Unscheduled. Unscheduled absences are those absences from duty which could not have been foreseen or requested by the employee in advance of 8 p.m. on the employee's shift preceding the absence. Provisions detailing the use of annual leave in conjunction with time off slots are contained in Article 27 of this Agreement.
Unscheduled. “Call-in”: A shift worker shall be guaranteed overtime to be paid at the rate of 1 1/2 times the employee’s regular base hourly rate of pay when called in to work on short notice on a scheduled day off. This provision shall not apply to shift workers who are designated as a relief operator during the week in which the call-in occurs or to shift workers who volunteer for and are called in to assist with snow removal.
Unscheduled. Unscheduled uses of PTO must be compelling and of an emergency/urgent nature. Preventative health and dental appointments are not considered unscheduled and must be requested in advance in accordance with the provisions for scheduled uses above. An employee who is unable to report to work due to an unscheduled absence must contact their division supervisor in accordance with department/division policy, or, absent such a policy, no later than two (2) hours after the beginning of his/her scheduled work shift. Prior to submitting a timecard, an employee, if requested, must provide his or her division supervisor with satisfactory explanation/documentation as to the nature and extent of unscheduled PTO uses, except that an employee is not required to provide their supervisor with specific medical information regarding their own or a qualified family member’s condition necessitating the absence(s). The employee must keep his or her division supervisor generally informed that their absence relates to a medical or other condition for themselves or a qualified family member, or that the absence is a result of a previously-approved FMLA case (as approved by Human Resources). If the absence is more than three (3) working days’ duration, the employee may be required by Human Resources to submit a medical certification to Human Resources. The required certification may include a qualified healthcare provider’s statement and/or certification and statement that the employee has been or will be unable to work for the period of absence of their own or a qualified family member’s condition. If the absence is due to the employee’s own condition, a certification by the treating healthcare provider may be required by Human Resources indicating the employee is cleared to return without need for any restrictions or job shift modification. If needed, Human Resources will work with the employee’s supervisor to consider accommodating the healthcare provider’s request for light duty or modified work hours/schedule in lieu of denying an employee’s return to work. Below are eligible unscheduled uses that do not constitute an attendance infraction:
