        C. Neither party in any negotiations shall have any control over the selection of the negotiating representatives of the other party.

        ARTICLE III - GRIEVANCE PROCEDURE

        A. Definition
            The term "grievance" means a complaint or claim that there has been an improper application, interpretation or violation of any term or provision of this contract or an administra-tive or Board decision affecting an individual member or group of members of the Association.

        An "aggrieved person" is the person or persons making the claim.

        All members of the Association, including the grievant, shall continue under the direction of the Chief School Administra-tor regardless of the pendency of any grievance, until such grievance is properly determined.
            A “party in interest" is the person or persons making the claim and any person who might be required to take action or against whom action might be taken in order to resolve the claim.
            The parties agree to follow the procedures outlined in the agreement and to use no other channels to resolve any ques-tion or proposal until the procedures within this agreement are fully exhausted.
            A grievance may be filed by an individual member, a group of members, or by the Association, either in its own name or as the representative of a group or class whose individual signatures shall not be necessary. Any grievance must be lodged at the proper initiating level, but a grievance lodged by a group or by the Association will be initiated at Level 1 (b).

        B. Purpose

        The purpose of this procedure is to secure, at the lowest possible administrative level, equitable solutions to the problems which may, from time to time, arise affecting the terms and conditions of employment. Both parties agree that these proceedings will be kept as informal and confidential as may be appropriate at any level of the procedure.

        C. Procedure
            Grievances shall be initiated within twenty-five (25) days of the happening.
        -2-



            1. Level One
          a. Any member of the Association who has a grievance shall discuss it first with his/her immediate superior in an attempt to resolve the matter infor-mally at that level.
          b. If, as a result of the discussion, the matter is not resolved to the satisfaction of the member, he/she shall set forth his/her complaint in writing to the Chief School Administrator within seven (7) working days, of the result at step 1:a above. The Chief School Administrator shall communicate a decision to the employee in writing within ten (10) working days of receipt of the written complaint.

        2. Level Two
          If the grievance is not resolved to the member’s satisfaction within ten (10) working days of the receipt of the Level One decision, he/she may request a review by the Board. The request shall be submitted in writing through the Chief School Administrator who shall attach all related papers and forward the request to the Board. A committee of the Board shall review the griev-ance, hold a hearing with the professional employee, if requested, and render a decision in writing within 30 working days of the hearing. A copy of the Board's decision shall be forwarded to the Association.

        3. Level Three
                If the decision of the Board does not resolve the griev-ance to the satisfaction of the grievant, notice of intention to proceed to arbitration shall be given to the Board through the Chief School Administrator within fifteen (15) working days after the receipt of the decision which is being appealed.
            If the grievance is not solved as a result of the above procedures, then the following procedure will be used to secure the services of an arbitrator:
                a. A joint request will be made to the Public Employment Relations Commission (P.E.R.C.) to submit a roster of persons qualified to function as an arbitrator in the dispute in question.

                b. The arbitrator shall limit himself/herself to the issues submitted to him/her and shall consider nothing else. He/she can add nothing to, nor sub-tract anything from, the agreement between the parties. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding. Only the Board and the aggrieved and his/her representatives shall be given copies of the arbitrator's report of findings and recom-mendations. This shall be accomplished within thirty (30) days of the completion of the arbitra-tor's hearings. The costs for the services of the arbitrator, including per diem expenses, if any, and actual and necessary travel subsistence ex-penses, shall be borne equally by the Board and the Association. However, in the event the arbitration is brought by an individual member, without the Association’s concurrence, all costs will be borne by the individual.
          -3-



                  c. All meetings and hearings under this procedure shall not be conducted in public and shall include only such parties of interest and their designated or selected representatives heretofore referenced in this article.

