Vacation Work Units
The joint union/employer vacation committee has recommended an amendment to several vacation work units which result in over 90 weeks becoming available for the 2015 summer vacation for the affected units. The committee also recommended to formally reflect past/existing practice for other vacation work units.
Overall, the analysis shows coverage can be improved and more weeks can be made available by altering some of the vacation units.
The Union Executive Board held a special meeting this week to evaluate the proposed updates and voted to endorse the recommendations.
