Some of the Aramark representatives are telling principals that the day to day management of custodians can be delegated to the engineer. This is NOT a true statement and must be reported immediately to Dennis Temple at CPS Operations. Aramark is fully responsible for the custodial operations in their entirety and you as an engineer can not be assigned to manage the custodians or perform custodial duties. The Aramark Corporation is being paid to fully manage, supervise and perform all custodial operations at your school. You are to follow your contract and perform maintenance as per the MESA and assignments from your Facility Manager.

Please inform me if you are being directed to direct, supervise or perform custodial operations.

ENGINEERS

In single engineer buildings and highest ranking engineers in multiple engineer buildings, your hours are between 6am and 6pm. You don’t leave at 1:30pm if asked to start at 5am. By contract, you will be paid overtime for hours prior to 6am and after 6pm. You can not adjust the schedule to leave at early.

This has been agreed to with Operations that you will be paid overtime on the election days if starting at 5am if you are a single building engineer or the highest ranking engineer.

Fraternally,

Dear Local 143 and 143B members,

 

Wednesday February 12, 2014 is a holiday for all members honoring President Abraham Lincoln.

Originally Monday , President’s day was also a holiday, but in 2012 the CPS negotiated with all unions to work President’s Day in exchange for Columbus Day, which was not originally a holiday for us. SO Monday, President’s day is regular day of work.

 

 

Fraternally,

Bill Iacullo, President

Attention all successful bid Engineers,

Due to the upcoming winter storm this weekend, the union has been advised that the move date for your transfer to your new assignment has been changed to Tuesday February 04, 2014. The effective date will still be Monday February 03, 2014 but we have been asked to not report to your new assignment until Tuesday February 04, 2014. We have also been promised that all applicable pay increases will be paid as of Monday even though you do not move until Tuesday.

Thank You,

Bill Iacullo, President

All time worked on Sundays is paid at the double time rate. If you were paid straight or time and a half send your information to overtime@local143.org. This email will be available by Monday 1-27-14.

It is apparent most regions paid the contractual double time rate. We are also, tracking inconsistencies.

Fraternally
Bill Iacullo,

If asked to report to work prior to your start time or prior to 6am you must still work until your regular quitting time. You must be paid overtime for all hours over 8. Do not come in early and leave early.  Refer to your contact.  This is covered under your contact.

Here is a copy of the overtime sheet

OT Time sheet

Local 143 Engineers

Please be advised that the following Green Sheet was posted regarding this weekend’s sub zero temperatures. The authorization for overtime is as follows in the green sheet for Sunday and Monday morning only. If additional requirements please work this our with your FM and LFM. If you have a high pressure plant additional hours ARE needed as your boilers can ONLY operate when you are present and on duty, and you should have these additional hours pre-approved by your LFM and FM.

The green sheet from CPS reads as follows:

Engineers,

 
As you are probably aware, there are forecasted subzero temperatures this weekend into Monday.  The current plan is that schools WILL BE OPEN as usual on Monday.
 
Because of the extreme nature of this weather, we are authorizing overtime to check and heat all schools Sunday.  It’s recommended that a shift covering 2p-10p be worked, however as each school heating system is unique, this should be worked out with your Facility Manager to ensure that the appropriate coverage is given (Saturday or Sunday).  
 
Additionally, it is required that all daytime shift engineers report to their respective schools at 5am Monday to ensure schools are properly heated and ready to receive students and staff.  
 
At any time, if there are any issues preventing normal school operations, this must be immediately communicated to your Facility Manager.  Communication is critical to ensuring a smooth return to school on Monday.
 
If you have any questions, as always notify your Facility Manager.

I have been in touch with Terry McGuffage and we discussed a strategy for coverage of the buildings this weekend especially for Sunday and Monday due to the sub-zero temperatures. There will be a directive which will include working over the weekend. Please watch for the “Green Sheet” and this website for further instructions.
