Post Order of the Drafts -Issued by WSO Posted: Wed Jun 03, 2009 5:40 pm

As you know, due to budget reductions and the operational changes for the 2009 season we are scheduling a displaced-draft for Saturday, June 13, 2009 at 6:30 p.m. at the West Bathhouse. All are welcome to attend. This draft will address displaced lifeguards only. This includes lifeguards who worked the 2008 season at West End II, Field 1, East Bathhouse Pool, Zach’s Bay and Heckscher State Park. The regular draft procedure for the remaining positions and any other position changes has been rescheduled for Saturday, June 20, 2009 at 6:30 p.m. at the West Bathhouse.

Important: In order to have an accurate indication of which positions are available, it is important that all lifeguards who wish to change their full time or part time status indicate their commitment for the 2009 season by June 11, 2009. Please contact your Captain or the Water Safety Office at 516-679-7210. (If your part time or full time status remains the same as last year, no contact is necessary.)

Thanks for posting last years draft information.

This years draft is still at the discussion stage.

No decisions have been made regarding any aspect of the draft or staffing. When information does become available, I will be sure to pass it on to the corps.

Has NYSUT's Labor Relations specialist made any comments on the legality of the Up and Down or Home-Boy rule?
