CITY ADOPTS SET
OF EMPLOYE RULES |
(Continued From Page One)
val by the Citv Manager: ’ unused '
I
portions of leave will expire at
the close of the next succeeding
fiscal year, except in unusual ca
ses: employes voluntarily separat
ed from service will be entitled to
compensation for unused portions
of their leave.
Sick Leave
Any of the unused sick leave
(one calendar day for each month
of service) may be accumulated
from one fiscal year to the next
to a maximum of 60 days carry
ing full pay. After 60 days have
been accumulated, an employe in;
service less than 10 years may
continue to accumulate an addi
tional 60 days, for which he will
be paid 50 per cent of his salary;
after 10 years of service, he is en
titled to accumulate sick leave, '
with full pay up to 120 days. After j
employes have been with the city;
20 years, they may begin to ac
cumulate an additional 20 days’
sick-leave at half-pay.
In order to put the matter of
leave on a definite basis, the ser
vice record of each present em
ploye- up to July 1, 1943, will be
compiled, and the amount of sick
leave which would have been j
accumulated without sickness de
termined. This amount will be di- j
vided in half.
Leaves oi aosenue wiuiuut :
may be granted by the depart-j
ment heads with the approval of
the City Manager, for a period not:
to exceed one year.
Full-time, regular employes in
ducted into the armed forces may
expect to return to their jobs
within a 60-day period following
honorable discharge, providing the
positions still exist, and they are
otherwise qualified.
Absence from work without
leave gives the department head
the right to declare the position
vacant, unless the absence is sat
isfactorily explained.
In case of death, or serious ill
ness in the immediate family, reg
ular employes may be granted
leave of absence with pay for a
period not to exceed three days.
System Of Reports
The City Manager will install
a system whereby department
heads will report semi-annually on
the performance of all employes.
The reports will be carefully
maintained under his supervision,
and will serve as a guide in the
matter of promotions, demotions,
salary increases or decreases, sep
arations from the service and
other personnel status changes
where such ratings will prove per
tinent and of value in making in
telligent and fair decisions. De
velopment of the report form is
said to be in process at the pres
ent time.
Promotions from one class or
position to a higher class are to
be made by department heads,
subject to the City Manager's ap
proval. Service ratings, along with
seniority and other qualifying fac
tors, shall determine an employe’s
merit for promotion.
The city government intends,
where desirable, to transfer em
ployes permanently or temporarily
from one department to another
where such transfers will result
in more effective work and will
lessen the necessity for making
temporary appointments to handle
peak departmental loads.
Demotions, as a penalty for dis
ciplinary purposes, may be made
oy department heads, subject to
the approval of the City Mana
ger. The same applies to suspen
sions, and dismissals. A regular,
full-time employe shall receive a
seven-day notice of dismissal, or
shall be paid for one week’s work
if separated at the time of notice
of dismissal, provided he has been
employed by the city for one con
secutive year or more.
Reduction In Employes
When it is necessary to reduce
the number of employes on the
city pay roll, because of lack of
works or funds, the City Mana
ger, conferring with department
heads, will undertake thorough in
vestigation of the problem. In
determining the employes to be
affected, the service ratings, and
length of service to the city, will
be considered.
Quoting directly, “City employes
are neither appointed to, nor re
tained in, the service upon the
basis of their political activities.
In return, while city employes
may exercise their right of suff
rage as citizens and engage in
normal political activities, it is
deemed for the best interest of
the municipal government that
they do not participate in muni
cipal election campaigns. This
applies whether an employe is on
or off duty.”
The City Manager will welcome
suggestions from department
heads and employes for improv
ing the personnel system. Excep
tions to the rules may be made at
the discretion of the City Manager
in cases involving exceptional cir
cumstances.
Police department, fire depart
ment, and city-county employes
remain subject to the action of
their respective civil service com
missions.
According to Mr. Nichols, there
are at present 91 persons whose
tenure of service with the city
exceeds 10 years. One employe
has worked for the city continu
ously for 36 years.
In connection with initiation of
the new program, central person
nel files and records are to be
established that will include com
plete information on every city
employe. Maintenance of the files,
and details concerning the han
dling of personnel and ratings
data will be in charge of Fred
Rippy, of the city staff.

Could Cleopatra Drink a Pearl
With Stomach Ulcer Pains?
An intriguing story of Cleopatra is the
one where an admirer praised the beauty
of two of her pearls, whereupon she
dropped one into a glass of wine and
drank it. She would hardly have done
this had she suffered after-eating pains.

workers had received a 10 1-2
per cent increase before they were

Some brotherhood leaders call
ed the 4 cent decision an “insult,”
The brotherhood chairmen plan
to meet in Chicago Oct. 22 to de
cide what to do about it.
Vinson, in a formal report to
day said he would “not disap
prove the recommendation of a
four-cent raise for the operating
brotherhoods, to take effect Oct.
2fi.
If the new emergency board fol
lows the pattern set by Vinson in
the operating brotherhoods case,
the higher paid men of the non
operating workers—such as ma
chinists—could not expect to get
substantially more than a four
cent increase. Lower-paid “non
op” workers, however, might get
more, under the government’s
provisions allowing increases
where wages actually are sub
standard.
