Said files shall be made available for inspection by the affected employee by no later than fourteen (14) working days after the Employer's receipt of notice from the employee. Nothing in this Section shall be construed as in any way limiting employees' rights to access personnel files as provided under State law.

Section 6.3 Limitation on Use of File Material
It is agreed that any material and/or matter not available for inspection, as provided for in Section 6.2 above, shall not be used in any manner or any forum adverse to the employee's interests.

Section 6.4 Use and Destruction of File Material

(b) All Departments* Any information of an adverse employment nature which is unfounded, exonerated or otherwise not sustained, shall not be used against the employee in any future proceedings.

Any record of discipline may be retained for a period of time not to exceed eighteen (18) months and shall thereafter not be used as the basis ofany further disciplinary action, unless a pattern of sustained infraction exists. A pattern shall be defined as at least two (2) substantially similar offenses during said eighteen (18) month period.

Section 6.5 Traditional Work
Any work which has been traditionally performed by employees who are represented by the Union shall continue to be performed by said employees, except where non-unit employees have in the past performed unit work, or in emergencies, to train or instruct employees, to do layout,

|10 10|
demonstration, experimental, or testing duties, to do troubleshooting or where special knowledge is required, provided however, where employees do not report to work because of vacations, or other absences or tardiness, or for personal reasons during the, course of the day, or because all of the employees are or will be occupied with assigned duties, or to complete a rush assignment, employees of any other unit represented by another Union shall not perform the work of said employees. For example, if an Aviation Communications Operator (ACO) is on vacation, a Data Entry Operator shall not be assigned as a replacement for the ACO. The Employer shall not arbitrarily extend the period of any emergency beyond the need for that emergency.

ARTICLE 7 GRIEVANCE AND ARBITRATION

Section 7.1 - Discipline Procedures
All disciplinary actions, up to and including discharge, shall be subject to review only under the applicable grievance and arbitration procedures provided in this Article 7. Such contractual review procedures shall be the sole and exclusive means for review of any and all such disciplinary actions, and no review of any such disciplinary action shall be available before the City's Human Resources Board or Police Board. An employee who may be subject to disciplinary action for any impropriety has the right to ask for a Union representative to be present at any interrogation or hearings.

In the event that a discharged employee appeals an adverse decision of the Personnel or Police Board to the Circuit Court of Cook County, or thereafter to the Appellate Court oflllinois, and the decision of the Personnel or Police Board is reversed or remanded resulting in restoration of the job, the Employer will pay the employee's reasonable attorney's fees which he or she has incurred in connection with the court proceeding, excluding fees incurred before the Personnel or Police Board. The employee shall submit a post-appeal fee petition to the Employer, which shall be supported by full documentation of the work performed, the hours expended, and the rates paid by the employee. Should the parties be unable to agree on the proper amount of the fees to be paid to the employee, either party may refer the dispute to arbitration under the relevant provisions of this agreement.
The Employer within its discretion may determine whether disciplinary action should be an oral warning, written reprimand, suspension or discharge, depending upon various factors, such as, but not limited to, the severity of the offense or the employee's prior record. Such discipline shall be administered as soon as practical after the Employer has had a reasonable opportunity to fully investigate the matter. The City of Chicago approves of the concept of progressive and corrective discipline for Career Service employees, and recommends its use when appropriate, as set forth in the City's Personnel Rules.
In cases of oral warnings, the supervisor or his/her designee shall inform the employee that he/she is receiving an oral warning and the reasons therefor. For discipline other than oral warnings, the employee's immediate supervisor or his/her designee shall meet with the employee and notify him/her of the accusations against the employee and give the employee an opportunity
10

to answer said accusations. Specifically, the supervisor or his/her designee shall tell the employee the names of witnesses, if any, and make available copies of pertinent documents the employee or Union is legally entitled to receive, to the extent then known and available. If the employee requests the presence ofa Union representative at a meeting, one will be provided, if available, who shall be given the opportunity, if the employee requests, to rebut the discipline and request further pertinent information.

Section 7.2(a) Grievance Procedure
Matters which are management rights, except as expressly abridged by a specific provision of this Agreement, suspensions of over thirty (30) days and discharges shall be excluded from this grievance procedure. Suspensions of over thirty (30) days and discharges shall be governed exclusively by the terms of Section 7.2(b) below. Disciplinary cases which are converted from a discharge to a suspension as a result of a decision of the Personnel or Police Board do not thereafter become arbitrable as a result of said decision.
A difference, complaint or dispute (hereinafter called a grievance) between the Employer and the Union or any of the employees of the Employer it represents, arising out ofthe circumstances or conditions of employment, shall be exclusively settled in the following manner and there shall be no strikes, slowdowns, or work stoppages during the life of this Agreement. It is agreed that the time limitations set forth herein are of the essence and that no action or matter not in compliance therewith shall be considered the subject of a grievance unless said time limitations are extended by agreement of both parties to this Agreement. Before a formal grievance is initiated, the employee and/or the Union shall meet with and discuss, the matter with the employee's immediate supervisor. A steward may be present at such discussion. If the problem is not resolved in a discussion, the following procedure shall be used to adjust grievances.

