CRPEG Bulletin: (2016 May 03) Reminder Class IV electrical system maintenance 2016 July 07-10

The Executive would like to remind it’s members that CNL is proceeding with a three-day Class IV electrical system maintenance outage 7 p.m. on Thursday, July 07, and Class IV power is to be restored to the site by approximately 7 p.m. on Sunday, July 10.

Since the CNL network (all servers, etc.) will be available during this three-day outage, for the Deep River offices this will mean business as usual.

Importantly though for many of our fellow members at the CRL site unless otherwise directed by your management the site will be shut down on what would be the normal business day of Friday, July 08.

The company expects that those staff not required to support the outage are to meet with their respective management to coordinate options for leave time or for other productive work. We are encouraging members to talk to their managers early to establish how this day will be covered

Extra efforts are being made by the company to provide additional meeting rooms and work stations at the Deep River facilities to enable off-site work activities. In some situations, it may be possible to work from home remotely. Members who elect to take the Friday off, are expected to use vacation time, banked time or other available leave options. All options should be discussed and agreed upon between managers and employees, in advance.

If you encounter difficulties agreeing to a plan for this day please let a steward know and we’ll do our best to help.
