Summer Four-Day Workweek 2022

CCNY will continue its participation in the summer four-day workweek schedule starting the week of Monday, June 13, 2022, through Friday, August 12, 2022 excluding the workweeks that include Juneteenth (observed on Monday, June 20th), and Independence Day (observed on Monday, July 4th)

The following guidelines will be in effect for the summer four-day work schedule:

  1. Employees will be given the option, pending supervisor approval, of working 35 hours in 4 days; or working a regular 7-hour day and charging the fifth day (Friday) to their annual leave or remaining unscheduled holidays balance.
  2. Alternatively, supervisors may approve a flexible work schedule as appropriate, while ensuring that there are no lapses in service to students, staff and other stakeholders.

Supervisors are reminded that they must consider their employees existing remote work agreements, when deciding on the best summer workweek schedule options for their department.

The following options are examples of flexible work arrangements:

Option A

  • Employee works 7 hours per day; Monday thru Thursday 9:00am – 5:00pm
  • Employee takes a one (1) hour lunch break
  • Employee charges 7 hours of annual leave remaining unscheduled holiday for Friday

Option B

  • Employee works 8.75 hours per day; Monday thru Thursday 8:00am – 5:15pm
  • Employee takes a 1/2-hour lunch break
  • Employee does not charge annual leave for Friday
  • If an unscheduled holiday is used Monday thru Thursday, please note an additional 1.75 hours will be charged to annual leave

In accordance with past practice, during the work-week that includes Juneteenth and Independence Day, the remaining four (4) weekdays will be regular un-extended workdays. This year, Juneteenth is observed on Monday, June 20th, hence, Tuesday, June 21st, Wednesday, June 22nd and Thursday, June 23rd and Friday, June 24th will be regular un-extended work days. Independence Day is observed on Monday, July 4, 2022 hence, Tuesday, July 6th, Wednesday, July 7th and Thursday, July 8th and Friday, July 9th will be regular un-extended work days.

Employees covered by the Blue-Collar Contract and various Skilled Trade Agreements may also be included for participation in the four-day workweek, based on departmental discretion and operational need. Those titles include but are not limited to: Campus Security Assistants, Campus Security Officers, Campus Peace Officers, Campus Public Safety Sergeants, Maintenance Workers, Painters, Plumbers, Carpenters, Electricians, High Pressure Plant Tenders, Oilers, Stationary Engineers, Supervisor of Mechanics, Thermostat Repairers, Supervisors of Thermostat Repairers, Supervisors of Electricians, Supervisors of Plumbers and all Custodial employees.

As was the case in 2021, DC37 Local 924 has not agreed to the summer four-day workweek for our Laborers, which means that Laborers must work their regular daily eight-hour work schedule of Monday to Friday. Additionally, proper supervision must be ensured. Laborers who still wish to work a four-day week may do so by working four regular days and requesting Fridays off as annual leave; this is strictly voluntary.

Supervisors and managers should contact the HR Office at (212) 650-7226 with any questions or concerns. Additionally, please be advised that HR may also contact supervisors if there are questions or concerns about their proposed summer scheduling plans.
