CONTRACTING OUT. The Employer agrees not to contract out any work presently performed by employees covered by this Agreement which would result in the laying off of such employees.
CONTRACTING OUT. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the hospital may contract out work usually performed by members of the bargaining unit without such contracting-out constituting a breach of this provision if the hospital provides in its commercial arrangement contracting out the work that the contractor to whom the work is being contracted, and any subsequent such contractor, agrees:
CONTRACTING OUT. Section 1. The Union recognizes that the Employer has the management right, during the term of this Agreement, to decide to contract out work performed by bargaining unit members. However, when the contracting out will displace bargaining unit members, such decisions shall be made only after the affected Agency has conducted a formal feasibility study determining the potential costs and other benefits which would result from contracting out the work in question. The Employer agrees to notify the Union within one (1) week of its decision to conduct a formal feasibility study, indicating the job classifications and work areas affected. The Employer shall provide the Union with no less than thirty (30) days notice that it intends to request bids or proposals to contract out bargaining unit work where the decision would result in displacement of bargaining unit members. During this thirty (30) day period, the Employer shall not request any bids or proposals and the Union shall have the opportunity to submit an alternate proposal. The notification by the Employer to the Union of the results of the feasibility study will include all pertinent information upon which the Employer based its decision to contract out the work including, but not limited to, the total cost savings the Employer anticipates. Feasibility studies will not be required when: (1) an emergency situation exists as defined in ORS 279.011(4), and (2) either the work in question cannot be done by available bargaining unit employees or necessary equipment is not readily available. Nothing in this Article shall prevent the Employer from continually analyzing its operation for the purpose of identifying cost-saving opportunities.
CONTRACTING OUT. If the State contracts out work normally performed by employees within this unit, and if the contracting out results in the elimination of jobs within the unit, the State will negotiate the impact of the contracting on the affected employees. Negotiations, if demanded, will occur no longer than a sixty (60) day period prior to implementation of the layoff. If the parties have not reached agreement within the sixty (60) day period, the obligation to bargain shall continue. In addition, the State shall assist those employees whose jobs are eliminated by such actions to find other employment. The resources of the Bureau of Human Resources, the Department of Labor and the affected department shall be used in coordination with MSEA-SEIU to help the affected employees secure employment inside or outside of State government. When an employee receives notice that he/she is being displaced as a result of contracting out, the State and MSEA-SEIU will exchange information on vacancies which can be useful in assisting the affected employee find employment. Appropriate preference shall be given affected employees for placement in State service.
CONTRACTING OUT. 22.01 The Hospital shall not contract out work currently performed by members of this bargaining unit if, as a result of such contracting out, a layoff of any bargaining unit employees occurs. This clause will not apply in circumstances where the Hospital no longer provides particular services as a result of the rationalization or sharing of services between Hospitals in a particular geographic district, or as a result of the withdrawal of the Hospital’s license to perform such services.
