Sisters and Brothers,
The Employer has announced to the 4848 Executive that the Annual Union Vacation allotment will be changing. They informed the Local that for the 2018-19 vacation year they would approve the requests at a ratio of 2/8thor ¼ per station per 24 hour period.
The Executive proposed some changes to help maximize the amount of people who will be approved. This is being drafted up in an MOU currently. The Employer and the Executive have agreed to extend the vacation bidding process till the end of the week due to the fact the MOU is late getting signed. As agreed, the vacation request sheets will be accepted up to Friday May 4, 2018.
Once the MOU is completed and signed, the details will be released.
We thank you for your understanding as we work to get this completed.
