Religious Observance Leave

Hi, my name is Sonny Day and I’m going to talk to you today about religious observance leave So this is a leave that will allow employees to bank time in order to take time off for a day of religious observance this is something actually YUSA had to fight for to get we had actually filed a grievance and as a result of that grievance there was a settlement and because of the settlement the employer agreed to come up with a standard operating protocol for people who have religious observances so if you have a religious observance coming up you can use your personal day If you’d like to use it personal day you can use your vacation time But what you can also do is bank time in advance of that day or part of the day so that you don’t need to use your vacation time or your personal time So the way you would do that, basically, is you have to let your manager know in advance that you want to do this, and what will happen is you modify your hours with the agreement of your manager for a time in advance so that you will be banking time so for example, what you’ll have to do to let your manager know is you have to let them know the name and the date of the religious observance and the amount of time that you’re going to need to be absent from work in order to attend to that religious observance now when they approve that there’s actually a code in the TRT that you can use to start to bank time So there’s a couple ways you can bank the time They can alter your shift so that you’re starting a little bit earlier or finishing a little bit later and that, you know, extra time in the day would be banked. But what most people do is you take shorter lunches. So you take a half hour lunch instead of taking a full hour lunch, right? And so for example if you needed the entire day off you would have to do that for 14 working days before the religious observance because there’s seven working hours in a day so you would take half hour lunches for 14 days before the religious observance that time would get banked in the TRT and then on the date of the religious observance, you know, you would withdraw that religious bank time from that from that bank. Now, can your manager say “no” if you request this? Based on operational considerations. Sometimes they may be able to say no But again, if you request this and they do say no, please contact the union office and we can look into it and we can assist you with that the other thing you should know is that shift premium or overtime. That would not apply for The time the extra time you’re working when you’re banking hours so for example if you were to add an extra half hour on the end of the day and normally a shift premium would apply to that You wouldn’t get the shift premium for that extra half hour, but overall I think this is a really great benefit for our members It allows them to participate in these religious events without having to use up their personal or vacation time. Thank you
