Weekend (cf. Articles 1.09 and 12.15)
Residents are entitled to two weekends off per 28-day period. The weekend begins at 5 pm on Friday and ends at 10 pm on Sunday. Nevertheless, a resident whose daily work schedule ends after 5 pm but before 8 pm is not deemed to have worked that weekend. Furthermore, if the resident takes vacation, the weekend extends from 5 pm on Friday to 8 am on Monday. This applies to both the weekend before and the weekend following the vacation. Finally, the collective agreement also stipulates that a resident may not be on call more than two weekends in a row.
