DCU Members - Maintenance & Warehouse

    June 1, 2020

    DCU members who are eligible for the PPS Work Share program are working a reduced schedule. A reduced schedule means you are not expected to work during the time you have reduced hours. All eligible employees will have their schedules reduced by 20% per week. If you typically work 5 days a week, this means you will most likely not work on Fridays.  

    Your weekly hours will be reduced by 20%, and your workload necessarily will be reduced. Please work with your supervisor on questions about how this reduction will affect your workload.

    Work expectations and compensation are adjusted accordingly.

    DCU members who are not eligible for the PPS Work Share program continue working their full hours and should discuss their schedule with their supervisor.

    Work expectations

    At this time, maintenance and warehouse staff will be needed during the closure and will be expected to report to work. Unoccupied buildings will allow us to make significant progress on emergency work orders as well as all other work orders and will allow us to deliver goods and supplies to schools.


    You will be paid for your regularly scheduled days and hours of work regardless of whether you are asked to report to work. If an employee chooses not to report to work, they may use their available, appropriate leave balance (vacation, personal/emergency, or sick leave) or go unpaid. 

    Your health benefits will be maintained as per usual through this closure.
