14-5. Emergency Situations

In emergency situations over which the school system has no control (e.g., natural and man-made disasters, fires or criminal behavior) that disrupt schools and/or threaten the safety of bargaining unit employees, students or BOARD property, the UNION agrees to cooperate with the school administration in implementing workable solutions. Upon request of the UNION, the BOARD shall bargain with the UNION over compensation or alternatives for compensation for responding to the emergency.
