A change of enrollment or workload necessitating transfer of classified staff.

Employee Initials: ________





a. Layoff and Reemployment.


The Company will notify Employee of any contemplated layoff due to lack of funds or lack of work. The only reason for layoff or a reduction of assigned hours shall be lack of funds or lack of work.


Any layoff shall take place upon sixty (60) calendar days written notice to the subject employee. Any notice of layoff shall specify: (i) the reason for layoff, (ii) the identity by name and classification of the employee designated for layoff, and (iii) information on the employee’s displacement rights, if any, as well as their reemployment rights.


Layoff or a reduction in assigned hours will be based on seniority, which shall be determined by the date of hire and the first date of service within a classification. Those laid off would be eligible for reemployment for a period of thirty-nine (39) months.


When a laid off employee exercises their right to enter a classification or position which the employee currently or previously has served, the least senior employee within a classification will be relocated regardless of the number of hours associated with that position.


Laid off employees are eligible for reemployment for a thirty-nine (39) month period and shall be reemployed in the order of their layoff. Their reemployment shall take precedence over other employment in the classifications affected by the layoffs.

The employee shall notify the Company in writing of their intent to accept or refuse employment within ten (10) working days following receipt of Company’s reemployment notice being delivered to the employee. Failure by the employee to tender the written notice to the Company within ten (10) days as provided for herein shall be deemed a refusal of employment by said employee. The laid- off employee may decline two (2) offers of employment before relinquishing their position on the list. If an employee on a reemployment list refuses the second offer of employment, no additional offers will be made, and the employee shall be considered unavailable for work and have waived all consideration for reemployment.

The Company and the Employee each voluntarily and unqualifiedly waives the right, and each agrees that the other shall not be obligated to bargain collectively with respect to any subject or matter related to reduction in force actions and effects related thereto, even though such subject or matter may not have been within the knowledge or contemplation of either or both of the parties at the time they negotiated or signed this Agreement.


The Company agrees in instances where technology causes the elimination or reduction of positions to address alternatives to layoff. Alternatives may include, but not be limited to retraining or transfer to other positions in which the impacted employee meets the minimum qualifications.


Employee Initials: ________







Posting of Notice. Notice of all job vacancies available to candidates from within the Company will be sent to each candidate and will be placed in such other locations as the Company determines will increase the available pool of candidates. Employees with notice must file for the vacancy consideration within five (5) days of receiving such notice.






Filing. Employees may file for the vacancy by submitting a Company application form to Company’s legal division.






Demotion. A promoted employee who is unsuccessful in the higher class shall have a right of retreat to the prior class when the position is available during the probationary period.




a. General Provisions.


The respondent in all cases shall be the Company itself rather than any individual. The filing or pendency of a grievance shall not delay or interfere with implementation of any Company action during the processing thereof.


Before filing a formal written grievance, the grievant shall make a reasonable attempt to resolve it by means of an informal conference with grievant’ s immediate supervisor. Either the grievant or the immediate supervisor may have a witness present at said informal conference providing twenty-four (24) hours advance notice is given to the other party.


b. Formal Level.


Þ Level I


If Employee wishes to initiate a formal grievance, Employee must do so within ten (10) workdays after the occurrence of the act or omission giving rise to the grievance by presenting such grievance in writing to Employee’s immediate supervisor.


The written statement shall be a clear and concise statement of the grievance, including (i) the specific provisions of the Agreement alleged to have been violated, misapplied, or misinterpreted, (ii) the circumstances involved, and (iii) the specific remedy sought. Employee’s written statement shall be submitted on ‘Grievance Form’ provided by the Company hereto as Appendix B. Employee’s statement may not be changed at later levels of the grievance and arbitration procedure.


Either party may request a personal conference with the other party. The Company shall communicate a decision to the employee in writing within ten (10) workdays after receiving the grievance and such action will terminate Level I.


Þ Level II


Employee Initials: ________



In the event the grievant is not satisfied with the decision at Level I, the grievant may appeal the decision in writing to the Chief Executive Officer or designee within ten (10) workdays after the termination of Level I.


