Communicating for Safety 2012: Key Date Dec. 8
Thursday, December 01, 2011

Communicating for Safety (CFS) 2012 is going to be here before you know it. Those planning to attend should take notice a key date of Dec. 8. In accordance with our collective bargaining agreements, NATCA at the national level will be providing a list of employees desiring to attend at least 45 days (no later than Dec. 8) prior to the conference so that a total of 24 hours of excused absence can be granted. If an employee's RDO falls on one of those days, they will need to make an RDO swap in order to receive excused absence. If an employee is working a 10-hour CWS on those days, they may request two hours of leave each day or request to change their schedule to work five eight-hour days that week. Requests to change to five eight-hour days shall be approved, staffing and workload permitting.
