APPENDIX B

     Whereas, NYC Transit has entered into agreements with the unions representing the hourly workforce concerning productivity/work quality standards in the maintenance, repair and inspection of buses.

     Whereas, NYC Transit and the Subway Surface Supervisors Association agree that Maintenance Supervisors have an important role in overseeing and implementing these productivity/quality standards; and

The parties agree to the following:

1. The Maintenance Supervisor shall assign each maintainer under their supervision to primary maintenance functions for 95% of the productive work time on each shift. Productive work-time includes all work hours absent contractual breaks and the scheduled lunch period. Primary maintenance functions includes duties such as: removing, disassembling, cleaning, inspecting, machining, installing and adjusting vehicle parts, components or systems, fabrication, painting and structural work.

2. Such assignments will be based upon the quality/productivity standards agreed upon by the unions representing the hourly workforce, i.e. the flat rate manual times or the times established by the Work Procedure Review Teams for certain core jobs.

3. Time lost due to the lack of parts, unavailable tools or equipment or the unavailability of buses shall not exceed 5% of productive time on any shift.

4. Maintenance Supervisors shall help to monitor the work performance of the hourly workforce and will be responsible for helping to identify, counsel and help train maintainers who fail to meet normal productivity/quality standards as agreed upon by the hourly unions with NYC Transit.

5. Daily work assignments will be made to reflect the following principle:
To achieve maximum productivity with a quality work product recognizing that some employees have different skill levels and fairly distributing work assignments taking into consideration those skill levels and performance.


6. Maintenance Supervisors who meet the standards outlined in the above provisions at least 90% of the time in each quarter shall receive a $600 bonus to be paid within 20 work days from the end of the quarter. After the first two (2) full quarters, a supervisor must achieve 95% compliance to receive the bonus. Commencing in the second quarter of the year 2002, the bonus will be increased to $700.

7. In order to receive the bonus, the supervisor must actually work forty (40) days in the quarter in which the bonus is to be paid. Paid vacation shall count as time actually worked.

8. Management and the Union will monitor the program on a daily basis. Compliance will be measured and monitored utilizing NYC Transit's work order system.

9. The intent of this program is to reward superior performance, however, no punitive or disciplinary action resulting from individual non-achievement of this incentive will be taken based upon this agreement.

10. The agreement shall be reviewed every six (6) months by management and the Union to address problems. Any changes, amendments, or modifications to this agreement, must be agreed to by both parties.

11. Within 60 days after full ratification of the contract, all Maintenance Supervisors will receive a $300 bonus payment.
