay grid are increasing? (I think by 1.25% from the new tentative agreement?)
