I appreciate you setting the record straight and broadening my perspective on the matter. I thought the collective agreement I worked under had provision for covering search&rescue, but I no longer have a copy to check.
For sure, some government workers definitely get a per diem rate for SAR. I don't know whether it is the same as they would get paid at work, but when I was in Nelson SAR, there were definitely folks getting paid for going out on calls during work time.
I'm curious what your position was and who these government workers are who got per diems. I've been in SAR for about 8 years and have never seen anyone get a per diem as a SAR volunteer