STEP I
The employee and/or the Union shall raise the grievance in writing within fifteen (15) calendar days of having knowledge of the event which gives rise to the grievance. The employee or the Union will specify the Sections and subsections of the Agreement alleged to have been violated, a brief description of the facts giving rise to the grievance, including relevant dates, and the requested remedy. Nothing in this paragraph shall preclude the Union, prior to Step IV, from amending the grievance with respect to the specific Sections and subsections of the Agreement alleged to have been violated.
The immediate supervisor will render his/her decision to the employee and the Union in writing within ten (10) calendar days after the grievance is presented, and will briefly state the basis for the decision.


STEP 11.
A. Ifthe grievance is not settled at the first Step, the Union representative and/or the employee shall have the right to make an appeal in writing on a mutually agreed upon form to the Department Head's designee, a senior supervisor, within ten (10)
11

calendar days after the date of the decision by the immediate supervisor, or the date such answer was due. The name of the senior supervisor, who is the Department Head's designee shall be posted for employees in areas where employee notices are normally posted and submitted to the Union.

B. The Department Head's designee will notify the employee in writing with a copy to the Union of his/her decision on the grievance form within seven (7) days of receipt of the Step II appeal form.

STEP III
A. Ifthe grievance is not settled in Step II, the Union or the employee may appeal in writing to the Department Head within ten (10) calendar days of receipt of the senior supervisor's decision, or the date such answer was due.

B. The Department Head or his/her designee shall meet with the Union's representative at least once each month to discuss all pending grievances that have been advanced to Step III. The purpose of the Step III meeting will be for the Department and the Union to share relevant information and discuss their respective positions with respect to each grievance pending at Step III, and attempt to amicably resolve as many grievances as possible. The Department Head or the Department Head's designee shall have the requisite authority to attempt to resolve grievances during the Step III meeting. No grievance will be discussed at more than one Step III meeting, unless the Employer and the Union mutually agree that further meeting and discussion would be beneficial. Nothing in this paragraph shall be construed to relieve the Employer and the Union from their respective obligations to otherwise process and respond to grievances in accordance with this Article. For any grievances that remain unresolved at the conclusion of the Step III process, the Department shall provide the Union with a written decision within seven (7) calendar days ofthe conclusion of the Step III process.

C. If an arbitrable dispute is not settled at the third step, either the Union or the
Employer may notify the other in writing within thirty (30) calendar days Of receipt of the
Step III decision, that it requests final and binding arbitration of its grievance.

D. Any settlement at Step I, II or III shall be binding upon the Employer,
Union and the aggrieved employee or employees. Failure ofthe Employer to answer a
grievance within the time limits herein shall permit the Union to refer the case to the
succeeding step of the procedure. Upon request, there shall be a meeting at each step of
the grievance procedure. A Union steward or a Union Staff Representative may be
present at each step meeting. The Union will be informed of and allowed to be in
attendance at and participate in all grievance or disciplinary hearings. A grievance may be
withdrawn without prejudice to the Union. Failure of the Employer to answer a grievance
within the time limit herein shall automatically cause the grievance to advance to the
succeeding step of.thc procedure.

12

If the grievance or arbitration affects more than one employee, the grievance or arbitration may be presented by a single selected employee representative of the group or class. The Union shall advise the Employer when it knows the grievance affects a group or class of employees.
Even though a grievance has been filed, employees are obligated to follow instructions or orders of supervisors of the Employer, except where the instruction or order is so inherendy dangerous to the employee that it could cause death or serious physical harm. The Employer agrees that by following instructions or orders the employee does not waive the employee's right to process his or her grievance. Refusal to follow instructions or orders shall be cause for suspension or discharge at the option of the Employer.

STEP IV
If the matter is not sctded in Step III, the Union or the Employer, but not an individual employee or employees, may submit the dispute to arbitration by serving a written request to arbitrate, setting forth the facts and specific relief requested, within thirty (30)calendar days after the decision is given at Step III hereof.
A rotating Roster of Arbitrators shall be used by the parties. The
Employer and the Union will select a roster of eight (8) arbitrators. All arbitrators shall be selected by mutual agreement.

