Operations Protocol

Please remember to follow the OPERATIONS PROTOCOL throughout the school year. This allows for a more organized flow of information which creates a seamless venue for creating any paperwork, i.e. grievance, complaint, Unfair Labor Practice (ULP), arbitration, etc.

Skipping a step may push the entire process back to the level missed, creating time concerns. PLEASE follow the process as outlined. For more information, please contact your building rep.

Unpaid Leave

Anyone going on an unpaid leave 30 days or longer will have the balance of their REA dues deducted. Anyone going on a paid leave will have the balance of their dues deducted during the course of their paid leave, to be divided in equal installments.

Anyone going on an unpaid leave longer than 60 days due to health issues should contact the REA office to find out if they are eligible for reduced dues.
