PLEASE NOTEThe snowstorm of March 14, 2017, was not a Common Disaster Day

We have received a number of inquiries asking whether the common disaster provisions of our collective bargaining agreements were applicable to employee absences occasioned by the snowstorm on March 14, 2017.  Since the events of March 14, 2017, do not fit the precise contractual definition of a common disaster, the provisions are inapplicable.  The RAB is recommending that each employee’s absence be treated appropriately on a case-by-case basis.

Please contact the RAB if you have any questions about common disaster provisions under our contracts.  

Please note the RAB office will be closed on Monday, October 9, 2017 in observance of Columbus Day.  The office will resume normal business hours on Tuesday, October 10, 2017.
RAB members if you have any questions or issues regarding labor relations, please feel free to contact the RAB office at 212-889-4100 for assistance.