          4. Separate Grievance File
                  All documents, communications and records dealing with the processing of a grievance shall be filed in a sepa-rate grievance file and shall not be part of the person-nel file of any of the participants.
            ARTICLE IV - MEMBER RIGHTS

            A. Nothing contained herein shall be construed to deny or re-strict such rights as members represented by the East Windsor Regional School Management Association may have under New Jersey School Laws or other applicable laws and regulations.

            B. The personal life of a member represented by the East Windsor Regional School Management Association shall not affect the member's employment except as it may prevent the member from performing properly his/her assigned func-tions.
            C. Dependent children of administrators will be permitted to attend school in the East Windsor Regional School District at one-half the tuition rate established by the Board of Educa-tion for non-resident students. Requests for attendance under this article must be submitted in writing to the Chief School Administrator prior to enrollment.

            ARTICLE V - ASSOCIATION RIGHTS AND PRIVILEGES

            A. The Association shall have the privilege to use space in school buildings at reasonable non-school hours on school days, for meetings, provided that approval has been secured in advance of the time of all such meetings in accordance with Board policy.

Such application is to be received by the Chief School Administrator thirty (30) days prior to the commencement date of the requested leave. In emergency situations, in which thirty (30) days notice would not be possible, the request must be submitted in writing for the approval or disapproval of the Chief School Administrator and would be subject to the concurrence of the Board in writing. Timelines for leaves of absence under the Family Leave Act will be in accordance with regulations to be established for that Act.

                1. This leave of absence may be shortened upon written request and Board of Education approval. This approval will be based upon the staffing needs of the district at the time of request and the satisfactory assurance that the member is again able to devote full time to his/her position.
                2. Members on this leave of absence may be employed as regular substitutes in the district any time following the birth or adoption of the child upon written request to, and approval of, the Board of Education and the administrative staff.

            -7-





            Leaves of Absence With Pay

            A. Personal Illness Days
                The Board provides members with fourteen (14) days per year at full pay for personal illness. These days may be accumulated for use in subsequent years. The Board further provides that, after all such personal illness days as indicated in the preceding paragraph are exhausted, an additional fourteen (14) days per year are provided at half pay for the members on a case by case basis.

            B. Illness in the Immediate Family Days
                The Board provides members with three (3) days per year at full pay for illness in the immediate family (father, mother, husband, wife, brother, sister, child, mother-in-law, father-in-law, son-in-law, daughter-in-law and immediate household).
                The Board further provides that, after all such illness in the immediate family days as indicated in the preceding paragraph are exhausted, an additional seven (7) days per year are provided at half pay in accordance with N.J.S.A. 18A:30-6 on a case by case basis.
                An absence because of an illness in the immediate family which exceeds ten (10) days per year may be granted by the Chief School Administrator at full deduction in pay.

                All unused Illness in Family days, as calculated on June 30, shall be cumulative as personal illness days except that no more than fifteen (15) days shall be carried over as personal illness days to the next year.

                Leaves of Absence will be granted in accordance with federal and state Family Leave Acts.

            C. Death in the Immediate Family Days
                The Board provides members with five (5) days per event at full pay for death in the immediate family. After all such death in the immediate family days are exhausted, additional days may be granted by the Chief School Administrator at full deduction in pay.

            D. Death in Other than the Immediate Family Days.
                The Board provides members with one (1) day per event at full pay for a death in other than the immediate family (grandparents, uncles, aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, brother-in-law, and sister-in-law).

            F. Days for Jury Duty or Subpoena by Court
                The Board assures members full pay for each day that their presence in court is required by subpoena. The Board further provides full pay for each full day that the member is required to be in court for jury duty. This provision does not apply to subpoenas issued in any action in which the member of the Association has brought a claim against the Board. However, provisions of the grievance procedure or arbitration would assure full pay for each day in court required by subpoena.
            F. Days for Other Reasons
                The Board provides members three (3) days leave of absence with pay per year for religious, legal, business, household, or family matters which require absence from work during working hours upon prior approval (2 days except in cases of emergency) of the Chief School Administrator, except a full deduction will be made for absence on the day before or after a vacation or holiday period.