In the event the parries cannot mutually agree upon the selection of a full roster of eight(8)arbitrators, the parties shall contact the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) for a list of arbitrators in the Chicagoland area (excluding those upon whom agreement may be have been reached). The parties will then alternately strike names from such list until the remaining number of arbitrators are left to make up a roster of eight (8). The Employer and the Union will rotate the first strike. Arbitrators will advise the parties of their fees and expenses prior to selection and will be expected to charge such fees and expenses. The fee and expenses of the arbitrator shall be borne by the party whose position is not sustained by the arbitrator. In cases of split decision, the arbitrator shall determine what portion each party shall be billed, based upon which party, if any, substantially prevails. In the event that either party cancels or postpones a scheduled hearing date (including instances where the cancellation of hearing resulted from the Union's unilateral withdrawal of the grievance), and a fee is assessed by the arbitrator as the result of said cancellation or postponement, the canceling or postponing party will pay the arbitrator's fee, unless the parties mutually agree otherwise. The arbitrator assessing said fee shall have jurisdiction to resolve any dispute arising out of his/her fee allocation for the cancellation or postponement.

The arbitrator shall have the right to subpoena witnesses and require the production of pertinent documents at the request of either parly. Each party shall be responsible for compensating its own representatives and witnesses. The cost of a transcript shall be shared if the necessity ofa transcript is mutually agreed upon between the parties. Arbitrators shall select a date for arbitration within ninety (90) days of notice that a grievance is ready for arbitration
13

and submit their decision within thirty (30) days following such hearing. The Roster of Arbitrators will be listed in alphabetical order on a list retained by both the Employer and the Union.

Upon a Step IV request for arbitration, arbitrators will be designated by the parries in alphabetical rotating order and subsequendy contacted to obtain an arbitrator's commitment to arbitrate the respective grievance within the stated time limit within seven (7) days from the date the grievances are submitted to the arbitration process. If an arbitrator is not available to hear a case, the next arbitrator in rotating alphabetical order will be chosen. The parties may mutually agree not to use a particular arbitrator for a specific case, or to select an arbitrator who is not on the roster. The parties may agree to submit more than one (1) grievance to a selected arbitrator.

Every year each party has the right to remove up to two (2) arbitrators from the Roster of Arbitrators and have them replaced with other arbitrators selected in the same manner as the initial selection. The parties may mutually agree at any time to remove any arbitrator from the panel of eight (8). If the parties so agree, they may mutually agree to replace such arbitrator with another arbitrator who is mutually acceptable. If, because of such removals, the Roster of Arbitrators falls below six (6), and the parties cannot agree on replacement arbitrators, the parties shall contact the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service (FMCS) for a list of nine (9) arbitrators (excluding those already on or removed from the roster) in the Chicago area for each vacancy on the roster below the complement of six (6).

The parties will then alternately strike names from each such list of arbitrators until one (1) remains from each so that the remaining number of acceptable arbitrators is sufficient to bring the total roster to at least six (6), or such number greater than six (6) as the parties may agree.

C. An arbitrable matter must involve the meaning and application or interpretation of a specific provision of this. Agreement. Questions of arbitrability shall be decided by the arbitrator. The arbitrator shall have no power to amend, add to, subtract from, or change the terms of this Agreement, and shall be authorized only to interpret the existing provisions of this Agreement and apply them to the specific facts of the grievance or dispute. The decision of the arbitrator shall be final and binding on all parties to the dispute, including the employee or employees involved.
An Employer or Union grievance may be filed at Step III. Certain issues which by their nature are not capable of being settled at a preliminary step of the grievance procedure or which would become moot due to the length of time necessary to exhaust the grievance steps, may be filed at the appropriate advance step where the action giving rise to the grievance may be resolved.
The Union and the Employer agree that, in order to further their mutual goal of resolving grievances at the lowest practical level of the grievance procedure, sharing of relevant
14

information is required. For that reason, the parties recognize the obligation of their representatives at each level of the grievance procedure to provide, in a timely manner, relevant information that is available or reasonably obtainable.

The City of Chicago's essential mission is to provide services to its citizens in a safe and economic manner. The parties to this Agreement recognize that drug and alcohol abuse in the workplace has a deleterious effect on the health and safety of employees, as well as their morale and productivity, all of which creates an undue burden on the persons which the City and employees covered by this Agreement serve. Furthermore, the economic cost of providing health care services to employees who abuse drugs and alcohol has put an increasing burden on the City's finances.

The Employer and the Union maintain a strong commitment to protect people and property, and to provide a safe working environment. To this end, the employer has also established its confidential Employee Assistance Program for employees with personal problems, including alcohol and substance abuse, and the parties to this Agreement urge employees who have such problems to utilize the Program's services.

To maintain a workplace which provides a safe and healthy work environment for all employees, the following drug and alcohol program is also established.

Prohibited Items and Substances: All illegal drugs and controlled substances, alcoholic beverages, and drug paraphernalia in the possession of, or being used by, an employee on the job or the premises of the Employer.

£g) Under the Influence: Any mental, emotional, sensory or physical impairment due to the use of drugs or alcohol.

