Agreement Reached on Temporary FICC Work Schedules

On Tuesday, April 28th a tentative agreement was reached on work schedules for temporary Forest Inmate Crew Coordinators.  It recognized that while supervising and directing the work of inmates there is not a time when you can take a break from your work.  If these rest periods cannot be taken then  the employee shall be allowed compensation at the rate of time and one half as provided in Article 32T-Overtime of the Contract.  This agreement now treats temporary employees the same as permanent employees with similar work schedules.

The next ODOT Coalition Bargining meeting will be May 12th in the Oregon Department of Forestry Salem Campus' Tillamook Room beginning at 5:00 pm.  Interested Forestry employees are invited to attend.
