         It is the intent of the parties that the District has the right to direct the work force in order to provide services and educational programs.  In providing services and educational programs, it is the intent that the utilization of adult volunteers or students will not result in the arbitrary, capricious, and discriminatory denial of reemployment or displacement rights of unit members on the reemployment list.

         Unit members are entitled to a fifteen (15) minute compensated rest period for each four (4) hour period of service.  This rest period shall be scheduled by supervisor at or near the midpoint of each four (4) hour period of service.  Unit members who work less than four (4) hours are entitled to a ten (10) minute compensated rest period to be scheduled by the supervisor.

 

9.4    Overtime Compensation

         A unit member assigned to work by the immediate supervisor on a work day after normal working hours or on a day not scheduled to be worked shall receive at least two (2) hours of pay at the appropriate rate of pay.  This provision shall not apply to any employee who is assigned prior to leaving work, to work beyond the normal day.