(h) Test: The taking and analysis of any body component sample,
whether by blood, breath, urine, or in any other scientifically reliable manner, for the
purpose of identifying, measuring or quantifying the presence or absence of drugs,
alcohol or any Metabolite thereof.

Section 23.3 Disciplinary Action
All employees must report to work in a physical condition that will enable them to perform their jobs in a safe manner. Further, employees shall not use, possess, dispense or receive prohibited items or substances on or at the Employer's premises, nor shall they report to work under the influence of drugs and/or alcohol.
When, based upon the direct observation of two supervisors, the Employer has reasonable cause to believe that an employee is under the influence of a prohibited substance, the Employer shall have the right to subject that employee to a drug and alcohol test. At the Employer's discretion, the employee may be placed on administrative leave with pay until test results are available. If the test results prove negative the employee shall be reinstated. In all other cases, the Employer will terminate all employees who:

test positive for drug and/or alcohol use;

Employees to be tested will be required to sign a consent form and chain of custody form, assuring proper documentation and accuracy. If an employee refuses to sign a consent form authorizing the test, he or she will be subject to termination.
Drug and alcohol testing will be conducted by an independent laboratory accredited by the United States Department of Health and Human Services ("DHHS"), and may consist of either blood or urine tests, or both. The Employer reserves the right to utilize a breathalyzer to test for the presence of alcohol, in lieu of other clinical testing.
Laboratory testing procedures will conform to the procedures specified in the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMSA) guidelines for federal workplace drug testing programs, dated June 9, 1994 and as may be amended hereafter by the relevant agency of the Department of Health and Human Services.

laboratory satisfactory to the Commissioner of Personnel, provided that the
Employer's testing laboratory shall arrange for transmitting said sample to the second
laboratory. Positive results of said retesting shall be conclusive as to the
presence of alcohol or drugs. The failure to take a sufficient sample, or to preserve such sample, to allow for retesting, shall not affect the removal from eligibility of an applicant or personnel action, including discharge, or any employee.

No laboratory report or test results shall appear in the incumbent's personnel file unless they are part of a personnel action under this program, but shall be placed in a special locked filed maintained by the Commissioner of Personnel, except as such disclosure may be required by this policy, law or ordinance.

APPENDIX C MEDICAL CARE BENEFITS

The following changes in the current City Health Care Plan (the "Plan") shall become effective on January 1, 2006, unless otherwise provided in this Appendix C. Unless changed by this proposal, all other aspects of the Plan shall remain in effect.

L Plan Alternatives.
The Plan shall consist of three separate alternative coverages - a PPO plan ("PPO"); a PPO Plan with a Health Reimbursement Account ("PPO/HRA"); and two HMO plans ("HMO").

2. Plan Design. (a) Network Plans:
The deductibles, co-insurance and out-of-pocket maximums for the PPO Plan and the PPO/HRA Plan arc set forth in Exhibit 1 hereto. For the PPO and PPO/HRA Plans, all covered services are subject to the annual deductible unless otherwise indicated. HMO benefits in Exhibit 1 are not subject to co-pays unless the co-pay is specified.

If the Employer decides that the PPO/HRA alternative lacks sufficient employee enrollment or is cost prohibitive, it may discontinue that alternative provided the Employer provides reasonable prior notice to the Union and an opportunity for those enrolled in the PPO/HRA to enroll in another plan. For this purpose, "reasonable notice" shall be defined as notification in writing of the employer's intent to discontinue the plan at least ninety (90) days prior to the proposed discontinuation where circumstances are within the city's control. In all other cases, the City will provide the maximum notice as is practicable under the circumstances. In addition, in the event that a new health care plan becomes available to the City during a Plan year, the Employer shall have the right to include that new plan in the Plan alternatives upon reasonable notice to and discussion with the Union.
The PPO/HRA Plan shall have an HRA account for each employee (to be administered by the relevant claim administrator or other third party administrator which the Employer shall determine, with prior notice to the Union), which account shall be credited with $500.00 per individual, and $1,000.00 per family per Plan year. Such amounts must be used for "qualified medical expenses"(as defined by the Employer), and can be carried over into the next Plan year if not used in the preceding Plan year.



64

The PPO and PPO/HRA Plan will provide a "wellness" feature for members with a maximum annual benefit of $600.00 per individual, which is not subject to. the Plan deductible or co-insurance.
Add an emergency room deductible of $100.00 to the PPO and PPO/HRA Plan which amount shall be waived in the event the individual is immediately admitted to the hospital. The Employer will interpret this provision consistently between its various bargaining units.

