Meeting Date:           April 24, 2006

 

From:                          J. Cunningham Perry, Human Resources/Safety Director

 

Subject:                      Resolution amending Current Collective Bargaining Agreement, adopted December 12, 2005 with Leesburg Firefighters Local 2957, IAFF - Working Out of Classification Pay

 

 

Staff Recommendation:

 

Staff recommends approval to amend the current bargaining agreement with the Leesburg Firefighters, Local 2957, IAFF to include Article 49 – Working Out of Classification Pay.

 

Analysis:

 

On December 12, 2005 the Commission adopted Resolution 7527 authorizing the City Manager, Human Resources/Safety Director, and Fire Chief to execute the current bargaining agreement with Leesburg Firefighters, Local 2957.  After adoption, staff determined the Working Out of Classification Pay Article was inadvertently left out of the bargaining agreement as agreed upon by both parties.  The agreed upon language is below for your consideration:

 

Article 49

Working Out of Classification

 

49.1           A unit employee who is temporarily assigned to a position higher than his normal job classification shall receive his/her base rate for the first 24 consecutive hours of work, and thereafter, if such assignment continues on a consecutive shift or shifts or on the employee’s next regularly scheduled shift or shifts, such employee shall be paid $1.00 per hour above his/her base rate for the hours worked in such higher classification.

 

49.2          No employee in his/her first six months of probation shall work out of classification as a firefighter/engineer.  To be eligible to work out of classification, a probationary firefighter past the first six months of probation shall have completed his/her probationary training package found in Department SOP’s.

 

 

 

 

 

Options:

1.  Authorize the Human Resources Director to amend the adopted December 12, 2005 adopted bargaining agreement to include Article 40 as indicated above; or

 

2.  Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate

 

 

Fiscal Impact: 

 

A unit employee, when working in a position higher than their normal job classification, will be compensated $1.00 per hour for each hour worked on a consecutive shift or shifts beyond the initial 24 hour period said employee worked in a position higher than their normal job classification.
