MOU IV. CHILDCARE
Currently there is not committee on the subject of childcare. To the extent that a future campus-wide committee on the subject of childcare is formed, an Association endorsed representative will be allowed to participate.
The Employer recognizes the difficulty in obtaining affordable and well trained childcare providers during emergencies for house officers. The Employer will support the ability of house officers to utilize the Kids Care at Home at the subsidized rate for 48 hours/year with the goal of increasing this rate to at least 72 hours/year.
The Employer recognizes the need for flexible caregivers to be available for house officers who are unable to care for dependents outside of normal childcare centers due to clinical responsibilities. An hourly rate as well as caregiver responsibilities will be negotiated between the house officer and the childcare provider.
