LETTERS OF UNDERSTANDING Ten-Month Employees’ Vacations

LETTER OF UNDERSTANDING

BETWEEN

AMERICAN FEDERATION OF STATE, COUNTY AND MUNICIPAL EMPLOYEES, 

DISTRICT COUNCIL 14, LOCAL NO. 844 (AFSCME) 

REGARDING TEN-MONTH EMPLOYEES’ VACATIONS

  

October 15, 2002

Mr. David North, Business Representative

American Federation of State, County and

Municipal Employees, Council 14

300 Hardman Avenue South, Suite 2

South Saint Paul, Minnesota 55075-2469

  

Re:  Letter of Understanding Regarding Ten-Month Employees’ Vacations

Dear Mr. North:

This letter will serve as clarification and as an understanding between the School District and the Union regarding when ten-month clerical and technical employees may take vacation.  It is our understanding that ten-month employees may use vacation, in accordance with business office rules regarding vacation use, anytime within the employee’s ten-month work year, including days within the regular school year when school is not in session.  These days when school is not in session include teacher workshop days, winter and spring break, and teacher prep/in-service days. 

All vacation must be requested in accordance with each department’s procedures and approved by an employee’s supervisor.  There may be instances where an employee is required to work during these non-student contact days; however, if work is not scheduled, employees may use available vacation time. 

This letter addresses only the parties understanding regarding the issue of use of vacation for ten-month employees.  It is not part of the labor agreement, nor does it supplant the District’s discretion in approving specific vacation requests or the scheduling of work during non-student contact periods.

 

 

 

Sincerely,

Wayne Arndt

Negotiations/Labor Relations Manager
