Hello, An employer can require that an employee attend training. However, the employer must pay the employee for their attendance at the same rate of pay applicable to their employment contract (which in your case, would be the union contract). I hope I've answered your question. Please let me know if you require further clarification. And, please provide a positive feedback rating for my answer -- otherwise, I receive nothing for my efforts in your behalf.Thanks again for using!