Add a disease management feature for active employees.
Expand the Employer's 125 Plan effective January 1, 2006, to provide for a "flexible spending account" feature to allow for the contribution by participants of up to $5,000 per Plan year to fund certain medical expenses (suchas dental, vision, deductibles, co-payments, drug co-paymentSj and over-the-counter drugs) on a pre­tax basis, subject to the normal IRS rules regarding such plans.
All newly hired employees shall be required to participate in the PPO Plan for the first 18 months of their employment. 'These employees shall be eligible to participate in the first enrollment period following the 18 month anniversary of their dates of hire.

(b) HMO Plan:
(i) The HMO Plan shall have the minimum features set forth in Exhibit 1 hereto.
Health Care Contributions

(a) The schedule for employee contributions to the Plan, as set forth in the 1999-2003 collective
bargaining agreement(s), shall remain in effect until June 30, 2006.

(b) A new employee contribution schedule, which shall become effective July 1, 2006, is set forth
in Exhibit 2 hereto.
Prescription Drug Coverage (a) Retail Drug Plan:
For the PPO Plan, PPO/HRA Plan, and HMO Plan, the following co-pays shall apply -
generic tier 1 - effective through life of the Agreement - $10.00.
brand formulary tier 2 (brand with no generic substitute) - effective July 1, 2006, $30.00.
brand with generic substitute - $10.00 generic co-pay plus the difference in cost between brand and generic drug.
brand non-formulary tier 3 - effective July 1, 2006, $45.00.

65

(b) Mail Order Plan:
The PPO Plan, the PPO/HRA Plan, and HMO Plan shall have a mail order feature. The co-pays for the mail order plan for a 90 day supply are as follows -
generic tier 1 - effective through life of the Agreement - $20.00.
brand formulary tier 2 (brand with no generic substitute) - effective July 1,
2006, $60.00.
brand with generic substitute - $20.00 generic co-payment plus difference in cost between brand and generic drug.
brand non-formulary tier 3 - not available in mail order.

5. Dental and Vision Plans
Preventative Dental Plan: ¦
The Employer shall maintain the current PPO and HMO dental plans with changes to co-pays and deductibles according to the schedule attached as Exhibit 3 hereto.
Vision Care Plan:
The current vision plan will be deleted. Vision benefits are to be included in the PPO and PPO/HRA Plans, and under the HMO's pursuant to the coverages available in those plans.

SIDE LETTER #4 - REVISED DURING 2017-2022 CBA NEGOTIATIONS SUMMER EMPLOYMENT FOR CROSSING GUARDS

City proposes to extend the attached side letter agreement dated February 15, 2019 concerning Crossing Guards working for summer employment as Traffic Control Aides-Hourly for the life of the new Agreement.

Jeffrey Howard
Executive Vice President, SEIU Local 73 300 S. Ashland Ave., Ste. 400 Chicago, IL 60607

RE: Crossing Guard Summer Employment as TCAII Pilot Program

Dear Mr. Howard:

This is to confirm the agreements between the City of Chicago Office of Emergency Management and Communications ("OEMC") and SEIU Local 73 ("Union") with respect to summer employment opportunity for crossing guards, as a pilot program for the Summer of 2019, to work as a Traffic Control Aide-Hourly, provided they successfully pass the traffic control training and can adequately perform the duties of the TCAH to the Department's satisfaction

Crossing Guards will be on paid time for any training in which they partake. Persons who complete such training will be assigned TCAH work opportunities as the need arises at the Department's discretion and will be paid their normal rate of pay as Crossing Guards for such work. If more crossing guards complete the training than are needed for this program, then, the participants will be chosen by seniority.

Crossing Guards who are working for the summer school program are not eligible for this program. This program is purely voluntary and Crossing Guards will not be penalized in any way for not participating in the program. However, once a crossing guard is participating in the program, they are expected to report to their assigned events. Unauthorized failure to report to an assignment can disqualify a crossing guard from participating in this program, but will not incur any type of disciplinary action. At the conclusion of summer 2019, this program will expire unless extended by mutual agreement of the parties. The parties have mutually agreed to extend the term ofthis side letter through the life of the 2017-2002 CBA.

Please sign below to signify agreement to the foregoing.

RE: Unit II and City of Chicago
Traffic Control Aide - Hourly; Title Code 9104

Dear Matt- :

This is to confirm the agreement between the City of Chicago ("City") and SEIU Local 73 ("Union") that the following terms and conditions shall apply to employees in the Traffic Control Aide - Hourly ("TCAH") job classification:
TCAH's are included I the Unit II bargaining unit. TCAH's are not covered under the terms of the City's collective bargaining agreement with Unit II ("the Contract"), except only for the following provisions: Article 1 (Recognition), Sections 3.1 (Union Security) and 3.2 (Activity Reports), and—the parties' October 11, 1996 letter agreement pertaining to fair share; and Article 4 (No Strike or Lockout). In addition, TCAH's shall have the right to bid on bargaining unit vacancies in accordance with the terms of Section 11.2 of the Contract. In addition to the posting requirements of Section 11.2(e), the City agrees that the Department of Police ("CPD") will make available to the Office of Emergency management Communications ("OEMC") a copy of any job postings for vacant, full-time Traffic Control Aide positions posted in CPD, so that said positions can be posted by OEMC. The Union may also appoint TCAH's to serve as Stewards, subject to the terms of Article 16 of the CBA. The Union and OEMC will meet to discuss the appropriate number of TCAH's who may be appointed as Stewards.
Any alleged violation ofthe specific term of this Letter of Agreement shall be subject to Sections 7.3 and 7.4 (Grievance and Arbitration) ofthe Contract.

