2. Failure at any step of this procedure to communicate the decision on a grievance within the specified time limits shall permit the grievance to proceed to the next step.

A workday shall be defined as a day that the aggrieved is scheduled to work.

3. It is understood that the individuals shall during and notwithstanding the pendency of any grievance, continue to observe all assignments and applicable rules and regulations of the Board until such grievance and any effect thereof shall have been fully determined.

3. The Board and the Association shall assure the individual freedom from restraint, interference, coercion, discrimination or reprisal in utilizing this grievance procedure.

4. No meeting or hearing conducted under this procedure shall be public. The only parties in attendance shall be the parties in interest, witnesses, and the designated or selected representatives contemplated in this article.

F. COSTS

1. The fees and expenses of the arbitrator and costs of the hearing room shall be shared equally by the Board and the Association.

At the fourth year of employment, employees will be given the same insurance coverage to which existing employees are entitled.

5. Effective with the 2010-2011 school year, new hires must work at least 25 hours per week to be eligible for basic health, dental and prescription insurance.