The written appeal described herein shall be submitted, by Employee, on Company’s Grievance Form under section entitled ‘Level II’, and shall include a copy of the original grievance, the decision rendered at Level I, and a clear, concise statement of the reasons for the appeal. Either the grievant or the Chief Executive Officer or designee may request a personal conference.


The Chief Executive Officer or designee shall communicate a written decision within ten (10) workdays after receiving the appeal and such a decision will terminate Level II.


Þ Level III - Mediation


If the Company elects, the grievance may be referred to a mediator appointed by the Company. Both Employee and Company agree to participate in the process in good faith to reach an equitable resolution.


Mediation will be scheduled as soon as calendars can be arranged.


Employee and Company shall each bare half the cost of mediation.


c. Arbitration.


A grievance which is not settled at Level III, and which Employee desires to contest further, shall be submitted to binding arbitration as provided herein, but only if Employee gives written notice to the Company of its desire to arbitrate the grievance within ten (10) workdays after the termination of Level III. It is expressly understood that the only matters which are subject to binding arbitration are grievances as defined above which were processed and handled in accordance with the limitations and procedures of this Article. Processing and discussing the merits of an alleged grievance by the Company at any level shall not constitute a waiver by the Company of a defense that the dispute does not sufficiently qualify as a grievance.


The function and purpose of arbitration is to determine disputed interpretation of terms found in this Agreement, or to determine disputed facts upon which the application of this Agreement depends. The arbitrator shall therefore not have authority, nor shall they consider it their function, to decide any issue not submitted or to so interpret or apply the Agreement as to change that which can fairly be said to have been the intent of the parties as determined by generally accepted rules of contract construction.


Past practice of the parties in interpreting or applying terms of this Agreement may be considered as relevant evidence.


Employee Initials: ________



Upon the mutual and written agreement between Company and Employee, the parties may elect to utilize the expedited arbitration procedures of the American Arbitration Association.




Selection of Arbitrator. The Company and the Employee agree to request from the American Arbitration Association (or any mutually agreed to replacement thereof if such forum is unavailable) an odd numbered panel of arbitrators qualified to render a decision in the State of Florida.






Motion to Dismiss. The Company may claim that a grievance should be dismissed for reasons including, but not limited to the grievance falling outside the scope of the procedure, the grievance being filed in violation of the time limits provided for herein, or that the dispute has become moot, or that a party has breached the confidentiality provisions.






Limitations Upon Arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have no power to alter, amend, change, add to, or subtract from any terms of this Agreement, but shall determine only whether there has been a violation, misapplication, or misinterpretation of this Agreement in the respect alleged in Employee’s grievance. In determining whether the Company has violated an express term of this Agreement, the standard of review for an arbitrator is to be whether the Company acted in an arbitrary, capricious, or discriminatory manner. The decision of the arbitrator shall be based solely upon the evidence and arguments presented to him by the respective parties in the presence of each other, and upon arguments presented in briefs. The arbitrator shall not render any decision or award, or fail to render any decision or award, merely because in their opinion such decision or award is fair or equitable.






Arbitrator’s Decision. The decision of the arbitrator within the limits herein prescribed shall be binding. No decision rendered by the arbitrator shall be retroactive beyond one (1) year prior the initiation of a Level I grievance by Employee.






Expenses. All fees and expenses of the arbitrator shall be shared equally by the parties. Each party shall bear the expenses of the presentation of its own case.






Confidentiality. To encourage a professional and harmonious disposition of Employee’s complaints, it is agreed that from the time a grievance is filed by Employee, neither the grievant nor the Employee nor the Company shall make public either the grievance or evidence regarding the grievance.






Separate Grievance Files. The Company’s records dealing with the filing and processing of a grievance shall be maintained in a separate file from the personnel file of the grievant.


The arbitrator may hear and determine only one grievance at a time unless the Company expressly agrees otherwise. However, both parties will in good faith endeavor to handle in an expeditious and convenient manner cases which involve the same or similar facts and issues.


The grievance and arbitration procedure described above is to be Employee’s sole and final remedy for any claimed breach of this Agreement.


Disciplinary matters will remain subject to the provisions of the following Article 18 (Progressive Discipline).
