Bargaining for Child Care: Contract Language for Union Parents.
Coalition of Labor Union Women, New York, NY.
As part of an effort to develop a multifaceted agenda for dealing with employment-related child care problems of workers, members of the New York City Chapter of the Coalition of Labor Union Women gathered all the available contract clauses on child care, laid out the categories of problems which often need to be addressed, assembled the known clauses, and where necessary, drafted sample clauses of their own. This material forms the basis of this pamphlet, which is divided into four sections. The first, "Starting the Process," suggests language appropriate for the establishment of a labor-management committee and the assessment of the needs of the workers covered by a collective bargaining agreement. The second, "Changing Personnel Practices," addresses personnel policy issues, such as flexible work schedules, pregnancy, child care and parental leave, mandatory overtime and related issues. The third, "Making Child Care Available," includes language for creating an information and referral service, establishing a child care center operated by one or more employers, and designing a subsidy program to help parents pay for child care. The fourth section, "Utilizing Everyone's Talents," very briefly suggests roles for retirees. (RH)