As of July 1, 2017, the pay rate for the TCAH job classification was will be $15.59 $19.86 per hour. Effective on—tho first day of the third-full-pay period—that follow^heHlateH)f--exeeutioii of this-Letter-of-Agr-eement-by-the-U-nion, the-pay rate-for-the TCAH-job-e4assifiefl4ion-w411-bc $16.59 per-hour- That pay rate shall be increased from time to time as required by the percentage wage adjustments agreed to by the parties in the 2018-2022 Collective Bargaining Agreement, as follows:

In the case of a termination of a TCAH for work-related misconduct of a type which would result in the City discharging a non-TCAH employee for a first offense, (not including any attendance-related violation or job abandonment), the Union may request review ofthe termination by the City's Director of Labor Relations, whose decision shall be final and binding.
No TCAH will receive any City health, vacation, holiday, sick-leave^ bereavement leave* or other employment benefits, and TCAH's shall only be entitled to such leave time as may be mandated by law. ypon-r-atifieation-i>y-lw>tli-pa^ties—of TCAH's shall be eligible for paid sick leave in accordance with Section 15.4 of that the 2018-2022 Collective Bargaining Agreement.

TCAH's will work only as needed, as determined by the City. No TCAH will work more than 1,300 hours between and including January 1 and December 31 in any calendar year, including any training directed by the City. In any TCAH's first calendar year of employment, the TCAH will not work more than a pro rata portion of 1,300 hours (including any training directed by the City), based on the number of months remaining in the calendar year, including the month in which the TCAH was hired. (For example, if a TCAH is hired on July 21 in any calendar year, the TCAH will work no more than 6 months' worth of hours, or 650 hours, for the remainder of that calendar year.
Except only for specific events (including Soldier Field events), emergencies (including weather emergencies) or projects, or for purposes of receiving training, TCAH's will not be assigned to work within the area bounded by Oak Street on the north, Roosevelt Road on the south, Lake Shore Drive on the east, and Clinton Street on the west.

Re: 2017 City of Chicago Negotiations - Unit II On the Job Training of PCO Titles

Dear Mr. Bloch:

This letter will confirm our understandings and agreements reached during the 2017 contract negotiations between the City of Chicago and Public Safety Employees Unit II on the issue of on the job training of PCO I and II personnel. This letter will supersede existing Side Letter 16 as provided below.

It was agreed that within one (1) year following the ratification of this Agreement, the City of Chicago will establish the job title of PCO-Trainer at a newly established Salary Grade Level 15, the specific job duties and qualifications of which position shall be established by the City's Department of Human Resources. The primary purpose of this job title shall be the performance of all on the job training for PCO I and II positions within OEMC, which training currently is being performed under the provisions of existing Side Letter 16 by PCO I and II employees who are assigned periodically to perform such training for an additional pay rate. All employees with PCO I and PCO II experience shall be eligible to bid for vacancies in this new position. Among such other qualifications as will be established, it is agreed that successful bidders who apply for this position must be able to establish to the hiring Department's satisfaction a record of prior successful experience in training of PCO I and II personnel. When not performing training as the primary job responsibility, the PCO-Trainer shall perform such PCO 1 and II duties as may be assigned by OEMC from time to time as the need for such assignments shall arise.

It was further agreed that for this new position, an employee's seniority for all purposes shall be determined by such employee's length of service in any prior bargaining unit positions which were held by that employee. In addition, as the Department fills future vacancies, the initial shift assignment for the vacancy shall be part of the posting for that position.

Upon creation of this new title and recruitment of sufficient qualified personnel by the Department, the training provisions set forth in existing Side Letter 16 shall no longer be in effect and such PCO I and II on-the-job training shall be performed by the PCO-Trainer classification, it being understood that nothing herein shall preclude Department supervisors who perform certain aspects of training PCO I and II titles from continuing to perform such training.

If this letter accurately sets forth our agreement, please initial a copy of this letter and return it to me.

Very truly yours,

Re: 2017 City of Chicago Negotiations - Unit II On the Job Training of ACO Titles

Dear Mr. Bloch:

This letter will confirm our understandings and agreements reached during the 2017 contract negotiations between the City of Chicago and Public Safety Employees Unit II on the issue of on the job training of Aviation Communication Operators ("ACO's") personnel. This letter will supersede existing Side Letter 24 as provided below.

