Union Release Time
Per Article 10 in the CBA, Union stewards and Union representatives may request Union Release Time from their manager to be released from their work duties for union business, including items such as employee orientation, disciplinary/discharge meetings, grievances, etc. Please use the process below in Workday to request time.
Step 1: Log into Workday.
Step 2: In the search field, type in Create Request.
Step 3: From the drop down, select Union Release Time.
Step 4: Complete the form and submit.
Step 5: The form will be routed to your Manager for approval and to HR as an FYI. You will receive a notification when it has been approved.
If you are a non-exempt employee, please also log your Union Release Time on your timesheet. This step is not applicable to exempt employees.
Step 1: Log into Workday and go to your timesheet.
Step 2: Select the time block that you were conducting union business.
Step 3: In the Enter Time screen, enter your hours as usual but under Details, click on the drop down for Union Release and select Union Release Hours. This will not impact your rate of pay but it will tag these hours on your timesheet as being for union business.
