HANDBOOK FOR SUPPORT STAFF


SECTION 2: WAGES AND HOURS
* 2.5 CALL OUT (TRADES)

* A "call out" list is maintained for trades personnel employed by the Plant Operations department. When a specific need or emergency arises on the Campus, the employee at the top of this list will be called at home to report to work as soon as possible. A name remains at the top of the list until that employee responds to a call out. After an employee responds to a call out, his or her name rotates to the bottom of the list and the next name moves to the top. You will normally be called out by Campus Safety & Security or by your supervisor. In an emergency, you may be called by another member of Management. You are guaranteed at least three hours pay if you are called out.

* Refusal to respond to a call out without an excuse acceptable to the supervisor (such as a verifiable illness, a disabled vehicle, an existing emergency at home, or other extenuating circumstances) will be considered willful misconduct and will result in disciplinary action. Repeated failure to respond to call outs will be considered a general unwillingness on your part to successfully meet the requirements of the job. Repeated refusals to respond to call outs will result in disciplinary action up to and including dismissal.