It was agreed that within one (1) year following the ratification of this Agreement the City of Chicago will establish the job title of ACO-Trainer at a newly established Salary Grade Level 1_5. The specific job duties and qualifications of this position shall be established by the City's Department of Human Resources. The primary purpose of this job title shall be the performance of all on the job training for ACO employees, which training currently is being performed under the provisions of existing Side Letter 24 by ACO employees who are assigned periodically to perform such training for an additional pay rate. All employees with ACO experience shall be eligible to bid for vacancies in this new position. Among such other qualifications as will be established, it is agreed that successful bidders who apply for this position must be able to establish to the hiring Department's satisfaction a record of prior successful experience in training of ACO personnel. When not performing training as the primary job responsibility, the ACO-Trainer shall perform such ACO duties as may be assigned by the Department from time to time as the need for such assignments shall arise.

It was further agreed that for this new position, an employee's seniority for all purposes shall be determined by such employee's length of service in any prior bargaining unit positions which were held by that employee. In addition, as the Department fills future vacancies, the initial shift assignment for the vacancy shall be part ofthe posting for that position.

Upon creation of this new title and recruitment of sufficient qualified personnel by the Department, the training provisions set forth in existing Side Letter 24 shall no longer be in effect and such ACO on-the-job training shall be performed by the ACO-Trainer classification, it being understood that nothing herein shall preclude Department supervisors who perform certain aspects of training ACO titles from continuing to perform such training.

If this letter accurately sets forth our agreement, please initial a copy of this letter and return it to me.

Dear Jeff:

The Union has raised an issue with respect to the OEMC's assignment of TCA Hourlies to perform certain duties currently referred to as "Lead" and "Field Training Aide" duties. This letter memorializes the City's agreement that, within one year of ratification of this Agreement, following the ratification of theHaew-eotiective bargaining agreement, and to the extent these assignments continue to be utilized by the OEMC, the City's Department of Human Resources ("DHR") will conduct an audit of the "Lead" and "Field Training Aide" assignments to determine their appropriate classification, said audk-to-begin within thirty (30) days of the effective date of ratification of the new agreement.

In the event that, as a result of this audit, DHR determines that any new job classification or classifications should be created to perform these assignments, the City agrees to stipulate to the inclusion ofthe new classification or classifications, in the Unit II bargaining unit, contingent upon the Union's filing of an appropriate petition with the Illinois Labor Relations Board, and the Board's certification of the Union as the representative of the new job classification or classifications.

¦¦^^¦.'¦¦KE-r- :L^Uel"6fAgreement
Use of Surveillance Cameras/Equipment "

This letter confirms the agreement between the Cily of Chicago and SEIU, Local 73 as it relates to the City of Chicago's ("the City") use of surveillance cameras or equipment as a basis for disciplining employees in accordance with the parties' collective bargaining agreement ("CBA"). ; :. Specifically, the parties agree to the following:
t 1. Vfe'Fhe City acknowledges its obligation to comply with the provisions ofthe CBA
with respect to discipline as it relates to career service employees, including the requirement that discipline of career service employees shall only be for "just cause". Further, the City recogni7.es diat this requirement applies with equal force to any discipline based upon evidence obtained by virtue of die observation of events through the use of surveillance cameras or equipment owned or maintained by the City and/or its agents. The City also recognizes the Unions right to challenge any discipline of career service employees in accordance with the grievance and arbitration procedures set forth in the CBA.
2. The Union acknowledges the City's compelling interest to operate and employ
surveillance cameras/equipment in the workplace and other public areas to capture criminal conduct, deter prospective crime, enhance public, safely and protect public property. As such, the operation and use of such equipment constitutes a legitimate and permissible exercise ofthe City's managerial authority.




121 NORTH LA SALLE STREET, ROOM GOO, CHICAGO, ILLINOIS GOC0K

Iii the event that the City observes "real time" events through the use of surveillance cameras/equipment that suggest the possible occurrence of a minor disciplinary infraction, and before any disciplinary measures based on said • observation have been taken, the City will normally ask an appropriate supervisor to investigate by visiting the scene observed and speaking with the employee(s) in question, provided diat a supervisor is available to respond and is located a reasonable distance from the scene observed. When the supervisor investigates the scene observed, every effort will be made to correct the problem without disciplinary action. However, this does not limit the City's ability to issue discipline in the event it determines that discipline is warranted. For the purpose of this agreement, "minor disciplinary infraction" means any infraction resulting '¦in/the City's issuance of discipline to the employee of a one (1) day suspension or lesser discipline. .

