- November 04, 2014 : Election Day
All school and all other DOE facilities will be OPEN on Election Day, Tuesday, Nov. 4, 2014.
But for the exceptions noted in the next paragraph, employees working on Election Day in the Children First Networks and central headquarters offices are entitled to be excused on another day, without charge to annual leave. The first personal business or annual leave (vacation) absence that an employee takes after Election Day will automatically be recorded as a “floating holiday.” However, that day off must be taken on or before Friday, August 28, 2015 and must be selected in a manner that ensures the efficient operation of the office. Where feasible, employees may use the traditional date for Election Day as their “floating holiday.”
Election Day is generally a holiday for "prevailing wage rate” employees (unless otherwise modified in their Consent Determination). Election Day is a regularly scheduled workday for administrative employees covered by a collective bargaining agreement hired after June 30, 2004, and for the following managerial/confidential employees hired after December 31, 2004: pedagogic managers not covered by a collective bargaining agreement (even when receiving benefits through the CSA), all administrative managers, and employees in Original Jurisdiction (OJ) titles receiving benefits through the City of New York Management Benefits Fund (MBF). In accordance with the collective bargaining agreement, Education Administrators represented by CSA no longer receive the Election Day floating holiday regardless of their hiring date.
