continue to deal with the effects on our lives of the COVID-19 pandemic, Local 2201 is working to make sure our members have the tools they need to make life as workable as possible. To that effort, please read the following information concerning Shift Exchanges for those who have childcare issues in the coming weeks.
Chief Stone has agreed to allow employees to perform and receive shift exchanges between 8-10 hours in duration for the purpose of childcare since no one planned for the current schooling disruption we currently have. These exchanges will still be rank for rank, however they will NOT count against your personal bank of hours as identified in CBA Article 19.
When submitting the exchange, please make a note in the request that this is for childcare. Obviously, these exchanges will only be permitted during what would have been normal school operating hours.
We hope this will help our members. Please thank Chief Stone and the Administration for all they have been doing not only to mitigate this for the benefit of the public, but also for what they’ve been doing to help all of us get through this.
