    SEIU Custodians

    June 1, 2020

    Updated Work Expectations
    While district school buildings are physically closed, school is open and in session conducting distance-learning. Custodians are expected to report to work and will focus on:

    • Deep cleaning
    • Providing support to Nutrition Services meal hub sites helping feed our students
    • Providing support for childcare services as required by the Governor’s Executive Order
    • Assisting principals and educators in classroom clean out and summer checkout
    • Summer cleaning, waxing floors, etc.

    If you are asked to report to work and you are unable to do so for personal reasons, you may use your available, appropriate leave balance (vacation, personal/emergency, or sick) or go unpaid.


    Your health benefits will be maintained as per usual.

    Note: SEIU 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.


    SEIU 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
    Custodians will be needed throughout the closure and need to report to work. While planning is still underway and continues to evolve, we will focus on deep cleaning, and providing support to certain sites that will be offering meals through Nutrition Services to our highest needs students and childcare services as required by the Governor’s Executive Order during the closure. 



    Compensation
    Because the district’s closure is due to a state of emergency under your collective bargaining agreement, custodians will receive double time (twice your standard hourly rate) under “Disaster Time pay” for hours you work. If you are not asked to report to work, you will be paid your regular rate.

    If you are asked to report to work and you are unable to do so for personal reasons, you may use your available, appropriate leave balance (vacation, personal/emergency, or sick) or go unpaid. 

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