Pursuant to Article 16.2 of our Contract, below, “outstanding compensatory time balances shall be reduced to zero (0) for each member except that compensatory time earned between June 1 and August 15 may be used until the following January 15.”
As you may recall, there was no “sweep” in August 2020 because we were in the midst of extraordinary circumstances due to COVID. At that time, SUOAF entered into a Memorandum of Understanding with the System Office to delay the sweep. As a result, Comp Time balances will be swept (reduced to zero) on August 15, 2021 except that compensatory time earned between June 1, 2021 and August 15, 2021 may be used until January 15, 2022.
If you have questions concerning the implementation of Article 16.2, as amended as described above because of COVID, please contact Indira Petoskey, Chapter President or Dave Mariasi, Chapter Vice President using their SUOAF e-mails.
16.2 Compensatory Time
Administrative faculty positions often require work beyond the minimum work week of thirty–five (35) hours. Compensatory time for extended hours of work on a workday or work on a legal holiday, a Saturday or a Sunday may be accrued only upon the approval of the first appropriate manager outside of the bargaining unit. Members shall be eligible for compensatory time on an hour for hour basis if the member is directed to work on a legal holiday. In addition, members shall be eligible for compensatory time on an hour for hour basis when the member is directed to work on a Saturday or Sunday, or extended hours on a workday, only after working forty (40) hours in a week. Such compensatory time shall be earned at the closest half hour increment.
No member shall accrue more than ten (10) days of compensatory time. The Chief Human Resources Officer on each campus may authorize additional short–term accruals of fifteen (15) days, for a total of twenty– five (25) days, in special emergencies. Annually, on August 15, any outstanding compensatory time balances shall be reduced to zero (0) for each member except that compensatory time earned between June 1 and August 15 may be used until the following January 15.
Upon separation of the employee from the University, all accumulated compensatory time shall be paid to the member/estate as promptly as possible.
