Self Scheduling. The Home and the Union may agree to implement a self-scheduling process. Self-scheduling is the mechanism by which employees in a Home create their own work schedules. The purpose of self scheduling is to improve job satisfaction and quality of work life for the participating employees. Self scheduling requires a collaboration of employees and management to ensure proper coverage of the Home and to meet the provisions of the Collective Agreement. It is agreed that self scheduling will be negotiated locally by the Home and the Union and will include a trial period. Each Home must have the majority agreement of the full-time and part-time employees who vote on the issue to agree on a trial period of up to six months. Once the trial period is complete, each Home must have a minimum of 66⅔% agreement of the full-time and part-time employees who vote on the issue to continue with the new schedule on a permanent basis.
Self Scheduling. Owner is expected to offer each RMR Generator into the NYISO’s Energy and Ancillary Service markets using the ISO-committed flexible bid mode at its Reference Levels for economic scheduling. However, Owner may request permission to self-schedule an RMR Generator for operational and maintenance considerations, including required testing or for fuel management purposes. The ISO may accept or reject the requested self-schedule in its sole discretion. Variable Costs during ISO-approved self schedules will be the self-scheduled RMR Generator’s Reference Levels.
Self Scheduling. In accordance with Article 13.03 of the Collective Agreement, the Parties may wish to implement Self-Scheduling to achieve a scheduling practice that offers the benefit of Self-Scheduling to staff, in addition to satisfactory and efficient staffing coverage to the Hospital. The Parties agree to enter into a Self-Scheduling Program on the following conditions:
Self Scheduling. To afford maximum flexibility, the on-call 8 nurses will self-schedule to cover shifts, including any alternative number of days 9 in a pay period. On-call nurses may voluntarily adjust their schedule after 10 posting in coordination with the other on-call nurse. If the on-call nurses are 11 unable to reach agreement on a schedule, the nurse manager will make the final 12 decision. All schedule adjustments must be communicated in advance to the 13 nurse manager. On-call nurses earned leave use will be covered by the back-up 14 call system as outlined in 8.11. 15
Self Scheduling i) The Bargaining Unit will hold a secret ballot vote and if ninety percent (90%) of the members of the Bargaining Unit are in favour of self-scheduling, it will be implemented beginning July 1, 2000. A nurse may choose not to participate in self-scheduling and in that instance, she/he will remain on the master schedule.
Self Scheduling. The Association and the Hospital agree in principle to the concept of self- scheduling. Self-scheduling is the collective responsibility of the nurses involved to ensure the proper coverage of the unit and to ensure that all provisions of the Collective Agreement are respected at all times. Should the Hospital or the nurses wish to implement self-scheduling on a particular unit, the nurses shall do so in writing to the Employer and the Association. The Employer shall do so in writing to the Association.
Self Scheduling. Self scheduling will be introduced in a unit when sixty percent (60%) of the nursing staff who vote indicate by secret ballot their willingness to participate in self scheduling on a test basis. The test shall run for a six-month period after which the nursing participants will indicate by a sixty percent (60%) vote by secret ballot their willingness to continue with the agreement of the Manager. Registered nurses participating in self-scheduling shall be responsible for scheduling their paid holidays and lieu days in accordance with the guidelines. The Manager shall review and approve the self-scheduling schedules to assure that adequate nursing coverage is maintained. Such approval shall not be unreasonably withheld.
