Mr. James J. Sheedy
Dear Mr. Sheedy:
In the course of the negotiations of the 1995-99 State/PEF Agreement the parties agreed to the continuation of the Standby On-Call Rosters Article from the 1988-91 Agreement.
As part of the parties' agreement to continue that Article in the 1995-99 Agreement, the parties also agreed that the provisions of the 1979-82 side letter on this subject, a copy of which is attached, will also continue to be in effect for the term of the 1995-99 Agreement.

Dear Mr. Kraemer:
This will confirm our discussions regarding standby duty assigned to employees in the PS&T unit who are not eligible for payment for serving on Standby-On-Call Rosters under the provisions of Article 31 of the State/PEF agreement.
The State and PEF acknowledge that because of the nature of the duties of certain professional employees, and the requirements of the programs to which certain employees are assigned, it is sometimes necessary for the State to require such employees to be available for recall or to be available to perform certain activities during off-duty hours. The State and PEF also acknowledge that in agencies where such circumstances regularly occur, it is appropriate for agency-level labor/management committees to discuss steps that may be taken to reduce the resulting inconvenience to the employees, including the equitable distribution of such assignments and the provision of telephone answering services and/or paging devices to remove some of the restriction on employees' mobility.
