Understanding Job Postings!
Updated On: Aug 05, 2015

Dear Brothers and Sisters,

Recently at Orange and Rockland Utilities there have been many job postings and much movement throughout the organization. It has come to our attention that employees haven’t been released for these postings in the contractual timeframes. We want all members to be aware of their contractual rights when it comes to bidding, awarding, and retention.

When it comes to job postings we want everyone to understand that Article IV Sec. 5 of the CBA is clear as to how postings are awarded.

The vacancies shall be posted for a period of seven (7) calendar days.

There is specific lock-in periods associated with classifications that are clearly spelled out in Article IV.

All employees wishing to be considered for said vacancies must apply within that 7 day time period, be sure if you want to be considered you bid with qualifications.

Seniority governs when applying for positions.

All employees MUST be released for vacancies within the timeframe clearly spelled out in the CBA. These timeframes are 30 days throughout the organization and 60 days in the Meter Reading Occupational Group.

What this means is simply;

A)        Posting goes on board

B)        The employees interested apply with senior bidder                     receiving award

C)        If awarded employee must be released within that             30 or 60 day time frame

D)       New pay rate commences when you actually step into position however progression increases revert back to starting date on posting

If posting for Gas Construction 3rd Class goes on board and the senior bidder is in Meter Reading this bidder cannot be required to remain in Meter Reading for more than 60 calendar days from the date of starting on the posting.  When the employee steps into position the new Gas Construction pay rate commences. The next progression raise for 2nd class would begin 12 months after starting on the posting. Conceivably an employee would receive pay for 2nd class after 10 months in the new occupational group.

We want to stress the importance of these time frames and whether an employee is stepping up in pay or bidding into a lesser paying job 30 days or 60 days is clear. The Company does not’t have a right to keep an employee in an existing position past these time frames without Union approval.

We certainly hope this is clear to all members and if there are any questions we implore anyone to check with their Shop Steward.

Read the Contract follow the Contract and know your entitlements.

Fraternally yours,

Scott Jensen                             Brian McPartland

President/Business Manager      Business Representative
