We don't even cut grass at our facility. Grass cutting is handled under a national contract.

/m2356 I am a Building Maintenance Custodian level 05 in New Jersey, at my office we use contractors for all that stuff you mentioned. It's my understanding this has been part of our local agreement for 30 years.

Where is it written that local agreements may allow for any agreements that the local parties agree to?

Yep, as an et I've always been told I can work down. As staffing continues to be reduced through attrition, abolished jobs, etc I suspect it'll happen more often.

My understanding is they all are. Suggest you meet with local craft officers for serious chat to get info. The need/work for ETs has gone down due to technology improvements. Rather than lay off ETs or pay them to sit and do nothing, they kept them working doing other maintenance jobs.

Unfair to your mpe OT for sure. But your overtime is not guaranteed. ET work hours are.

Are there any other sites who are using ets to do mpe work. Using mpe maintenance hours to create et jobs. This is not only taking away from mpes having the opportunity for better hours and days off but prime vacation. Also how this applies to equal pay for equal work act. It is unfair for ets getting higher pay for the same work mpes are doing. What are the stipulation for ets working down.

It applies only in Boston because of Boston’s local agreement.

Best bet is to call or meet with local. Go to union meeting and ask questions there. Get most current info.

X-stew can you copy and paste that settlement here? Because I'd be real curious to read it if it exists. You see level 04 custodians can be required to work from scaffolding, which apparently, blows your axiom out of the water.

We have a chief-steward in our office.

I will not be talking to any rep by phone. I am communicating here, or by email or certified mail.

If your local is ok with bumping you up a level, fine. But I suspect they want you to stay in your lane and have mgt bring in the right help.

 My last place was forever telling the custodians to vacuum case lights using a ladder. That grievance taught me the axiom that custodians always keep their feet on the ground.

So contact local APWU office and chat with them.