To the'extent that the City intends to rely on videotape evidence obtained from a
surveillance camera as a basis for discipline or: involuntary discharge of ajiysgy$%
career service employee, the City will permit, upon written request, the employee
and the Union an opportunity to view the videotape as part ofthe pre-disciplinary
processidesenbed in Section 7.1 of the CBA. i w

hi the eventthe^Uhion decides to pursue a grievance in relation to-discipline
issued to an'ciriployee that involves the use of surveillance cameras or equipment,
the City shail,Iupon written request, provide the Union with a copy of the video
surveillance. ., . . ." ¦

'fhe City agrees that surveillance cameras shall not be installed in areas afforded statutory protection and traditionally recognized as private, such as locker rooms, changing areas, rest rooms, or other areas explicitly prohibited by law.

The City agrees to notify employees of the existence of surveillance cameras by posting of notices to employees. This requirement shall be deemed satisfied upon such posting, notwithstanding any possible subsequent defacing or removal of such notice by anyone other than the City.

The parties agree that nothing in this letter of agreement shall'be construed as the City's waiver or the limitation of its right to discipline any employee based upon evidence it deems appropriate in any case, or of its right to present such evidence in support of any discipline. Nor shall anything in this letter be construed as a waiver by the Union of its right to challenge any discipline ofany career service employee in accordance with the terms ofthe CBA, the Illinois Public Labor Relations Act, and other applicable laws.

If this letter accurately represents your- understanding and agreement regarding these procedures, please sign below to signify the Union's agreement to the foregoing.

It was agreed that concurrent with the adoption of the electronic posting and bidding language changes to Section 11.2(e) of the new Agreement, the Employer will offer to any bargaining unit employee who requires such assistance a demonstration of how to use the CAREERS website for the purpose of bidding on available bargaining unit positions as well as to apply for other available vacancies. Such demonstrations will be offered at mutually convenient times and places in consultation with the Union.

Proposed Aviation Security Officer Training Title

Dear Mr. Bloch:

This letter will confirm our understandings and agreements reached during the 2017 contract negotiations between the City of Chicago and Public Safety Employees Unit II on the issue of on the job training of Aviation Security Officers.

It was agreed that within sixty (60) days following the request of the Union, or at some other mutually convenient time, the City of Chicago will meet and discuss with the Union issues related to training including training incentives and/or the possible creation of an Aviation Security Officer-Trainer position in the Department of Aviation. If the Citv creates this title, the specific job duties and qualifications of the position, as well as the pay grade for that new title, shall be established by the City's Department of Aviation together with the Department of Human Resources as well as the Office of Budget and Management. If the City creates this title, it is understood that creating this title does not preclude Department supervisors who perform certain aspects of training of Aviation Security Officers from continuing to perform such training. When not performing training duties, the ASO-Trainer shall perform such Aviation Security Officer duties as may be assigned by the Department from time to time as the need for such assignments shall arise.

It was further agreed that for this new position, an employee's seniority for all purposes shall be determined by such employee's length of service in any prior bargaining unit positions which were held by that employee. In addition, as the Department fills future vacancies, the initial shift assignment for the vacancy shall be part of the posting for that position.

NEW SIDE LETTER—SIDE LETTER 37
[Proposed Side Letter in Response to Union Proposal on Side Letter #20] Mr. Robert E. Bloch
Dowd, Bloch, Bennett, Cervone, Auerbach & Yokich 8 South Michigan Avenue, 19th Floor Chicago, Illinois 60604

Re: 2017 City of Chicago Negotiations

Dear Mr. Bloch:

This letter will confirm our understandings and agreements reached during the 2017 contract negotiations between the City of Chicago and Public Safety Employees Unit II on the issue of traumatic occurrences.

As you know, Side Letter #20 to the parties' Agreement recognizes the possibility of employees experiencing emotional trauma in the aftermath of events that may occur on the job. In part, that Side Letter specifies that an employee under such circumstances may be given a relief period during that day, as well as the need for counseling and peer support, but does not address the need for additional leave time.

The City of Chicago will undertake an internal review of its policies connected with such on the job trauma, and determine what additional protocols might be warranted in this regard. That review may also include consultation with qualified medical and/or psychiatric professionals in order to fully examine the nature of the problem and what additional courses of action may be warranted. At the request of either party, the City of Chicago will meet from time to time with designated representatives of the Union update the Union on at mutually agreeable dates and times, but not more than every six (6) months, to discuss the progress of that review. Following that review, the City of Chicago will meet with the Union and discuss the impact on members of the bargaining unit of any contemplated changes to these protocols, and consider what measures may be appropriate for adoption.

The parties will revise Side Letter #20 to incorporate the terms of this understanding. If this letter accurately sets forth our agreement, please initial a copy of this letter and return it to me.

Very truly yours,




Michael W. Duffee Chief Spokesman City of Chicago
