  2. What is a work week? The Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA) requires that a work week consist of 168 consecutive hours, in other words, 7 consecutive days (7 consecutive 24 hour periods). A work week is defined in the Personnel Rules as well as each of the bargaining unit contracts. For most State employees, a work week begins at Sunday midnight and ends the following Sunday at midnight.

  4. What is an Alternate Workweek? An alternate workweek is a fixed workweek which differs from the Bargaining Unit workweek definition: The workweek will consist of 37:30 hours in pay status defined by an Alternate Workweek (AWW) Letter of Agreement (LOA). Please refer to GGU Article 22.01 and SSU Article 25.1 Reassignment from the normal work schedule. AWW s are established by Letter of Agreement between the Union and the State of Alaska and becomes the governing language replacing contract language.

  5. May change the workweek from Sunday midnight to Sunday midnight to another agreed upon workweek. An employee must follow the LOA or contract provision and cannot make changes to the workweek without canceling and/or establishing a new LOA or agreement. A new AWW must be approved if the employee: Changes PCN Changes scheduled days off May be cancelled by either party with 15 days notice. AWW still must comply with the FLSA s definition of a workweek.

  6. The GGU AWW Schedule #1 The GGU Contract provides for an alternate work week with LOA 17-GG-066(amended) Master Agreement The work period consists of nine (9) working days over a fourteen(14) day period. Will include a one (1) hour or thirty minute (:30) lunch break mid way through each working day. The GGU established workweek will be specifically noted on the assignment form and will end after 37:30 hours(midday either on a Monday or Friday.)

  7. Completing the GGU AWW Schedule #1 form In the first section of the form, the employee must enter their current position control number (PCN), Legal Name, Employee ID number and Job Class. As set out in the terms of the Alternate Workweek Master Letter of Agreement 17-GG- 066(amended), the following bargaining unit member(s) is/are appointed to the alternate schedule designated below.

  8. The 2nd section of the form is the designated workweek schedule. This example reflects that the employee s scheduled workday starts at 8:00 am. Employee reaches 37:30 hours Monday at 11:30 am. The workweek starts and ends on Monday at 11:30 am. Please note the daily schedule work hours do not include the unpaid lunch break. Each workweek must have 37:30 hours designated. The workweek begins on (split day) Monday (day) at 11:30 (24 hr format) and ends on Monday (day) at 11:30 (24hr format) The regularly scheduled days, shift start times, and hours worked are as follows: Mon RDO RDO Tues 08:00 8:30 Wed 08:00 8:30 Thurs 08:00 8:30 Fri 08:00 8:30 Sat Sun Mon 08:00 3:30 Mon 11:30 5:00 Tues 08:00 8:30 Wed 08:00 8:30 Thurs 08:00 8:30 Fri 08:00 7:00 Sat Sun Mon RDO RDO
