VACATION SCHEDULING

UPDATE
(August 6, 2021): A revised MOU (click here) has been signed that ends the trimester portion of the trial effective January 1, 2022.

Per the Side Letter on Vacation Scheduling (see page 57 of the contract),in Summer 2020 we formed a joint labor-management task force to explore a new way to do vacation scheduling.  The outcome of that task force is a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) that would revise how we do vacation scheduling.  

The Vacation Scheduling Task Force MOU can be found here.

The revised Scheduling Periods can be found here:
2021 and 2022.

A sample trimester request form can be found here.

An explainer sheet can be found here.

The request process will go into effect December 1,2020 for the summer trimester request period that begins May 1, 2021 and will be a pilot until the next contract negotiations. The vacation scheduling taskforce will continue to meet monthly to discuss feedback and evaluate the process.  If you have questions or concerns about this process, please contact OSUNO VSTF Co-Chair Elizabeth DiGiannantoni at
