MOU XII. WORK ENVIRONMENT
314 No later than thirty (30) days after the execution of collective bargaining agreement, the parties agree to initiate the following in coordination with the Administrative Liaison:
- Walkthrough of existing HOA-designated call rooms to determine whether repurposing of the space as multidisciplinary House Officer-specific workspace is feasible;
- If feasible space is identified, the Administrative Liaison will initiate the request for renovation;
- If no feasible space is identified, the Administrative Liaison and the Association will submit a joint request to the Space Needs Committee for the assignment of new space to be designated as multidisciplinary House Officer workspace.
In regards to future new inpatient tower(s) project(s), the Employer agrees to include House Officers, inclusive of one Association-appointed House Officer, on the appropriate planning committees that will be determined after the project(s) receive(s) Regental approval.
The Employer will endeavor to create multidisciplinary multipurpose work spaces specifically for House Officers in all clinical towers (exception: CVC, given proximity to the existing House Officer Lounge).
The parties agree that proximity to clinical responsibilities is an important consideration in the location of the multidisciplinary House Officer-specific work spaces.
Workstations and disposable supplies (paper, ink, etc.) for these multidisciplinary work spaces will be paid for or reimbursed by the University.
The Employer firmly commits to endeavor to secure these multidisciplinary work spaces for House Officers and advocate for them as described above.
