AFSCME: EXHIBIT J: Communications Unit

  1. Communications Dispatchers II who are qualified as cross-trained dispatchers shall receive premium pay of one-half step (2.87%) in addition to their base salary. A cross-trained dispatcher is defined as a Communications Dispatcher II who is currently certified at all radios. This premium pay shall not be granted until training is received and certification is issued, certification will not be issued to any Dispatcher unable to demonstrate proficiency in all radio categories.       Should a previously trained and certified cross-trained dispatcher lose certification, this premium pay shall also be lost until certification is regained.
  2. Dispatchers assigned in writing to serve as acting supervisor for a shift or who are assigned to serve as Communications Training Officer (CTO) will receive an 8% differential.
  3. For the Communications Bargaining Unit, the parties agreed that effective November 20, 2005, the 12 hour shift schedule was modified from the schedule of seven 12-hour shifts per pay period (a total of 84 hours with the final 4 hours paid as overtime), to six 12-hour shifts and one 8-hour shift per pay period (a total of 80 hours with no regularly-scheduled overtime).Under the current staffing levels, this new schedule will result in 4 uncovered hours in conjunction with each of the 8-hour shifts. The parties agree that any available overtime resulting from such 4 uncovered hours will be posted for bid by qualified Dispatchers. Priority in such bidding shall be given to the Dispatcher who is working the 8-hour shift that results in the uncovered four hours. No dispatcher will be required to work this overtime.

    The parties agree that Dispatchers who bid for any such overtime do so voluntarily and without coercion and that such overtime does not constitute regularly-scheduled overtime in determining compensation earnable for retirement purposes. Neither the employer nor the employee will, therefore, make any retirement contributions on these overtime hours and the compensation resulting from such overtime will not be included in calculating the high salary for retirement annuities.

  4. The County agrees to increase the PTO (Personal Time Off) hours that can be used up to 300 hours per fiscal year. In increasing the PTO threshold to this level, the EPTO (Emergency Personal Time Off) benefit is eliminated.
  5. Communications Dispatchers who are assigned mandatory overtime with less than twelve (12) hours’ notice will receive one-half hour of compensatory time off (CTO) for every four (4) hours of mandatory overtime worked in accordance with Section 7 of the MOU between the parties. Accrued CTO under this provision may only be taken as time off when approved in advance by the employee’s supervisor. Within thirty (30) days of Board approval of a successor MOU, Mike Callagy shall meet with up to two (2) Dispatchers and a Union representative, or other committee composition s mutually agreed by the parties, to discuss the issue of scheduling mandatory overtime with less than twelve (12) hours’ notice. This provision shall sunset upon agreement of the parties over a resolution, or after six (6) months of Board approval of a successor MOU, whichever occurs sooner. The parties may extend this provision by mutual agreement.
  6. Within one hundred twenty (120) days of Board approval of a successor MOU, Mike Callagy shall meet with up to two (2) Dispatchers and a Union representative, or other committee composition as mutually agreed by the parties, to meet and discuss the issues of scheduling, time off between shifts, shift hours, and a Critical Incident Stress policy.
