New Schedule for 2010
This is a good thing. It's all over the comment sections. The main points:
- The Lodge has been working to modify the current 6-on 2-off work schedule for at least fifteen years. That goal was finally accomplished today when the Contract Negotiations Team unanimously recommended that the full Board of Directors vote to accept an agreement that will implement a 4-on 2-off work schedule in Districts 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 9, 10, 11, 12, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 21, 22, 23, 24, and 25 beginning the first period of 2010. Areas 1, 3, 4, and 5 will also participate in this schedule. The full Board of Directors unanimously voted to accept the Negotiations Team's recommendation.
This schedule has been piloted in the 014th and 018th Districts for the past ten and one-half months. All details, including sample rotations, regarding this schedule can be found on the FOP website under the Current Contract tab on the left side of the page.
The 005th and 020th Districts will continue to work the Ten-Hour Rotating Schedule in 2010.
The 008th and 013th Districts will continue to work the 6-on 3-off Schedule.
Area 2 will continue to work the Ten-Hour Rotating Schedule in 2010.
All Special Functions Units that participated in any 2009 pilot work schedule will continue to work that schedule in 2010.
It should be noted that all desk, lockup, and watch relief positions will be included in all of these work schedules in 2010.
