1.1 Regular Workday and Starting and Ending Times
A custodial employee hard at work

All employees shall work a regular forty (40) hour week excluding Sundays, as per a posted schedule for each classification of employee. Such schedule shall be no more than five (5) consecutive days on either a Monday-Friday or Tuesday-Saturday basis and shall be exclusive of building checks and emergencies beyond the District’s control. Such regular schedule shall be established at least one (1) week in advance.

If a custodian is the only custodian on a day shift in a building, then the custodian shall generally start his/her shift at 6:10 a.m. and end at 2:10 p.m., unless the schedule is changed pursuant to this section, and have a twenty-minute mid-shift paid lunch break which shall be part of their scheduled eight (8) hour shift during which time they shall remain on the premises and shall perform duties requiring immediate attention.

Custodial workers who have no regularly assigned work locations (substitute) shall work the hours assigned them on a day by day basis and their hours of work and lunch period shall be determined in accordance with those of the employee for which they are substituting. Substitutes who are assigned the 10:00 P.M. to 6:00 A.M. shift shall not need to call in for an assignment prior to 1:00 P.M. This provision shall not apply in those emergencies beyond the District’s control.

Employees shall be allowed to clean up prior to the end of their shift, using the employer’s facilities.
