Know Your Contract: COVID-19 Notifications Must Happen within 24 Hours

We have received a number of reports that the District is not notifying educators about confirmed COVID-19 cases in their building. The language in our Safety Letter of Agreement (LOA) is very clear on this matter. If you are in a building where a COVID-19 case has been confirmed, you MUST be notified within 24 hours by email. 

PAT has met with the District to press for immediate resolution of this problem and they assured us that they are going to be streamlining their process. In the meantime, please stay vigilant and work with your building reps and safety committees to identify and address any additional violations, and please contact PAT so we can continue to pressure District leaders. For any questions on these notification requirements, please refer to Section 11e from our Safety LOA.