                All unused Personal days as calculated on June 30, shall be cumulative as personal illness days except that no more than fifteen (15) days shall be carried over as personal illness days to the next year.
            G. Vacation Days
                Vacation days must be requested in writing to the member’s supervisor for his/her approval. Requests must be submitted in writing one (1) week in advance of the date(s) requested. Requests made less than one (1) week in advance may be made verbally to the supervisor with a written request to follow with three (3) days. Requests for vacation days when school is in session, or during the last week of August or the week in which days are designated for staff development prior to the beginning of the school year are strongly discouraged.

                The Board provides the following vacation days for members, who have held a position represented by the Association as follows:

                During the first budget 1-2/3 days per month
                year of employment employed

                Thereafter to 10 years 20 days per budget year

                11 years or more 24 days per budget year


                For members whose employment in an eligible position began before July 1, 2000:

                During the first budget year of employment, vacation days, which are earned at 1-2/3 days per month on the 15th day of the month, may be taken as they are accrued. After the first budget year of employment, vacation days are taken during the budget year following the year in which they are accrued. If the member’s services are terminated in the district, or the employment year is changed, the member will be reimbursed for all accumulated vacation days at the salary rate in effect at the time the days were accrued.


            -9-


                For members whose employment in an eligible position after July 1, 2000:

                Vacation days will be provided at the beginning of each employment year according to the schedule above. If the member’s services are terminated in the district, or the employment year is changed, the member will be reimbursed for available unused vacation days. Members who have used more vacation days than he/she would have earned will have a per diem deduction in the final paycheck for vacation days used beyond those that would be accrued during that school year.

                Each member may “bank” fifteen (15) vacation days. These fifteen (15) days must be used during the second budget year following their accrual and are, therefore, non-cumulative.
                In the event of the member’s death, accrued vacation days will be paid to the member’s estate.

                During a vacation period, illnesses of more than three (3) consecutive days, which are verified by a physician in writing, may be granted by the Chief School Administrator.

                Members shall receive a per diem payment for all unused vacation days at retirement. In the even of death payment shall be made to the estate of the unit member.

            H. Holidays
                Twelve-month employees will have eighteen (18) holidays per year.

                The Board provides a holiday schedule for members according to the school calendar.
            I. Military Leaves of Absence
                Military leaves of absence will be granted in accordance with state and federal statutes governing such leaves including but not limited to 38:23-1 and Chapter 119 of the laws of 1941.

                ARTICLE XI – PAYMENT FOR UNUSED SICK LEAVE
            A. Any member who retires according to the provisions of TPAK in order to receive immediate benefits as opposed to “deferred benefits” and has twenty (20) years of service in the East Windsor Regional School District shall be eligible for payment for unused sick leave.

            B. Members planning to retire must notify the Chief School Administrator no later than December 1 of the school year preceding the effective date of retirement in order to receive prompt payment on or about July 1 following the effective date of retirement. Members who notify the Board by April 1 will receive (one half) of the payment on or about July 1 following the notice and the remainder on the 2nd July 1 following the notice. Members who do not notify the Chief School Administrator by the April 1 deadline shall receive full payment one year after the July 1 date set forth herein.
            -10-

            C. To qualify for payment the retiring member must have a minimum of three hundred (300) accumulated sick days. Upon qualifying, payment will be based on one half, i.e. 2 for 1, of the member’s accumulated days in accordance with the schedule set forth below. For members who retire with at least thirty (30) years of total service in the East Windsor Regional School District and at least three hundred (300) accumulated days, the amount paid to any member shall not exceed $10,000.
                $85 per accumulated sick day for one half of all days up to and including 100 days.

                $100 per accumulated sick days for one half of all days beyond 100 days.

              A. Injury Insurance
                  The Board maintains, at Board expense, insurance coverage for members for all injuries occurring in the performance of their duties and which are promptly reported to the member’s immediate supervisor.
