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.
