Process. Whenever the Partnership is required under this Article 3 to offer to one or more of the Partner Guarantors an opportunity either to guarantee Qualified Guarantee Indebtedness or enter into a DRO, the Partnership shall be considered to have satisfied its obligation if the other conditions in this Article 3 are satisfied and, not less than thirty (30) days prior to the date that such guarantee would be required to be executed in order to satisfy this Article 3, the Partnership sends by first class mail, return receipt requested, to the last known address of each such Partner Guarantor (as reflected in the records of the Partnership) the Guarantee Agreement or DRO, as applicable, to be executed (which in the case of Guarantee Agreement shall be substantially in the form of Schedule 3.7 hereto, with such changes thereto as are necessary to reflect the relevant facts) and a brief letter explaining the relevant circumstances (including, as applicable, that the offer is being made pursuant to this Article 3, the circumstances giving rise to the offer, a brief summary of the terms of the Qualified Guarantee Indebtedness to be guaranteed, a brief description of the collateral for the Qualified Guarantee Indebtedness, a statement of the amount to be guaranteed, the address to which the executed Guarantee Agreement or DRO, as applicable, must be sent and the date by which it must be received, and a statement to the effect that, if the Protected Partner fails to execute and return such Agreement within the time period specified, the Partner Guarantor thereafter would lose its rights under this Article 3 with respect to the amount of debt that the Partnership is required to offer to be guaranteed or made available for the DRO, and depending upon the Partner Guarantor’s circumstances and other circumstances related to the Partnership, the Partner Guarantor could be required to recognize taxable gain as a result thereof, either currently or prior to the expiration of the Tax Protection Period, that otherwise would have been deferred). If a notice is properly sent in accordance with this procedure, the Partnership shall have not responsibility as a result of the failure of a Partner Guarantor either to receive such notice or to respond thereto within the specified time period.
Process. The guidelines to determine whether a purchased service is below the threshold are as follows: • subject matter lacking in substance; or • any consequences are relatively insignificant; or • where the nature or consequences of the work which represents a purchased service is remote from work currently performed by the PWU on a continuing basis. For purposes of clarity, this does not mean geographically remote; or • emergencies; or • any work performed under a manufacturer’s warranty, except where the manufacturer authorized the Company to do the work. Except in the case of an emergency, failure by the Company to supply the Union with the following information by fax or as otherwise agreed will result in the work in question being deemed to be above threshold. (In the case of emergency such decisions to use purchased services will be subject to the same information requirements, review and dispute resolution as non- emergency cases). The Company will notify the Union of the: • Value of Work as reflected in Tender/Contract/Bid or Estimate Documents • Scope of the Work • Location of Work • Estimated Date of Commencement and Duration of the Work Except in the case of emergency, after receipt of the above information regarding the work the union shall have three (3) working days to request an opportunity to discuss the proposed purchased service, failing which the proposed purchased service will be deemed to be below threshold. The parties will make themselves available for discussion within three (3) working days of the request for a discussion. Upon request, once the work has been performed the Company will provide the Union with the details of the final contract costs.
Process. 16.2.1 The local parties will mutually agree on a process and criteria for the review and adjudication of employee applications to the Fund. The process will include the recommendation of adjudicated applications to the applicable senior administrator. The senior administrator is responsible for the final approval of applications.
Process. Upon request, an employee seeking an accommodation shall be entitled to union representation. The union representative and the employee shall be allowed a reasonable amount of time during working hours, without loss of pay, to discuss the request. The Appointing Authority shall review employee requests for accommodations considering ADA guidelines on equipment purchase or modification, accessibility improvement, and scheduling modifications and/or restructuring of current positions and duties allowable under the collective bargaining agreement, before considering or requesting waiver of the collective bargaining agreement. If the Appointing Authority determines that contract waiver is necessary, it shall contact the local union to convene a meet and confer to be held within a reasonable time during normal working hours with union designee(s) on employer-paid time. At this meeting, the Appointing Authority shall inform the local union of the employee's restriction(s) subject to each party's confidentiality obligations, the specific article(s) to be waived and the manner in which the Appointing Authority proposes to modify that article(s). At this meeting, the Appointing Authority shall also consider additional options presented by the Local Union. Between the meet and confer and notification to the Appointing Authority of the Local Union's decision, the Appointing Authority may make temporary accommodations. Any contract waiver must be agreed to by both the Appointing Authority and the Local Union or the Council 6 Executive Board. If an employee's job duties are changed as a result of an accommodation, the employee's supervisor shall inform the employee's co-workers of any restrictions that might impact on their job duties. The supervisor shall use discretion when relaying this information.
